I love the North London Derby - Arteta

Arsenal moved eight points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table after securing their first away win in the north London derby since 2014. The Gunners started quickly and piled pressure on Antonio Conte’s Tottenham who are notoriously slow starters.

Bukayo Saka proved a dangerous threat on the right wing and gave Arsenal the lead when Hugo Lloris fumbled a fizzing cross over his own goal line. Mikel Arteta’s men continued to attack and after a couple of sighters Martin Odegaard sank one from range, beating Lloris with a low driving shot to the far bottom corner.

Spurs responded after the break with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Ryan Sessegnon coming close but all getting denied by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. Arsenal then settled the game down and cruised to victory in a sedate last 10 minutes.

Relive all the action from the North London derby as Tottenham host Arsenal:


Tottenham 0-1 Arsenal

17 mins: Now there’s pressure on Spurs. They need to come from behind and almost hit back straight away!

Clement Lenglet gives the ball to Eric Dier who floats a long pass up to Ryan Sessegnon making a run into the middle. He slips the ball into the box where Dejan Kulusevski lets it run to Son Heung-min.

Son shoots on the turn but Aaron Ramsdale is out quickly and closes down the effort!

GOAL! Tottenham 0-1 Arsenal (Lloris OG, 14’)⚽️

14 mins: Arsenal take the lead! Thomas Partey floats the ball over the top and sends Bukayo Saka in behind Ryan Sessegnon. Saka brings the ball under control and drives into the box.

He fizzes a cross into the six-yard and Hugo Lloris should do better. He sticks up his hands and flaps at the ball skewing it backwards into the net.

It’s poor from the goalkeeper but Arsenal have been the more attacking team and probably deserve the lead.

Tottenham 0-0 Arsenal

12 mins: Martin Odegaard takes the free kick but doesn’t trouble the goalkeeper with his effort into the box. The ball bounces behind for a goal kick.

It’s been a decent start from both teams this.

Tottenham 0-0 Arsenal

9 mins: Nketiah looks sharp for Arsenal as well. He’s moving well and trying to get into pockets of space. The striker receives the ball just outside the penalty area and gets brought down by Cristian Romero winning Arsenal a free kick.

Tottenham 0-0 Arsenal

7 mins: Save! Arsenal should be in front! The Gunners press high up the pitch and force Hugo Lloris into a poor pass to Clement Lenglet who isn’t expecting the ball.

Martin Odegaard nicks the ball inside the box and sends it to Gabriel Martinelli who dinks one over the top to Eddie Nketiah. Nketiah takes a touch before shooting which allows Lloris to recover and get behind the ball denying the Gunners the opener!

Tottenham 0-0 Arsenal

6 mins: Harry Kane seems up for this one. Tottenham are forced to defend deep as both Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli attempt to weave their way into the Spurs box.

The home side defend both attacks and slip the ball up to Kane who tricks his way through three red shirts before sending Ryan Sessegnon flying into space on the left.

The full-back is given time on the ball but his cross is poor again and Gabriel smokes it out for a throw in. Brilliant hold-up play from Kane there though.

Tottenham 0-0 Arsenal

3 mins: That’s nice from Son Heung-min who drops deeper and turns the ball around the corner to free Ryan Sessegnon in behind Ben White.

The full-back drives up towards the box but has his attempted cross blocked on the edge of the area.

Kick off: Tottenham 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal get the ball rolling at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. It’s floated out to the right where Ben White leaps to win the ball but is beaten to it by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Spurs switch the ball over to the opposite side of the pitch and win themselves a throw in.

Tottenham vs Arsenal

Here come the teams.

Hugo Lloris and Martin Odegaard lead their respective teams out onto the pitch at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Spurs haven’t been the best when starting games but they tend to grow into matches and score in the second half.

Arsenal will come flying out of the blocks, if they score early it could be a long afternoon for Tottenham.

Tottenham vs Arsenal

Six of Arsenal’s eight top-flight clean sheets this season have come away from home but they have not beaten Spurs away from home since 2014 when Mikel Arteta was the captain.

Is today the day they break that duck?
