Switzerland national team skipper Granit Xhaka was one of the best players for Arsenal as they claimed North London Derby spoils at the weekend at the expense of Jose Mourinho and his Tottenham Hotspur team. Xhaka was a dominant force for the Gunners in midfield as he helped his team to a 2-1 home win over Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby. The Switzerland international went a long way to make up for his mistake in the penultimate league game at Burnley. Granit Xhaka came in for a lot of criticisms after his error led to dropped points against the Clarets. At the point of his mistake, the Gunners were 1-0 ahead through an early goal from club skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang. Arsenal were on their way to a half-time lead before the mistake from the Switzerland player. The Switzerland national team captain had his pass intercepted by Burnleystriker Chris Woods and into the back of the net for the Clarets’ equaliser.Xhaka was able to redeem himself with an assured performance against Spurs in the derby on Sunday evening. He was one of the best players on the pitch as Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette scored the winning goal in the second half to secure the slender win for his team against a Spurs team that finished the game with ten men after Erik Lamela was sent off for two yellow cards. His second yellow card was for the hand in the face of Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney. Lamela has come on as a first half substitute for the injured Son Heung-Min, who went off with a hamstring problem.Lamela went from hero to villain during the derby game with his red card. He was the recipient of a wonder goal in the first half before Martin Odegaardequalised for Arsenal on the stroke of half-time after good work from Tierney thus paving the way for the winner from Lacazette from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez in the box.
