Summary of the game

It took only 12 minutes for Arsenal to put their noses in front as Bukayo Saka made a brilliant cut-back for the Englishman to side-foot his effort home to make in 1-0.

The build-up to the second goal was even more brilliant which started from the goalkeeper as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the recipient of Smith-Rowe's cross to make it 2-0.

It was Saka's turn to register his name on the scoresheet as he wriggled his way into Spurs' defence to score the third in the 34th minute.

Spurs looked more purposeful in the second half as their inspirational captain Harry Kane forced a fine save from Aaron Ramsdale and later on missed another scoring chance.

Heung-Min Son grabbed a consolation for Spurs 11 minutes from time as his shot was too hot to handle for Ramsdale to make it 3-1.

Ramsdale still had one more fantastic save to make as he acrobatically tipped Lucas Moura's dipping effort in injury time.

The win takes Arsenal to tenth on the Premier League table above their north London rivals who are in 11th position.

Brighton's Yves Bissouma linked to Arsenal

Meanwhile, had earlier reported that Yves Bissouma, who is a Malian professional footballer, could be on his way to Premier League side Arsenal in January 2022 after Gunners' Ray Parlour urged his former team to sign him.

Arsenal have not been having business rosy this season in the Premier League which has piled serious pressure on the Gunners manager, Mikel Arteta.

There are even fears among Arsenal fans that the Premier League side could fight against relegation this season due to their recent performance.
