Unai Emery's first North london derby wasn't bad.

It looked like it could be a tough afternoon for Arsenal going into the half-time break.

The Gunners took an early lead but goals from Eric Dier and Harry Kane turned the score in Tottenham's favour.

Step forward, Unai Emery.

The Arsenal coach - experiencing his first taste of the North London derby - made two game-changing half-time substitutions and his side went on to win the match in emphatic fashion.

Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette entered the pitch at the break, with the former laying on two assists and the latter scoring the vital goal to put Arsenal into the lead after 74 minutes.

It put into perspective the superb job the Spanish coach is doing at the club and this was underlined on social media after the match finished.

It took a lot of courage to make two bold substitutions at half-time, but Emery didn't doubt himself.

Arsenal march on with their 19-match unbeaten run and they have their new manager to thank for their new-look mentality.
