Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur – Football Match Report – October 1, 2022



Arsenal claimed an emphatic 3-1 victory over north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates on Saturday to remain top of the Premier League.

Thomas Partey opened the scoring with a superb strike from the edge of the 18-yard-box, but Spurs striker Harry Kane hit back from the penalty spot to leave the score level after an end-to-end first half.

But Spurs looked sluggish after the restart, and it did not take Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus long to send the hosts back in front. The Brazil international punished a mistake from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who parried a strike from Bukayo Saka only to see it deflect off defender Cristian Romero and roll under his body, allowing Jesus to pounce for an easy finish.

Spurs’ task was made harder shortly after the hour mark when defender Emerson Royal was handed a straight red card for a reckless tackle on Gabriel Martinelli.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka then extended Arsenal’s lead with a powerful finish that past a helpless Lloris.
