Arsenal fought back from a goal and man down to claim a 2-2 draw in an absorbing premier League encounter at White Hart Lane today.

Both sides came into the match hoping to get their title push back on track following midweek defeats and it was the Gunners who took the lead against the run of play with a brilliant back-heeled Aaron Ramsey handing the Gunners a half-time lead.

In seven frantic second half minutes, Arsene Wenger’s side looked to be heading for their fourth consecutive defeat. First Francis Coquelin was dismissed for his second booking before Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane scored within two minutes as Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked to be heading for all three points.

Sanchez however put aside his recent scoring drought o level on 76 minutes, though goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will feel he could have done more to prevent the goal.

Spurs move to within two points of leaders Leicester, while the Gunners remain a  further three points behind their North London rivals.
