Arsenal see off Tottenham in North London derby

Arsenal have strengthened their position at the summit of the Premier League table by beating their arch North London rivals 3-1 at the Emirates.

Goals from Partey, Jesus and Xhaka were enough to condemn Tottenham to their first defeat of the Premier League season.

Emerson Royal was sent off late in the game for a dangerous tackle on his fellow countryman, Gabriel Martinelli.

Arsenal head into next week’s crunch tie against Liverpool comfortably at the top of the Premier League table.
