London Derby End Up in Stalemate

Eboue can't believe it after he was sent off.

The spoils are shared in North London derby as both Spurs and Arsenal failed to break the deadlock at White Hart Lane. Spurs should have won as Arsenal reduced to 10 man, after the referee sent off Eboue in the first half. A moment of confusion when referee suprisingly red carded Eboue, after an off the ball incidents with Luka Modric.

Arsenal also loss their influential striker, Adebayor due to hamstring injury. Spurs should have won, but failed to put the ball into the back of the nets. Spurs almost came up in several occasion, mainly through Robbie Keane and Aaron Lennon, but Almunia stand firms in his goal poast. Keane's header almost gave Spurs the lead, but inches wide.

Arsenal managed to withhelds against a waves of Spurs attack. A valuable point for the misfiring Gunners, but their title hopes seems to be drifted. The derby was Robbie Keane's debut after unsuccesful short spell at Anfield. Arshavin only warmed up the bench as he was unfit to play.

Giggs send United back to the top.

Meanwhile at Upton Park, United pull off a narrow win against West Ham. United's only goals came through Ryan Giggs on 62 minutes. Another 1 - o wins for United enough to eased them to the pinnacle of English Premier League. United currently sit 2 point ahead of rivals, Liverpool. It was 13th consecutives clean sheet wins for United in the League.
