‘Nobody accepts this kind of behaviour’: Emery condemns banana skin incident

The incident occurred after Aubameyang scored his first goal in Arsenal's 4-2 win at Emirates Stadium and celebrated near the travelling supporters at the Emirates Stadium.

A huge scuffle broke out on the touchline, which led to Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino sprinting to play peacemaker.

He has now scored one goal and made one assist in 14 Premier League games for the north London side so far this season.

The FA will also investigate a scuffle between the two benches after Arsenal's Stephan Lichtsteiner took exception to the celebrations of Eric Dier following Tottenham's first goal.

A brace from Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and strikes from Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira helped overhaul goals from Eric Dier and Harry Kane, who notched his eighth in eight derbies. The game was a derby through and through - two penalties, a brawl between players and a red card to top it off.

After taking the lead, Tottenham seemed comfortable enough and managed to stay in front at half time, but Emery reacted by introducing Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey at the interval and it was inspired. "We know it will be very hard in Manchester, because of their history and their present, we are going to prepare in the best way possible, to have the best performance against them. That worked for us to get the victory", he added.

Aubameyang (centre) opened the scoring with a 10th-minute penalty (Nick Potts/PA).

"In the second half, we made some changes".

"We spoke in the dressing room and we were having good minutes in the game".

""(Emery told us) to be calm, to continue playing because there were 45 more minutes left, that we keep attacking because obviously in the second half we were going to find more spaces", he told ESPN.

Arsenal jumped Tottenham into fourth place with the win.
