The North London derby ended 1-1 at the Emirates, Nacer Chadli opened the scoring for Tottenham in he 56th minute and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain equalised for Arsenal to avoid a home defeat to local rivals. Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey picked up an injury in the first half of the game and were forced to leave the field.
