Spurs 0-2 Arsenal (full time)

Arsenal have gone eight points clear at the top of the table with a well-deserved victory at Spurs.

Richarlison, a Spurs sub, seemed intent on causing trouble at the end of the game, so much so that Ramsdale was in the middle of the some unsavoury, chaotic scenes at the end. Before that, Richarlison bumped into Gabriel, who was booked.

Spurs did manage a few shots and Kulusevski was particularly dangerous, but Ramsdale and the boys at the back snuffed them out.

Eight years is a long time between victories at Spurs, but well worth waiting for.

Ramsdale 8 - impeccable
White 8 - solid
Saliba 7 - quiet, but so was Kane
Gabriel 7 - good, but booked
Zinchenko 8 - calm at all times
Saka 9 - a masterclass in the first half
Odegaard 9 - great goal and a captain's performance
Partey 8 - dominant in the first half
Xhaka 8 - tidied up, when he had to
Martinelli 7 - a cheeky showboating moment upset sensitive Spurs
Nketiah 8 - tirelessly harried Spurs and unlucky not to score
Tierney 6 - quiet
Smith-Rowe - final minutes only
Vieira - final minutes only
