In one of the best derbies in living memory Arsenal put four goals past their local rivals, producing a deafening atmosphere inside the stadium.

There was constant singing for nearly 90 minutes as residents were disturbed on a usually peaceful Sunday.

Satchell said: “Normally this area is completely silent, particularly on Sunday afternoons and Thursday evenings.

“Many of my neighbours, and myself included, hadn’t actually realised we lived near a huge football stadium because you never hear any chanting.

“The biggest disturbance to the local area is discarded prawn sandwich wrappers that are strewn everywhere on Sunday evenings.

“Oh and sometimes there’s a few strange men shouting ‘BLUD’ into a video camera.”

Lucas Torreira put the Gunners 4-2 up with just over 10 minutes left and the roof nearly came off the place.

Satchell added that the residents thought it was some kind of rare earthquake as the Emirates shook with the unheard of cheering.
