Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur played out a 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

But an incident between Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen and Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was a talking point in the the North London derby.

They exchanged physical pleasantries throughout the game, and in one incident it spilled over, as Giroud bumped Vertonghen to the ground.

As he got up, Vertonghen got a little too close for comfort, and appeared do a "Vinnie Jones" on the Frenchman - in reference to Jones' groping of Gazza's crown jewels back in the day.

To be fair, Vertonghen didn't seem to go quite that far, and in the picture he appears to be only touching his inner thigh.

However, the incident clearly went unseen by match officials who failed to punish either player for the clash in the penalty area.

There were always ding-dong battles in the derby day.
