Arsenal beat Tottenham to continue title statement

As Harry Kane surpasses Thierry Henry London goal derbies record

Arsenal beat Tottenham 3-1 in thr North London derby to continue their title statement.

The league leaders took the lead 20 minutes into the game after a long range effort from Thomas Partey beats Hugo Lloris in goal for Tottenham.

Harry Kane pulled back for Tottenham with a striker from the spot kick to become the top scorer in Premier League London derbies.

The English striker surpassed Thierry Henry as the highest-scoring player in Premier League London derbies with 44 goals.

It was Kane 14th league goals against Arsenal.

Both team went into the half time break with a goal each.

Arsenal started the second half the brighter side and were rewarded when Jesus bundled home following Hugo Lloris’ mistake, and Tottenham’s hopes of a comeback were dashed when Emerson Royal was sent off.

Xhaka then drilled into the bottom-right corner as Mikel Arteta’s rampant side moved four points clear of Manchester City and consigned their fierce rivals to a first Premier League defeat of the season.

The win means Arsenal remain top, four points ahead of second placed Manchester City who play against Manchester United on Sunday.
