Arsenal’s revival assembled pace as Tottenham’s new decay proceeded in an engaging north London derby at Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners set up the table after three games while Spurs were top under new chief Nuno Espirito Santo – how things have changed as an uncontrolled Arsenal destroyed their shambolic opponents in a splendid first half.
Emile Smith Rowe began the festivals for the Arsenal fans when he showed up plain to clear home Bukayo Saka’s cross following 12 minutes before the scorer turned supplier as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the second halfway through the half.
Spikes were delivering a frightfulness show and nothing summarized it better than Arsenal’s third following 34 minutes. Harry Kane fell over the ball in a Spurs assault then, at that point, missed two handles on Saka as he hustled once again into his own punishment region to attempt to save the circumstance. Saka intensified the distress with a quiet completion.
Definitely, Spurs worked on after the break, Kane bringing a decent save from Aaron Ramsdale and squandering a decent possibility, before Son Heung-min pulled one back.
Ramsdale saved Arsenal any late uneasiness with one more wonderful quit, contacting Lucas Moura’s shot on to the bar as Mikel Arteta’s side finished off a luxuriously merited success.
