Arsenal Win London Derby

A single goal from Olivier Giroud saw Arsenal to a slender 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in a London derby at the Emirates on Sunday.

It was a cagey affair from the first whistle as neither team really wanted to give the other the edge.

The first chance of the match came from a free-kick in the fourth minute as Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla curled a 22-yard free-kick around the wall, but saw Hugo Lloris make a fine save.

Two minutes later and Cazorla had another chance from yet another set-piece, but he saw his shot from just outside the box go inches wide of the post.

Spurs had their first chance of the match in the 12th minute as some good wing play resulted in Roberto Soldado having a shot on goal, but Per Mertesacker was on hand to block the effort.

In the 23rd minute Arsenal found the only goal of the game as Theo Walcott worked his way to the by-line before cutting back for Giroud who finished superbly with one touch, 1-0.

Neither team really created any more decent scoring chances in the opening half.

The second 45 saw Spurs unable to really find their way back into the match as Arsenal controlled the midfield battle.

Only the brilliance of Lloris kept Spurs in the game in the 63rd minute as he denied Giroud a second with a brilliant diving save.

Spurs only decent chance of the second half came in the75th minute, but substitute Jermain Defoe fired his 20-yard volley narrowly wide of the post.

Arsenal continued to dictate play thereafter and held on for the slender 1-0 win.
