A Younes Kaboul (pictured) header in the 86th minute gave Tottenham Hotspur a stunning come-from-behind victory in the North London Derby, 3-2 against Arsenal at the Emirates. Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh scored within the first half-hour to give the Gunners a seemingly untouchable lead against their biggest rivals. But Gareth Bale scored on 50 minutes to get Spurs back in the game. Rafael Van der Vaart’s free kick was handled by Cesc Fàbregas, giving Van der Vaart a penalty. He connected in the 67th minute to draw the visitors even. Kaboul nodded in the winner just four minutes from time to take all three points for the visitors for the first time in seventeen years. Arsenal do remain in second place, at least until Manchester United finish their game later in the day. Spurs climb back into fifth place, again until the rest of the weekend’s fixtures have played out.
