A Hugo Lloris own goal and Martin Odegaard’s excellent strike gave the League leaders a deserved 2-0 lead by half-time and although Spurs produced their customary second-half rally they could not find a way past the impressive Aaron Ramsdale.
Dan Kilpatrick was at White Hart Lane to rate the Spurs players...
Hugo Lloris 4
Dropped a clanger to gift Arsenal the lead. Made smart saves to deny Odegaard and Eddie Nketiah twice, but increasingly feels like a liability.
Cristian Romero 5
Booked for one of a series of silly challenges in a display lacking composure.
Eric Dier 5
Stretched and pressed by the hard-working Nketiah in an uncomfortable afternoon.
Clement Lenglet 6
Had a tricky afternoon against Bukayo Saka.
Matt Doherty 4
Forced backwards by Gabriel Martinelli and offered little threat down the right flank.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 4
Outnumbered in midfield and outclassed technically by Arsenal’s three.
Pape Matar Sarr 6
Did OK in the circumstances but this was a real baptism of fire for the youngster.
Ryan Sessegnon 5
Got in some great positions but lacked a final ball and killer instinct. Backed off Saka for the opening goal.
Dejan Kulusevski 6
Came alive in the second half and was a threat down the right, twice going close with trademark balls to the far post.
Harry Kane 6
Remains one short of Jimmy Greaves all-time goal record after forcing a sharp save from Ramsdale.
Heung-min Son 4
Should have equalised at 1-0 down but shot straight at Ramsdale. Proved a big moment in the match.
Richarlison (Doherty 70’) 6
Made a nuisance of himself and tested Ramsdale with a low effort.
Yves Bissouma (Sarr 75’) 5
Struggled with an ankle injury in the build up and unable to help turn the game.
Ivan Perisic (Sessegnon 75’) 5 His introduction felt too late and, assuming he was fit, it was a surprise he did not start.
Bryan Gil (Kulusevski 87’) N/ABen Davies (Lenglet 87’) N/A
Not used: Forster, Skipp, Sanchez, Emerson.
