Twitter reacts as Spurs and Arsenal excite with derby draw
Well, that was exciting. Arsenal travelled to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham in what has been described as the biggest north London derby ever.
The Gunners took the lead through Aaron Ramsey who finished off a lovely move with a delicate flick before Francis Coquelin looked to be the villain of the piece after earning an unnecessary second yellow.
Toby Alderweireld brought Spurs back into the game, while Harry Kane scored a fantastic goal to make it 2-1.
Alexis Sanchez finished the scoring to earn his side a point and Twitter was kept on the edge of their collective seats throughout the early kickoff.
Here’s how people reacted:

Should never be letting a team back in at 2-1 up with a man advantage. Arsenal fully deserved that point though. Incredible game. #THFCvAFC

Ramsey’s delicate flick was the first piece of action to get Twitter excited.

The new Spurs lad scoring a belter then removing his plastic mask to reveal he was really Harry Kane was the best twist in football history.

Conversely, Coquelin came in for a lot of criticism after it looked like he had cost his side the north London derby.
Idiocy of the highest level from Coquelin

However, others were more annoyed by the performance of referee Michael Oliver.
