Hotspurs Surprise Win - Now 5th in Premier League

Tottenham Hotspurs won a surprising 3-2 victory at Arsenal, in their first away defeat against their rivals in 17 years. The win sends Spurs to fifth place in the Premier League, missing out on fourth place only on a goal difference.

After going in at half-time 2-0 down Tottenham looked dead and buried but an upbeat second-half performance by the Spurs turned the game around,  giving Arsenal their third home loss of the season and denied them top spot in the Premier League.

Rafael Van der Vaart delivered a goal and two assists in the spectacular win.

With just four minutes remaining in the match Younes Kaboul headed in the winner from a Van der Vaart cross.

Arsenal had led through goals from Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh as they controlled the first-half.
