Mikel Arteta’s side have moved eight points clear at the top of the Premier League following a crucial victory over their rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Hugo Lloris’ own goal gave Arsenal the lead in the 14th minute before Martin Odegaard’s brilliant long-range strike doubled their advantage before the break.

Spurs improved in the second half but couldn’t find a breakthrough and Arsenal now have a commanding advantage in the Premier League title race.

Ramsdale, meanwhile, was celebrating Arsenal’s win in front of the Spurs supporters at the final whistle but as he went to collect his gloves behind the goal he was hit by a kick from one fan who walked down to the front of the stand.

‘The people I did give it to greeted it in sportsmanlike terms but one fan tried to give me a little punch on the back.

‘It is a shame as it is just a game of football at the end of the day. Both sets of players tried to bring me away but thankfully nothing too drastic happened. It is a sour taste but I’m sure we will enjoy it when we go back into the dressing room.’
