EPL : Arsenal 5-2 Tottenham - Match Report w. video

Arsenal recovered from two goals down to thrash Tottenham 5-2 in an enthralling north London derby at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs looked to be on course for victory as an early goal from Louis Saha and Emmanuel Adebayor's penalty put Tottenham 2-0 up within 34 minutes.

But Arsenal mounted a comeback that showed character with providing 30 minutes of dazzling attacking football to score five goals to tear apart Harry Redknapp's side.

Bacary Sagna's header and a world-class strike from Robin van Persie put Arsenal level at 2-2 before the interval - and set up a second-half display that left Spurs beaten long before the end.

Tomas Rosicky put Arsenal in front just after the break and the rout was completed by a quickfire double from Theo Walcott.
