EPL: Arsenal go four points clear on top of table with 3-1 win over Tottenham

Arsenal defeated Tottenham 3-1 on Saturday to open a four-point gap at the top of the Premier League.

The Gunners came into the North London Derby having not lost at home to Spurs since 2010.

Mikel Arteta’s men’s early dominance was rewarded in the first half as Thomas Partey curled in a sublime effort from outside the box.

However, the visitors were level at the break after Gabriel Magalhaes fouled Richarlison inside the box.

Harry Kane stepped out and slammed his effort past Aaron Ramsdale.

Arsenal regained their advantage after the break after Gabriel Jesus pounced on uncertainty inside the box to poke home.

Emerson Royal was sent off before Granit Xhaka added a third.

The Gunners are four points ahead of Tottenham and Manchester City, who host Manchester United on Sunday.
