Arsenal faced off against Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to secure a good result on the road. The Gunners made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 14th minute when Hugo Lloris scored an unfortunate own goal. Martin Odegaard scored a superb goal in the 36th minute to double his team’s lead as Arsenal went into the half-time break 2-0 up on the scoreline.
