Arsenal defeat Tottenham to solidify premier league top spot

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side pulled off an incredible performance to beat their North London rivals 0-2 to record their first win at Tottenham since 2014 and send them eight points clear of champions, Manchester City following their 2-1 loss to Manchester United.

The visitors took an early lead when Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris palmed Bukayo Saka’s cross into his own net after just 14 minutes. The league leaders then went on to solidify their position in the game through captain Martin Odegaard who scored his eighth goal of the season to double the lead before the interval.

Tottenham were horrible and unable to find their way back leading to frustration from the home side which showed after the final whistle. Richarlison hit out at Ramsdale before a supporter jumped onto the advertising hoardings and aimed a kick at the Arsenal keeper.

Tottenham captain Harry Kane will have to wait a little longer to become the club’s all time leading goal scorer after a frustrating evening.
