Kane, Wright and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal beat Spurs
Harry Kane and Ian Wright lead the Twitter action around Arsenal's 2-1 win at Spurs
Mathieu Flamini’s double goal haul gave Arsenal the north London bragging rights after a hard-fought victory at Tottenham Hotspurs in the Carling Cup third round.
The French midfielder opened the scoring midway through the first half as he reacted quickest to Michel Vorm’s tame parry.
A Calum Chambers own goal brought the hosts back into the game, before Flamini’s stunning volley from the edge of the box with just over 10 minutes remaining.
Here’s what social media made of the match between the juggernauts of north London.
Harry Kane may have lost his scoring boots but does his best to rally the troops before the season’s first north London derby:

A bare chested Flamini strides down the tunnel after winning the North London derby. The most unlikely of goal scoring heroes for Arsenal!
