Heung-min Son added late consolation for Spurs but the outcome was never in doubt as Arsenal secured local bragging rights.
Dan Kilpatrick was in the Emirates to lead Arsenal players …
Well saved from Son, Harry Kane and Lucas Moura, and started the movement for Arsenal’s second goal playing. I couldn’t prevent Son’s late strike.
Won the battle with Son as Spurs unsuccessfully targeted him in the air, but allowed Kane to get behind him for Spurs best chance.
Lucky to have escaped a penalty for a kick on Kane, but otherwise he defended himself well.
Solid throughout and helped Arsenal play impressively from behind.
Made good progress from left-back, creating an early chance for Aubameyang, and kept Lucas silent.
Added bite to Arsenal’s midfield, tackling challenges and keeping the ball moving. Injured late and expelled.
His energy and technical quality helped Arsenal dominate the midfield and overtake rivals, but he lost Son for Spurs’ goal.
Set up Arsenal’s first and scored his third in his most impressive performance since Euro.
Ran the show with a sublime performance, albeit against a vacant Spurs midfielder. Made the first two goals.
Took his goal well in an excellent overall performance from the left of the top four.

Finished brilliantly and came close twice in display of a center-forward full of energy and threat.
