In the 43rd minute of today’s fierce North London derby clash between Arsenal and Tottenham, the Gunners conjured up a move that ensured they didn’t head into halftime down against their rivals.
Emile Smith Rowe drove forward after a pass from midfield from Thomas Partey, with the starlet then slotting the ball out wide to the ever-marauding Kieran Tierney.
Tierney showed sensational quality as he controlled the ball, faced up Matt Doherty, before beating the Spurs right-back with some lovely skill.
The Scotsman then fired a low cross into the middle of the box, which Martin Odegaard turned into the back of the net via a slight deflection with a lovely first-time strike.
Odegaard only opened his account for the Gunners on Thursday night with a stunner in the Europa League tie against Olympiacos, the Real Madrid loanee has now made it two in two games.

Arsenal did dominate the majority of the first-half with both possession and chance creation, so they do deserve to head into the break on level terms at the very least.
