Arsenal snatched all three points from Tottenham Hotspur in a 2-1 victory on Sunday, at Emirates Stadium. Arsenal wanted to continue adding points following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Burnley in their previous game whilst Spurs were hoping to increase their winning streak after back-to-back victories against Fulham and Burnley. As it stands, Arsenal are in 10th place, with 41 points from 28 matches, while Spurs sit in 7th, with 45 points from 28.

Spurs didn’t take long to start the rout, thanks to Erik Lamela giving Spurs the lead, 33 minutes in. However, their celebrations where kept brief, as Martin Odegaard equalised for The Gunners just before half-time. The score at half time was 1-1.

Arsenal continued to apply pressure in the second half and were rewarded, with Alexandre Lacazette finding the net at the 64 minute mark. When the final wisthle blew, the result was 2-1 to Arsenal.

As for substitutions, for Arsenal, Nicolas Pepe, Willian and Mohamed Elneny, came on for Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe and Alexandre Lacazette, Spurs brought on Erik Lamela, Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli to replace Heung Min Son, Gareth Bale and Tanguy Ndombele.

The referee booked Granit Xhaka from Arsenal. Spurs had the worst of it though, with Sergio Reguilon, Davinson Sanchez and Erik Lamela seeing yellow, and Erik Lamela (2 yellow cards) then sent off with a red.

Arsenal will next travel to West Ham, while Spurs will face Sheffield United at home.
