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