TOTTENHAM failed to best 10-man Arsenal and were held to a goalless draw in Sunday's spirited north London derby at White Hart Lane.
The lively stalemate possessed everything but a goal in a pulsating encounter that saw Emmanuel Eboue red-carded and Emmanuel Adebayor forced off the field through injury.

The equilibrium changed in the 36th minute when Eboue, who had earlier been yellow-carded for dissent, received his second yellow card and was sent off after tangling with Luca Modric.
Harry Rednapp's outfit sought immediately to profit from their numerical advantage but the visitors, employing Nicklas Bendtner - who had earlier replaced Adebayor - as sole striker, kept Spurs at bay while creating chances of their own.
The rivals both had late opportunities to snatch victory but were ultimately forced to settle for a point apiece.
