Tottenham Hotspur entertained Arsenal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to secure a win in the London derby. Spurs made an excellent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 22nd minute courtesy of Harry Kane’s goal from the penalty spot. Antonio Conte’s men found themselves at a numerical advantage just 11 minutes later when Rob Holding was sent off by the referee. Kane doubled Tottenham’s advantage just a few moments later as the home side went into the half-time break with a healthy 2-0 lead.

Heung-min Son made the points secure in the 47th minute when he scored with a good finish. Spurs controlled the remainder of the game well and earned an easy 3-0 win at home.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player performed during the match against the Gunners.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 8/10

The French keeper made a few solid saves at the back and secured a well-deserved clean sheet in front of the Tottenham fans.

CB: Davinson Sanchez – 7/10

Sanchez dealt with the danger when needed and made one key chance in the final third.

CB: Eric Dier – 7/10

The English talent cleared his lines when Arsenal were on the front foot and made a couple of important interceptions inside his half.

CB: Ben Davies – 7/10

He performed his defensive duties well and made one good chance in the final third.
