Football Scores: Arsenal 3-1 Spurs

Arsenal moved four points clear at the top of the table as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. After Richarlison was fouled by Gabriel Magalhaes, Harry Kane’s penalty (31) canceled out Thomas Partey’s incredible long-range goal (20), but the home team, who had been in control for much of the first half, completely took over after the interval. Hugo Lloris and Cristian Romero made a mistake that allowed Gabriel Jesus to score from close range to give Arsenal the lead (49), and Granit Xhaka added a third goal with precision (67) after Emerson Royal was sent off for a reckless foul on Gabriel Martinelli.

Mikel Arteta’s team now has seven victories in as many games so far this season, highlighting their improvement in previous months and giving them a comfortable four-point lead over second-placed Manchester City, who play Manchester United on Sunday. In contrast, Partey, whose errant long-range shooting has long been a cause of annoyance to fans, provided Arsenal’s opening goal shortly afterward. After that, Spurs made few attempts to score, failing to record a single shot on goal in the second half. Emerson’s justified dismissal for his reckless lunge at Martinelli made things even more difficult for the Spurs. The goal was subsequently secured by Xhaka, who was once again outstanding in his new, more offensive midfield position, as he misjudged Eric Dier after Martinelli’s flick and fired a low effort past Lloris.

Managers Reaction 

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta: “We took the initiative right away. We received incredible support, which energized the crowd and earned us the victory.”

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte: “We had a chance to do significantly better in the first half, in my opinion. Instead, we maintained a tight game. In the most recent pass, I believe we committed both significant and simple errors.”
