Watch: Dier Celebration Ignites Melee At North London Derby

This is the derby atmosphere that we all know and love.

Spurs and Arsenal are currently in action at the Emirates, and it’s 2-2 between the North London rivals.

Arsenal took the early lead through a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty after Jan Vertonghen handled the ball in the box.

After a half hour, a Christian Eriksen free kick found Eric Dier at the near post, and the Englishman equalised. But he wasn’t done there.

Dier shushed the home crowd, incurring the wrath of some of the Arsenal squad, particularly Gunners veteran Aaron Ramsey.

The Welshman got into it with Dele Alli as others attempted to stop the confrontation getting ugly.

Arsenal have often been accused of having a soft underbelly, and Graeme Souness for one was happy to see the fight back in the Gunners after years of passivity, though the objects being thrown were unnecessary.

Before half-time, Heung Min Son went down under minimal contact to earn Spurs a penalty of their own, which Harry Kane converted to give the visitors the lead at the break.

After the restart, Aubameyang got his second of the afternoon to make the game finely poised once again as we reach the conclusion.
