With Serge Aurier on his back and Davinson Sánchez and Harry Winks converging, Alexandre Lacazette took two touches into space before rifling a 20-yard effort beyond Hugo Lloris to open the scoring in Sunday’s North London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

The natural sound — enjoyed through the NBC Sports website stream — perfectly captured the violence of Lacazette’s punishing finish.
