Arsenal rescue draw at Tottenham as Leicester win to go five points clear

The North London derby did not disappoint as 10-man Arsenal salvaged a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane.

Arsenal battled to a 2-2 draw in the North London derby at Tottenham Hotspur despite seeing Francis Coquelin sent off early in the second half.

Second-placed Spurs began the day three points clear of Arsenal and had been on course to effectively end their arch-rivals' Premier League title hopes when they scored two quickfire goals after Coquelin had seen red, but Alexis Sanchez's 76th-minute goal gave the Gunners a share of the spoils.

Arsenal scored against the run of play on 39 minutes, Aaron Ramsey producing a superb flick from Hector Bellerin's pass to send the ball past Hugo Lloris, sparking the visitors' best period of the game.

Within 10 minutes of the restart, though, the momentum shifted firmly back towards Spurs as Coquelin was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Harry Kane.

Toby Alderweireld fired past David Ospina following a corner on the hour mark, and Kane then sent a superb strike into the top corner from out wide two minutes later.

The Gunners once more silenced White Hart Lane with just under 15 minutes remaining as Sanchez slid the ball past Lloris into the bottom corner to secure a share of the spoils.
