Tottenham staged a stunning comeback to win at Arsenal for the first time in 17 years and wreck the Gunners’ hopes of going top of the Premier League.
Arsenal were on course to leapfrog Chelsea, if only briefly, as they cruised into a two-goal lead at the interval courtesy of goals from Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh.
Spurs, after being comprehensively outplayed, then embarked on an unlikely revival that not only saw them wipe out Arsenal’s comfortable advantage but go on to take all three points.
Gareth Bale started the recovery with a fine finish five minutes after the break, before Rafael van der Vaart levelled from the spot after Cesc Fabregas inexplicably handled his free-kick.
And with only five minutes left Younes Kaboul reduced the vast majority of The Emirates gallery to silence when he headed Van der Vaart’s free-kick low past Lukasz Fabianski.
