Wimmer earns praise for quality of his header in north London derby


Unfortunate Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer marked his first Premier League start of the campaign with an own goal in Sunday's 1-1 draw with rivals Arsenal.

But despite putting the ball in the wrong net, the Austrian earned plaudits from Twitter users for the quality of his 42nd-minute header.

Naturally, many of those praising Wimmer's finish were Arsenal fans...

Fans of other clubs were also impressed.

Wimmer did not let his first-half own goal affect him, however, and impressed many Spurs fans with his overall performance.
