Arsenal and Tottenham charged over player conduct in north London derby

The incident occurred after Aubameyang scored his first goal in Arsenal's 4-2 win at Emirates Stadium and celebrated near the travelling supporters at the Emirates Stadium.

Both sets of players and benches were involved and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino sprinted down the touchline to play peacemaker.

Arsenal's form in the second half of games this season has been stunning as the north London outfit have scored 24 times in the second half, more than league leaders Manchester City.

Eric Dier has admitted that losing to Arsenal in the North London derby hurt his team.

Arsenal took the lead early through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's penalty, before an Eric Dier goal and Harry Kane penalty turned the match around for Tottenham.

Ozil was axed for the win over Bournemouth last weekend and Emery publicly suggested that the playmaker wasn't suited to playing in high intensity games amid reports he's concerned about the players work ethic. Then asked whether Ozil had even attended the game at the Emirates, Emery said he "did not know".

Pochettino said: "They made two changes and put another striker on in Lacazette and Ramsey. At the moment the most important thing is he's smiling, he has the commitment, the behaviour and the performances like yesterday - that's the best for him and for us".

"In the second half, we made some changes".

"In the first 10 or 15 minutes we were not good enough".

"In the end when we conceded the fourth and the sending off of Jan Vertonghen, the game was over".

Following their emphatic victory over their arch-rivals, Arsenal now sit fourth on the Premier League standings with 30 points, level with Spurs who dropped to fifth.

"We respect them a lot individually and collectively, and we know it's a very hard match away".
