ARSENAL managed to turn the tides in the second half yet again coming from behind eventually beating Tottenham 4-2.
And Dele Alli’s shocking passing stat that emerged after the game showed perfectly the extent of the Gunners’ dominance.
Unai Emery‘s men started the clash strongly and took the lead early thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty.
Tottenham, however, suddenly came back into the game thanks to Eric Dier’s header, and even finished the first half 2-1 up.
But after the break Spurs players could rarely touch the ball as the Gunners completely dominated the match.
In fact, Tottenham star Dele Alli made only six passes in the second half… four of them coming from kick-offs.

Alli made only one pass on the opposition’s half after the break.
Apart from that, the England international could only get the ball at his feet while restarting the game from the middle of the pitch.
That came after three second-half goals from Arsenal, securing the Gunners’ victory over bitter rivals.
Both Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira joined Aubameyang on the scoresheet as the Gunners went on to extending their unbeaten run to 19.
Emery’s men seem to transform into a completely different side in the second 45 minutes this season as they have scored 24 goals – league’s most – after the break so far.
That is three more than Manchester City.
And also two more than the total Manchester United managed to score in the Premier League in the current campaign.
After the victory over Tottenham, Arsenal are now fourth, eight points behind Manchester City.
