Arsenal showed their class in beating Spurs 3-1 to win the North London derby at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Mikel Arteta's side overwhelmed the visitors with three first half goals from Emile Smith Rowe (12), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (27) and Bukayo Saka (34).

Nuno Espirito Santo's side replied with a late consolsation through Son Hueng-Min, but the match was won in the opening 45 minutes as the Gunners once again proved North London Is Red. 

Read our PLAYER RATINGS after Arsenal's outstanding performance. 

Ramsdale: 8.5 – A commanding performance from Arsenal’s undisputed No1.

Tomiyasu: 8 – Battled all game, denying opponents space and time. Must be a nightmare to play against as he never stops competing

White: 8 – Building an excellent understanding with centre-back partner Gabriel and between them kept Kane quiet

Gabriel: 8.5 - Solid and uncompromising. Exactly what Arsenal have needed at the back for a long time

Tierney: 8 - Full of energy and running in a backline that is quickly establishing itself as an effective unit

Partey: 8.5 - Immense in the heart of midfield. If he can stay fit and get a run of games under his belt he could be an absolute collussus for the club

Xhaka: 7.5 – Looked in pain as he hobbled off (substituted for Sambi Lokonga on 82)

Saka: 8.5 – An exuberant performance crowned with a goal as Arsenal’s young hero helped his side to an emphatic victory over their bitter rivals on a joyous afternoon at the Emirates (substituted for Maitland-Niles on 87)

Ødegaard: 7.5 – Elegant even in a hectic battle

Smith Rowe: 8 – Scorer of the first and thoroughly deserved his ovation on being substituted for Tavares late on after an excellent performance 

Aubameyang: 8 – Superb finish to make it 90 goals for Arsenal during his career in North London
