Hugo Lloris has gifted Arsenal the lead in the north London derby at the Emirates just minutes into the second half of the north London derby.

Tottenham have started the second period in a similar fashion as how they opened the encounter, on the back foot and failing to keep control of the ball which is inviting pressure from the Gunners.

Lloris was to blame for Arsenal’s second when he palmed away a cross and saw the ball poked back to him by Romero go through his arms and allowed Gabriel Jesus to prod home to lead 2-1.
