    Well then, a point apiece in the north London derby and that's a wrap from us for the evening.

    We are going into cryogenic storage during the international break. See you on the other side...

  2. 'A great talent'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Dele Alli

    Spurs goalscorer Harry Kane tells BBC Sport: "We played very well. Even in the second half we had our chances to kill it off, but if you don’t kill top teams off they come back at you. There was talk about whether we'd have enough energy and I thought we showed we did."

    On Dele Alli: "He's a great, great talent. It doesn't matter what stage he's on, he'll try things and try to express himself, which is great for Spurs and great for the country."

  4. 'A good 1-1'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Arsenal

    Arsenal goal

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: "In the second half we showed the mental strength of a side determined not to lose the game. In the end I think it’s a good 1-1.

    "Kieran Gibbs' movement is good. His timing in the box is good. Sometimes when he gets into a position he doesn't believe he can score.

    "What this championship shows is that you have to fight 200% in every game for a result, you've seen that in all the games today. It shows it will be down to the team that can find the mental resource in every game."

  5. 'We should be proud'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino tells BBC Sport: "The way we played we should feel very proud. The effort was brilliant. The level we showed and the commitment was fantastic. It’s the way we want to carry on.

    "In six days we've played three matches, maybe we felt it in the final minutes. We need to recognise we are a very young team. This experience is very important.

    "We need to show we are maturing. The level we have today is good, we need to show more and to improve. It's early to set a limit or to expect a lot of things."

  6. Back in form

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Harry Kane has scored 10 goals in 13 Premier League London derbies.

    The England forward has scored five goals in his last three Premier League games. He also has 22 Premier League goals in 2015, four more than any other player in the competition.

    Danny Charity: If that match taught us anything, it's that Arsenal will never be serious title challengers with Giroud as main striker.

  9. Post update

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger tells Sky Sports: "Tottenham bossed the first half, Santi Cazorla was not at the races. We had restricted options on the bench.

    "I must give credit to players, they refused to lose the game.

    "We now gain two weeks' treatment for 10 players who are not available and I hope that we do not lose more."

  10. Post update

    That is a strange one. Surely if Santi Cazorla was not feeling well he should have told the bench?

  11. 'Cazorla was half conscious'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Arsenal

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: "The game could have gone both ways. We were a bit unlucky as well because we played the first half with Santi Cazorla who was half conscious.

    "I changed him at half-time. I don’t know what happened to him. He felt perfectly alright earlier, but when we went to go back out they said he felt dizzy."

  12. Post update

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Arsene Wenger says that every game in the Premier League goes to the wire and that Santi Cazorla was feeling dizzy during the first half.

    Full quotes to come.

  13. 'Disappointment shows how far we've come'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Dele Alli

    Spurs midfielder Dele Alli on Sky Sports: "The boys will be disappointed. We feel we've dominated most of the game. To be disappointed shows how far we've come."

  14. 'We are making progress'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "Yes we should have won but I feel very proud of the players. We played very well. You need to kill the game. When we were 1-0 up we had chances to score again.

    "We played three matches in six days and had one day less to recover but we showed great character and personality.

    "We need to carry on in the same philosophy. But we are 11 games unbeaten and I can feel hugely proud. The progress we are making is correct."

  15. 'Disappointing to drop points'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Arsenal

    Kieran Gibbs

    Arsenal goalscorer Kieran Gibbs on Sky Sports: "Goals don't come often for me but when they do hopefully it's enough to help the team. We know what the game means to everyone. We're struggling with injuries at the moment, players were tired from midweek. Obviously it's disappointing to drop points, especially when we're in such a strong position in the league."

  16. Moyes on his way out?

    Spanish La Liga

    If you haven't read this excellent piece from Andy West on the future of David Moyes, it may be worth giving it a read now.

    We hear that Moyes is set to lose his job.

  17. 'Put in a great shift'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Harry Kane

    Spurs goalscorer Harry Kane on Sky Sports: "I thought we played well. It was end to end and an open game. Credit to Arsenal, they kept coming and got their goal. We've had a tough week and put in a great shift and good performance."

  18. What's next?

    The dreaded international break is set to send the tumbleweeds across the Premier League tundra for the next fortnight but who is up next for these two?

    Arsenal restart at West Brom on Saturday 21 November, and Spurs play West Ham on the Sunday afternoon. 

  19. 'A great game'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    John Hartson

    Former Arsenal and West Ham striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Kyle Walker's had a great game and not done much wrong. Harry Kane has been isolated but comes away with a goal and will start for England against Spain. For Arsenal, Olivier Giroud has been a big target, Mesut Ozil is close to being back to his best. It's been a really great game.

    "Arsenal had to do something to get back into the game. Spurs looked a threat in the second half, but I think a draw was probably about right."

  20. A good day for Leicester

    Table

    No wins for Arsenal or Manchester City means that it's a good day for Leicester and Manchester United at the top of the table.

  21. FULL-TIME

    All over! A good point for Arsenal as they looked like being swamped for a period of time in the second half, a good result for Spurs as it keeps their long unbeaten run going.

  31. SUBSTITUTION

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Ryan Mason is on for the final 10 minutes, replacing Dele Alli in midfield. Spurs will kick themselves if they don't win this.

  32. CLOSE!

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    He's in there again Kieran Gibbs! Per Mertesacker flicks on a corner and he's almost there at the far post again but this time Hugo Lloris shovels it away. From the corner Olivier Giroud batters a shot on the bounce over the top.

    The Emirates bouncing now, now it's Tottenham who look slack at the back...

  33. 'Gibbs is where it counts'

    Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    John Hartson

    Former Arsenal and West Ham striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "He's in there. Kieran Gibbs has come on as a substitute and he's there where it counts, making a nuisance of himself. He got it on target which is the one thing you need to do - he gets his reward."

    Arsenal celebrate
  34. GOAL - Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

    Kieran Gibbs (77 mins)

    Kieran Gibbs can add an attacking threat! But it's poor from the usually reliable Hugo Lloris. Mesut Ozil stands up a cross to the far post, Gibbs is behind Kyle Walker to get a shot in on goal, down into the turf and Lloris should save that but it bounces past him and in.

    Not sure Arsenal deserve that but they'll take it!

    Arsenal 0-1 Tottenham

    Arsenal look tired now. You try chasing Bayern Munich around the park for 90 minutes a few days before a derby with your biggest rivals.

    Harry Kane's eyes light up for number two but his header is turned over, and then from the corner Petr Cech has to make a flying save to keep out a Toby Alderweireld header!

    It's all Spurs. 

  40. 'Spurs are finding space'

    Arsenal 0-1 Tottenham

    John Hartson

    Former Arsenal and West Ham striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Every time Spurs go forward they look like they can score. Erik Lamela, Christan Eriksen, Harry Kane - all finding space. The Arsenal defence has to be tighter."

    Kyle Walker has the legs on this Arsenal team and gets down the right again, this time he has the ability to pick out Christian Eriksen in the box, his first-time shot is heading in until Petr Cech claws it away.

    Seconds later Harry Kane is slid in behind the line and drags a great chance wide.

    Should be game over!

  44. 'Giroud does everything right'

    Arsenal 0-1 Tottenham

    John Hartson

    Former Arsenal and West Ham striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Olivier Giroud won't have a better opportunity to score all season. He does everything right really and it just goes past the far post. People will say he should have scored it - but he's unlucky for the ball not to roll in."

    Plenty of doubt about this as Petr Cech and Per Mertesacker get into a right old mess at the back, they almost give the ball to Erik Lamela for a tap-in. Dear oh dear...

    Spurs have now put Dele Alli into the hole and he's not falling down it, beating Mathieu Flamini easily with a lovely touch. Spurs then move it around nicely and send in Christian Eriksen, he shoots from a tight angle and it deflects off the thigh of Flamini and spins just wide...

  77. GOAL - Arsenal 0-1 Tottenham

    Harry Kane (32 mins)

    Clinical. Absolutely clinical! Danny Rose plays a clever ball over the top, Laurent Koscielny steps up to play offside and Harry Kane is away and onside.

    Kane has a lot of time, but he uses it really well. Delays the shot, waits for Petr Cech to move and just glides the shot across the keeper and in.

    Spurs now having a lengthy spell of possession, slowing the game down. They work it well too, waiting for Kyle Walker to join in and cross, it goes all the way through to Danny Rose but his shot over the top is poor.

    "You never know how the opponent is but for us it is a derby, it is a very important game. We know what it means to us and our supporters.

    "We must forget the past record for us here, just focus on today. It will be a tough game, Arsenal  have unbelievable players but we have trust in ourselves."

    Sultan: Not sure you knew him then. Best header of the ball I know? Mutiu Adepoju aka headmaster. Played for Nigeria and in Spain

    James McNair: Best header of a ball I think I've seen is probably Martin Chivers.

    Stephen Pardoe: Don't think I've ever seen Callum Flanagan miss a defensive header in his three years at non-league Redditch United

  111. 'Embarrassing, shocking, not good enough'

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    John Hartson

    Former Arsenal and West Ham striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    On Tottenham's run of one win in 25 at Arsenal: "That record is nothing but embarrassing. It's absolutely shocking. If you're a Tottenham player, you're wanting to put that right. That is nowhere near good enough. It's just a shocking record, hence Arsenal always finishing above Spurs in the table."  

  112. 'We must respond to Munich defeat'

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Arsenal

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on Sky Sports: "I hope the players have recovered from Munich but it was intense physically.

    "You always want to respond to a disappointing result, we have conceded five goals, we accept that and now we must respond. Overall we have a good defensive record.

    "Is this one of the best Tottenham sides I have faced? I will tell you after the game. They look very well balanced and can hurt you on the counter attack."

    He's in and out of favour like Donald Trump but since debuting in August 2012, Olivier Giroud has scored the most headed goals in the Premier League (15).

    But, quite simply, who is the best header of a football you've ever seen?

    At whatever level you like, schoolboy stuff to World Cups, nominations please for the best man in the air you can recall.

    Arsenal go again with Joel Campbell in the three behind striker Olivier Giroud, can he step up?

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Liverpool defender

    "Arsenal were lucky to only lose 5-1 to Bayern. The Gunners were so poor defensively and there was no midfield cover - the final score could have been anything.

    "This will be a lot tighter - there is no way Arsenal will be so open again and Tottenham are likely to put their defence first."

  116. 'We all dream of a team of...'

    Someone in the Arsenal media team really, really wanted Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to play today but unfortunately the England man is injured and not in the squad at all...

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Hugo Loris and Petr Cech are out going through their warm-ups at opposite ends of the ground, there aren't many keepers better than those two in the top flight.

    Will either leave with a clean sheet this afternoon? 

  118. 'Can Spurs make the top four?'

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former Tottenham and England midfielder

    "The question for Tottenham every year seems to be: can they make the top four? The answer is usually 'no'.

    "This season, with Manchester United not playing brilliantly and Chelsea well below their usual standards, there is a massive chance for them.

    "Sunday's north London derby at Arsenal will be a huge test of where Spurs are at, especially because they have been battered at Emirates Stadium a couple of times in the past few years."

    Jermaine Jenas
    Image caption: Jenas enjoyed that one in 2010...

    Spurs have not won there since November 2010, when we came back to win 3-2 in a game I played in. We had a decent record against them at that time, and had come back to draw 4-4 the season before.  

  119. 'Spurs favourites to finish in top four'

    Arsenal make just one change from the team thumped by Bayern Munich in midweek but it could be a key one as Laurent Koscielny returns at centre-back in place of Gabriel.

    Arsenal: Cech: Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Cazorla; Campbell, Ozil, Sanchez; Giroud

  122. 'A high-scoring draw?'

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Jonathan Pearce

    BBC football commentator

    "North London derbies after Arsenal versus Bayern encounters have become common. In 2014 the Gunners won at Spurs after a morale-boosting, if futile, draw in Munich.

    "But the home humbling by the Germans in February 2013 left them so befuddled they lost at Tottenham 12 days later.

    "If they're to hold their season together they can't afford to let the auld enemy go away with just a second victory from 26 visits.

    "Injuries to Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have blunted Arsenal's pace, and they can't defend without Laurent Koscielny - so will be relieved the Frenchman is expected to be fit.

    "Tottenham are in the mood after three victories on the spin. I can see a high-scoring draw."

  123. 'I predicted Arsenal to win the league'

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Shay Given

    Stoke keeper on BBC Match of the Day 2 Extra

    "I want to say that before a ball was kicked I predicted Arsenal to win the league. One of the biggest things for Arsenal was dropping Petr Cech in the Champions League and now it looks like they won’t qualify."

    Harry Kane celebrates

    "Harry Kane is a man who always puts himself in the best position to get a shot away at goal. As a goalscorer, even if you have a lean spell you never lose it."

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham boss on BBC Radio 5 live

    On Tottenham's run of one win in 25 at Arsenal: "Stats don't worry me too much. It's Arsenal v Tottenham but it's different players. It's down to those 11 players on the day. I don't think they sit in the dressing room before the game and think 'we haven't won here in however long'."

    Spurs meanwhile have only lost once in the Premier League all season, and a win at the home of the old enemy this afternoon could see them move into fifth place.

    Is Champions League football on its way back to the Lane?

  133. Post update

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Arsenal come into the north London derby with that massive injury list and on the back of an absolute trousering in Munich.

    But they are second in the Premier League and could go top again this afternoon...

  134. Injury crisis?

    Arsenal v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Arsene Wenger

    "At the moment we have too many players out.

    "I am very concerned, honestly, because we are only in November and we have so many players out knowing we go into the Christmas period soon."

    Theo Walcott

    Does this sound familiar?

    Arsenal are going into a key stage of the season with an injury list longer than a seven-year-old's Christmas shopping list.

    Jack Wilshere is out, Theo Walcott is injured, Aaron Ramsey is out, the Ox is out - even Tomas Rosicky is missing.

    All we need is Abou Diaby to complete the top trumps set. 

    Do Tottenham smell blood?
