Arsenal tore Tottenham apart with three goals in the opening 34 minutes in a 3-1 victory on Sunday.
The goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka completed a third successive league win for Arsenal which lost its opening three games.
The opener came in the 12th minute after Martin Odegaard spread the ball wide to Saka, whose low cross reached the unmarked Smith Rowe to sweep into the net.
Arsenal pounced on the counter-attack in the 27th minute with Smith Rowe squaring for Aubameyang to add the second goal.
Things would get even better for the Gunners as Saka got on the scoresheet in the 34th minute.
Tottenham gave itself a chance to make an unexpected comeback as Son Heung-min turned in a cross from Sergio Reguilon in the 79th minute. However, there was no chance for Nuno Santo’s side to recover.
Tottenham has now lost three games in a row in the league after opening with a trio of successes.
Arsenal extends its early-season recovery and completes a miserable September with a win.
