Arsenal v Tottenham - Goal Alert

Arsenal are taking on Tottenham at the Emirates in the first North London derby of the season.

And it's first blood to Arsenal, somewhat against the run of play - a tidy finish as Olivier Giroud slots home after 22 minutes. It's the first goal Tottenham have conceded this season. Giroud has now netted in each of Arsenal's opening three fixtures.
