Emotions were at boiling point as a rip-roaring north London derby hurtled into its final quarter when Unai Emery – his Arsenal team trailing 2-1 – decided to make a move. It was not a universally popular one. Off came Alexandre Lacazette, who had been excellent, and on came Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The switch was jeered by sections of the home support.
Emery would be vindicated. The idea was to give Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a central role and, four minutes later, he had ghosted in behind Jan Vertonghen to touch home Matteo Guendouzi’s lovely ball.
