Aubameyang Hits Legendary Henry Celebration After Scoring In North London Derby

The Gunners put Tottenham away by halftime in Sunday’s derby.

It took Arsenal only 34 minutes to effectively claim Sunday’s derby match against Tottenham at the Emirates thanks to early goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameynag and Bukayo Saka.

The young trio of Rowe (21), Saka (20) and Martin Ødegaard (22) danced through Tottenham’s static defense with an enthusiasm and desire that made Harry Kane look like a beached beluga, and it was Ødegaard, Saka and Rowe that combined on the opener in the 12th minute. 

In the 27th, an Arsenal counterattack ended with Rowe finding Aubameyang for the finish. The striker celebrated with Thierry Henry’s famous knee slide (now a statue outside the Emirates) after scoring a wonder goal against Spurs in 2002.

Henry was actually at the match (look at the drip on that retro kit). 

Saka got a deserved goal of his own in the 34th minute to make it 3-0.

Son Heung-min pulled one back for Tottenham in the 79th, and we could’ve had an interesting finale if Aaron Ramsdale hadn’t pulled off a spectacular save to deny Lucas Moura.

Arsenal climbs to 10th with the win while Tottenham drops to 11th.
