Four charged over incidents at Arsenal's derby with Tottenham

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Tottenham have been charged by the Football Association after players from both sides clashed following Eric Dier's goal in the derby.

The England global was booked after celebrating Spurs players clashed with the home side's substitutes.

The Spaniard, however, believes that the club are challenging Chelsea and Tottenham for a top-four place and not Liverpool and Manchester City, who are the only two unbeaten sides remaining in the Premier League this season.

"He scored a goal as well".

Mauricio Pochettino has launched a staunch defence of Juan Foyth following the youngster's costly mistake during Tottenham's 4-2 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Foyth largely acquitted himself well considering the occasion but he was at fault for Arsenal's third goal when his attempted pass was intercepted by Aaron Ramsey in the build-up to Alexandre Lacazette's strike. "Disappointed with the result but looking forward to the next game".

"In the first 10 or 15 minutes we were not good enough". They have "won" 11 of those second halves.

Aubameyang had opened the scoring before an Eric Dier header and a Harry Kane spot-kick sent Spurs in ahead at half-time.

In the 74th minute Gunners made it 3-2 when Foyth lost the ball by the halfway line and Ramsey found Lacazette, who cut inside before his effort took a deflection off Dier and beat Hugo Lloris to find the net. They tried to be more aggressive in the second half. "In a hard moment in the first half, we kept calm".

"Another difference [is] between Liverpool and our moments [which are] not very big, but I think it's an important difference also".

Spurs had no answers to Arsenal's quick-fire third and fourth goals and in the end they only had themselves - you simply can not afford to make the mistakes they made in a game of this magnitude.
