Arsenal striking duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette scored as their side roared back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home to rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

It was a thrilling north London derby in the English Premier League (EPL) but it was the away team who drew first blood.

Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen nudged the ball into an empty net on the rebound to give the visitors an early lead.

The goal came after a superb piece of hold-up play from Son Heung-min who allowed Erik Lamela to fire at goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Arsenal had most of the ball but Spurs were far more threatening on the break and Leno was forced to keep out stinging efforts from Kane and Eriksen.

Tottenham were then awarded a penalty kick for a clumsy foul by Granit Xhaka on Son.

Kane scored it from the spot in the 40th minute to put Spurs on track for a first league win on enemy territory in nine years.

However, Lacazette halved the deficit right before half-time with an emphatic strike after an exquisite pass from Nicolas Pepe.

Kane came close to sealing the points for Tottenham when he struck the post but Arsenal became galvanised when Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos came off the bench.

He smashed a shot which goalkeeper Hugo Lloris did well to tip over.

An equaliser looked ever likelier and duly arrived when Gabon striker Aubameyang prodded a lofted pass from Matteo Guendouzi into the net in the 71st minute.

It was his third goal in four Premier League games this season.

Arsenal’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos had a goal ruled out for offside while Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko spurned a last-gasp chance in a thrilling finale by blasting over the bar.
