Tottenham, who enjoyed a performance for the ages against a forlorn and befuddled Arsenal side, won 3-0 to put the pressure on their north London rivals with two matches to play.
It was Spurs biggest win over their rivals since 1983. How sweet it was.
Spurs dominated every facet and were in dreamland for most of the evening. Rob Holding was sent off, giving Tottenham an additional advantage that they probably didn’t require. It was nice to have, though.
Harry Kane scored a brace and Son Heung-min bagged another, finding himself just one goal behind Mo Salah in the race for the Golden Boot.
What a night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the first time supporters have seen their beloved team play Arsenal at the new ground.
Here’s the player ratings from a truly fantastic display.
Hugo Lloris 7/10
Hugo commanded his box well and took control of most Arsenal aerial balls. He had one uncertain moment but was otherwise sure-handed, if not too busy.
Davinson Sanchez 8/10
Many, including myself, were gravely concerned when news spread of Cristian Romero missing out through injury. Thankfully, Davinson Sanchez stepped in and didn’t miss a beat. Of course his job was made immeasurably easier when Holding saw red. Nonetheless, Sanchez did the job asked of him by the gaffer masterfully.
Eric Dier 8/10
Eric Dier marshalled the backline expertly and with poise. He had an easier go of it than he would have thought pre-game, but handled the workload with aplomb. Dier looked vulnerable sparingly and had the backline organized throughout.
Ben Davies 9/10
Ben Davies stepped up to the occasion and then some. He was sturdy defensively, made the right decisions and also prevented Bukayo Saka from scoring when he lashed away a goal-bound shot. Outstanding from the Welshman.
