In the 32nd minute of today’s marquee Premier League encounter between North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham, Gareth Bale switched the play in a pass that sparked danger.
The Real Madrid loanee’s old pal from Los Blancos that joined Spurs in the summer, Sergio Reguilon, sent the ball into the box with a wonderful volleyed cross.
Lucas Moura controlled the ball before laying it off into the path of Erik Lamela, with the Argentine attacker drilling it into the bottom corner with a spectacular first-time Rabona shot.
The ball seeped through the legs of big-money Arsenal recruit Thomas Partey before it rolled into the back of the net. What a moment from the man who replaced Heung-Min Son early on after injury.

The sheer confidence from Lamela to try this in a massive matchup, off the bench as well.
