Full-time: Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal


Pochettino makes a final change, replacing Alli with Sissoko.


Pochettino makes a conventional change with Walker replacing Trippier for the last few moments.


Ramsey jinks inside and feeds Walcott, but his effort is tame and grasped easily by Lloris. Arsenal heading for their fifth away defeat in six games, and it's rather deserved.


Dembele's first real involvement is to foul the rather ineffective Welbeck. Ramsey tries to set the forward away but his ball is cut out supremely well by Lloris.


Changes for both teams as Son is replaced by Dembele. Walcott enters the fray, too, with Giroud the one to make way.


Wanyama drives forward and does well to find Kane but the forward is stifled by Cech. The Czech is then on hand to make a superb stop from Alderweireld from a corner. If not for him, Spurs could be out of sight.


Wenger makes his second change as Hector Bellerin replaces the penalty-conceding Gabriel.


A bit of the inevitable handbags now. Alderweireld and Welbeck square up after the latter pokes an effort at goal. He seemed to kick Lloris in frustration, much to the Belgian's chagrin.


Giroud is the next to be booked after clamouring viciously on Trippier. Frustration boiling over for the ailing Gunners.


Gabriel picks up a yellow card after scything down Alli, but Wanyama escapes punishment for a rake down Sanchez's Achilles.

Kane seeks retribution on the Brazilian and catches him with an elbow as they contest an aerial duel. The scourge of Arsenal picks up a booking, but he won't care a bit.


Alderweireld comes close to making it 3-0 but his header at the far post is blocked well by Gibbs. His centre-back partner Vertonghen then tests Cech with a fine left-footed effort, which he can only palm away.


Welbeck replaces Xhaka has Wenger seeks to respond instantly. His first involvement is to give away a foul for a tug on Davies. 25 minutes left to play.


Xhaka picks out Sanchez expertly. The Chilean chests the ball down and eventually forces Lloris into a save. Still 2-0, Wenger set to throw on Welbeck.



Arsenal try to respond and pounce on a Dier error but Giroud doesn't trouble Lloris. The Gunners are fighting back, winning a corner off Trippier.


Talk about quickfire!

A simply marvellous penalty from Kane, who tucks the ball expertly inside the post. Cech was helpess.


GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal (Kane)


Gabriel kicks Kane's shin and gives away a penalty mindlessly. The England international to take.




Alli charges though the Arsenal and finds Eriksen, who dances through a number of challenges and shoots at Cech. The Czech blocks, but only into the path of Alli, who stretches to knock in the opener.


GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Arsenal (Alli)


Kane pounces on a Gabriel error and forces Cech into making another save. Arsenal hit back through the Ox, who forces a corner, but Giroud's volley does not test his compatriot Lloris.


Superb work from Ozil and Sanchez almost carves out an opening, but Tottenham snuff out the danger.

At the other end Kane embarks on a footrace with Monreal, but the Spaniard wins out.
