Tottenham 0-2 Arsenal: Gunner go 8-points clear after victory over Spurs, Odegaard on target >>>

Spurs fell 0-2 to Arsenal at home with the Gunners going 8-points clear at the summit. It took the league leaders 14 minutes to get in front after Saka’s cross was misread leading to an own goal by Hugo Lloris.

Captain Odegaard doubled the lead for the Gunners in the 36th minute. Spurs huffed and puffed but they could not turn the tides. Arteta’s men are now 8 points ahead of Manchester City on the League table.

Kick Off

And so it begins!

Starting XI

Harry Kane is targeting another landmark day in the north London derby. The Tottenham striker is one goal away from matching Jimmy Greaves’s all-time Spurs record of 266 goals and is also just two shy of 200 Premier League goals.

With 14 goals in 18 games against Arsenal, Kane is the record scorer in north London derbies, and it would be extra special to pass those two milestones this weekend. But standing in his way will be the best Arsenal centre-back pairing he has faced since his first game against the Gunners, in 2015.

Gabriel and William Saliba have developed into a brilliant partnership, helping create a solid foundation for their title challenge. The pair have started every Premier League game this season at the heart of a defence that has conceded just 14 goals in 17 matches.
