Arsenal beat Tottenham to continue title statement


Arsenal beat Tottenham 3-1 in thr North London derby to continue their title statement.

The league leaders took the lead 20 minutes into the game after a long range effort from Thomas Partey beats Hugo Lloris in goal for Tottenham.

Harry Kane pulled back for Tottenham with a striker from the spot kick to become the top scorer in Premier League London derbies.
