The build-up to the second goal was even more brilliant which started from the goalkeeper as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the recipient of Smith-Rowe's cross to make it 2-0.

It was Saka's turn to register his name on the scoresheet as he wriggled his way into Spurs' defence to score the third in the 34th minute.

Spurs looked more purposeful in the second half as their inspirational captain Harry Kane forced a fine save from Aaron Ramsdale and later on missed another scoring chance.

Heung-Min Son grabbed a consolation for Spurs 11 minutes from time as his shot was too hot to handle for Ramsdale to make it 3-1.

Ramsdale still had one more fantastic save to make as he acrobatically tipped Lucas Moura's dipping effort in injury time.

The Gunners were in cruise control of the game as they were awarded a penalty after Gabriel Martinelli was brought down in the box.

Captain of the night Alexander Lacazette sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to make it 1-0 after just 11 minutes.

Mikel Arteta's men had to wait until the 77th minute to double the advantage through substitute Emile Smith-Rowie who applied the finish from a Lacazette's assist to make it 2-0.
