  1. The atmosphere was electrifying and we couldn't expect less, of course it's the North London derby. The Gunners were hosting the Spurs at the Emirates Stadium and as usual expectations were high. After the blast of the whistle the atmosphere exploded into a high press of relentless intensity.

    The Gunners emerged victorious from the most recent north London derby with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang scoring twice while Lucas Torreira and Alexandre Lacazette added a goal apiece.

    The win extend their unbeaten run to 19 games in all competitions, while the defeat saw the Tottenham slip down to 5th position a point below the Gunners. After the match, several Arsenal players posted pictures and videos of their celebrations in the dressing room.

    Tottenham boss Maurizio Pochettino has criticised Arsenal’s players for their exuberant dressing room celebrations in the wake of their 4-2 victory over Tottenham on Sunday.

    The Argentine feels Arsenal’s players should reserve their wild celebrations for when they win titles. ‘Obviously if you win a trophy like I did when I was a player, it is time to celebrate,’ said Pochettino.

    ‘Of course, show the fans you are happy, it’s fantastic… but when you win something special. ‘I accept people need it. It is how you feed your ego and I accept it is a new world. ‘But I am of the older generation and, personally, I don’t like them.

    ‘This is my mentality. I accept new technology but I try to keep a bit of that away. ‘I love to celebrate the things with your team-mates but I love to celebrate in private and not make it public.’

    After the match, Aubameyang shared a video of the dressing room celebrations while Sead Kolasinac referred to the Gunners as the "Kings of North London" in a tweet.

    Pochettino added that the posts show the status of Tottenham, as teams are feeling pride from taking down Pochettino's side.
    "When people celebrate like this, it's because they respect you and see you as a big club," he said.

    "When we arrived here five years ago, the derby was a little bit 'well it's normally Arsenal always above Tottenham.' But now the last two seasons we were above [them], and how they celebrate, of course it's a derby but you start to see [those social media posts].
