A total of 12 fans were arrested for a range of offences including cocaine possession, fighting and racial abuse at the North London derby.

Despite the arrests police praised fans attending the Arsenal Vs Tottenham match - which the Gunners won 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Superintendent Steve Deehan, Islington Police, said: “There was no disorder or crowd issues. Everything we saw that day we would expect from any busy match.

“For a derby match the overall behaviour of both sets of fans was good.”
