Goodness me how have Tottenham not scored there. Luka Modric makes things happen with a flicked pass out to Jermain Defoe on the right flank, and with Alex Song confused about this whole 'being a centre back' thing Per Mertesacker is left marking both Emmanuel Adebayor and Rafael van der Vaart. The German deals with this problem by completely ignoring the latter, leaving him to able into the area and get on the end of Defoe's cross, eight yards from goal. Wojciech Szczesny makes a good save.
At the other end of the pitch, Arsenal also ought to have found the net. Robin van Persie has the ball behind the defence (not for the first time, either), and his cutback eludes the entirety of the Spurs team and is met by Gervinho at the top of the area. With Brad Friedel helpless, all the new signing has to do is hit the target. He doesn't, of course. Still 0-0 at White Hart Lane. Somehow. Oh, and Mertesacker's just picked up a yellow card for a foul on Defoe.
