Spurs have jumped out to a 2-1 lead through 35 minutes after Arsenal grabbed the early lead. The goal to level the match at 1 will be the big first half talking point, however. Eric Dier got on the end of a free kick and glanced a header past a flailing Bernd Leno.

The ensuing celebrating saw the England international shush the Arsenal fans in the corner. That gesture caused fans and Arsenal substitutes warming up in the same area some consternation, leading to a coming together.
Words were exchanged along with pushing and grabbing. In the end, referee Mike Dean brandished a sole yellow card to Dier.
Harry Kane quickly followed with a penalty to give Spurs the lead. Hold on to your chairs, it’s all kicking off today.
