Spurs 0-2 Arsenal (half time)

The Gunners went in at the break two goals to the good, but it could have been even more had Partey's howitzer hit the inside of the post instead of the outside.

Nevertheless, Arsenal took the lead in unusual style, with Saka's innocuous shot being smuggled into his own net by Lloris.

However, the French keeper could do nothing about Odegaard's long-range bobbling shot that doubled Arsenal's league.

It was no more than Arsenal deserved, as they were on the front foot for most of the half.

Kane had a header saved, near the end of the half and Son had a shot on target but, aside from that, Spurs offered little.

Now Arsenal have to beware Tottenham's ability to bounce back after the interval.

The Gunners will hope that Saka continues to run Spurs ragged as, if Tottenham can't stop him, there's unlikely to be a way back for the hosts.
