Spurs 2-3 Arsenal

The Gunners got away with shooting themselves in the foot twice, as they gifted Spurs two goals to wake up a game that should have been put to bed.

Raya paid the price for being too casual at the back, ending 10 hours' worth of away-game clean sheets, by gifting the ball to Romero, who made no mistake. Raya was under pressure from Richarlison at the time, so maybe he was in two minds.

Later, Rice, of all people, was spotted by VAR kicking Ben Davies, albeit by accident. The referee waved away the protests initially, as Spurs had spent a lot of the game trying to win penalties, even when there was no contact. From the resulting spot kick, Son was as clinical as you'd expect.

The result puts Arsenal five points ahead of Liverpool and four ahead of Man City, who play later and are still favourites to win the league.

Wherever the title is destined, now's still a good time to celebrate the Gunners, who once again got the better of their north London rivals in a hard-fought battle.
