Arsenal 3 Tottenham 1: Gunners Hit Hotspurs at Emirates

Arsenal’s revival gathered pace as they beat London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, September 26, 2021.

Smith-Rowe put the Gunners ahead in the 12th minute with a Bukayo Saka cross.

The lead was doubled by Arsenal captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang in the 27th minute.

The Gunners scored the third goal scored just 8 minutes later as Saka gave Arsenal a 3-goals cushion.

Tottenham managed to get a goal back in the 79th minute as Son Heung-Min scored but it was too little too late for  men.

Tottenham has now lost three in a row in the league after opening with three straight wins

The opener came in the 12th minute after Martin Odegaard spread the ball wide to Saka, whose low cross reached the unmarked Smith Rowe to sweep into the net.

Arsenal pounced on the counterattack in the 27th with Smith Rowe squaring for Aubameyang to add the second goal.

Thomas Partey stole the ball off England captain Harry Kane and Arsenal again broke behind the Spurs defense with three passes. Smith Rowe found Saka, who ran into the box and was challenged well by a backtracking Kane, only for the loose ball to roll back into the path of his England teammate. Saka then finished low past French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham gave itself a chance to make an unexpected comeback as Son Heung-min turned in a cross from Sergio Reguilon in the 79th. But there would be no recovery for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
