After a rather dull seventy odd minutes the North London Derby sprang into life in the final twenty minutes. Prior to the game coming alight, Aaron Ramsey scored yet again at Wembley, and declared that Wembley was his f**king house, to put the Gunners one-nil up at half time, while Harry Kane had a goal ruled out for offside.
Arsenal had a few more chances to put the game out of sight, but were unable to do so.
Then the game kicked into a higher gear when Tottenham were awarded a penalty after Harry Kane was fouled by Shkodran Mustafi, Kane stepped up and tucked away the penalty.
While nobody was arguing over the awarding of the penalty, Arsenal fans felt that the there should have been an offside from the free-kick
Needless to say Arsenal fans on Twitter were not happy with the awarding of the penalty.

While some Arsenal fans were calling for the inclusion of VAR, as soon as possible.
Surely nobody is still thinking VAR is a bad idea..... it’s an embarrassment that the best league in the world is still impacted by amateur officiating with no tech support/review......

However, that wasn't the end of the controversy with the match entering injury time Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was brought down fairly easily by Davinson Sanchez and Arsenal had a chance to win it at the death.
Like Kane, Aubameyang stepped up to take the penalty and try and secure Arsenal all three points, but seen his penalty saved by Hugo Lloris.
Many felt that Aubameyang's miss was karma for a blatant dive to win the penalty.
They weren't happy with one aspect of the penalty, however, as there appears to be a clear encroachment from Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen, who would go on to clear the ball in the ensuing scramble.
Pretty incredible pic this. Amazing challenge by Vertonghen to deflect the follow up over, but no real surprise he got there. pic.twitter.com/FHZXRoqYl7

Still the controversy and the match weren't over, Tottenham went down the other end and went close to scoring. In the melee that followed Davinson Sanchez decide to leave a little mark on the left knee of Laurent Koscielny.
Rose’s lunge on Leno = not a sending off; Sanchez’s stamp on Koscielny = not even a booking; Vertoghen encroaching in the area during Auba’s penalty = no retake given. The @fa and their officials don’t even try to hide the bias anymore. Worrying. pic.twitter.com/YTkqdf7UvU

Not to be outdone, Arsenal's resident terrier Lucas Torreira decided to leave his own mark on Tottenham's Danny Rose in the dying moments of the match.
Even though it took a while to get going, all in all it was just another classic North London Derby.
