Tottenham vs Arsenal LIVE: Premier League result, final score & reaction as Son and Kane punish 10-man Gunners

Tottenham 3-0 Arsenal: Follow the reaction as Spurs thump Arsenal in a crucial battle for the top four

Conte: "We are doing a good job" in UCL race

Harry Kane struck twice as Tottenham thrashed 10-man Arsenal 3-0 following Rob Holding’s red card to boost their hopes of a top-four finish.

Antonio Conte’s side have now closed the gap on the Gunners in the Premier League to just a point with two games remaining.

Cedric Soares’ clumsy challenge on Son Heung-min handed Spurs an early gift in the shape of a penalty, with Kane calmly dispatching it into the bottom right corner.

And Holding’s elbow to Son earned him a second yellow and an early bath, with Rodrigo Bentancur’s flick-on at a corner moments later allowing Kane to crouch low and head in a second.

Kane turned provider after the restart, dragging Gabriel Magalhaes inside the box with Son stabbing home the loose ball to pull within one of Mohamed Salah in the race for the golden boot.

Follow all the reaction from the north London derby as Tottenham beat the Gunners:

36 mins: Arsenal need to get into half-time and regroup. Ben White is on the bench for the Gunners and will probably come to fill the gap in the defence.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg receives the ball and is fouled by Bukayo Saka giving the visitors a free kick to defend deep in their own half. It’s curled into the box but headed behind for a corner. The pressure is mounting on Arsenal.

RED CARD! Holding has to go!

33 mins: He’s had a nightmare against Son today. He’s too rash to commit to tackles. Eric Dier flicks the ball over the top and Holding steps across Son and elbows him to the deck. It’s a clear yellow card - Holding’s second of the game - and he has to go!

Arsenal down to 10-men.

21 mins: What drama! Dejan Kulusevski whips a cross into the box from the right wing as Son Heung-Min peels away from Rob Holding. He makes a run to the back post where Cedric Soares charges into him from behind. Cedric is nowhere near the ball and stops Son from winning the header. The referee points to the spot and VAR doesn’t overturn the decision.

12 mins: Here we go. There’s a few handbags thrown around as Rob Holding drags Son Heung-Min to ground to stop the Tottenham striker from bombing forward with the ball. The two players give each other a bit of shove then their teammates get involved before the referee calms things down. There’s a bit of an edge developing in this game.
