Epic North London Derby highlight of midweekBy: Rob | October 29th, 2008
Tottenham produced a stunning comeback to draw 4-4 against Arsenal in tonights North London derby. [Goals here] A spectacular David Bently strike opened the scoring, but Arsenal came back to lead 3-1, before Spurs fightback, which included two goals in the last five minutes, earned a point for Harry Redknapp’s new side.
So same old defensive problems for Spurs, but perhaps it represents a turned corner for Redknapp’s whose side surely would have just laid down and died having gone down at some points this season. If the fight is back, then half the battle is surely done.
Another dropped two points for Arsenal, who are slipping further and further behind Liverpool and Chelsea (Remember when they were the frontrunners last year?), and Arsenal now sit three points back from Chelsea, who sit second.
In the other games, Everton scraped a 1-0 against Bolton, thanks to a late goal. Two Ronaldo goals grabbed Man United a 2-0 win against West Ham. Boro won 2-0 against Manchester City, a Steven Gerrard pen ensured Tony Adams reign got off to a losing start. Chelsea cruised to a 3-0 win against Hull, Stoke picked up a 1-0 against Sunderland, Aston Villa and Blackburn played out an exciting 5 goal thriller which resulted in a 3-2 win to the Villa, and Fulham beat Wigan 2-0.
