How on earth is that not 1-1? Arsenal go on the offensive once again and the Tottenham defence does a Vermaelen, going almost totally walkabout and leaving Robin van Persie unmarked in the middle. Six yards from goal. That's not generally a good thing, but Scott Parker manages to get a heroic block in to buy some time, and although the ball makes its way back to the Dutch striker, his second effort flashes inches wide of Brad Friedel's right post, with Kyle Walker very acrobatically not clearing the ball. Well then.
Anyway, Spurs are still by an large penned back in their half but for the occasional scurry forward, and they're having a hard time dealing with van Persie - he and Yossi Benayoun look like real threats today. Van Persie wins a corner with a decent long range shot, and Tomas Rosicky forces a fine save from Friedel from said set piece. This pressure's going to tell soon, surely?
