Arsenal vs. Tottenham score: Gunners continue unbeaten streak through Aubameyang, Torreira

The banana skin was thrown as Arsenal's Aubameyang celebrated the opening goal

The game at the Emirates Stadium was overshadowed by a number of unsavoury incidents, most notably the banana skin thrown in the direction of Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as he celebrated his side's opening goal.

That explains why Alderweireld - who played against Inter Milan in midweek and Chelsea last weekend - was benched for Spurs' match against Arsenal.

Ozil had missed Arsenal's game at Fulham on October 7 because of a similar complaint.

Emery's side have a tough clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford coming up on Wednesday.

A defining feature of Emery's first four months at the helm has been that Arsenal have tended to finish strongly, winning matches in the second half, and so it proved against Spurs. Aaron Ramsey is capable of playing in a deeper midfield role but Emery seems to favour the Welshman further forward.

Alexandre Lacazette subsequently put the hosts 3-2 up before Lucas Torreira added Arsenal's fourth.

Asked repeatedly about Ozil in his post-match press conference at the Emirates, Emery said that Ozil "has back ache" when asked why he could not play.

Television replays showed a banana skin present on the pitch as Arsenal celebrated their opening goal, scored by Gabon worldwide Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the penalty spot.

A miserable day for Tottenham was confounded by an 85th-minute red card awarded to Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen.

This result might have moved Arsenal into the top four at their neighbours' expense, but considering the teams' schedules - as well as the fact that, against form, they won this fixture a year ago - it would be hasty to talk about balances of power in north London yet.

Since signing for Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013 for what was then a club-record fee of £42m, Ozil has won three major honours with the club and established himself as key player under former boss Arsene Wenger.

Time will tell if Arsenal can return to the Champions League after a two-year absence.
