FULL TIME: Arsenal 3-1 Spurs. Nuno and his bomber jacket have lost. Arteta and his zip-up top have won. The home side were far better than their opponents and after the first half, where Spurs barely showed up, they had little to do but the basics. Spurs are in trouble now. Harry Kane was dreadful, and that is more worrying than Nuno for now.
A desperate, urgent Moura fouls Odegaard near the Arsenal box and that should be that.
- Yellow cardMartin ØdegaardArsenal
Odegaard also on the naughty step.
- Yellow cardAlbert Sambi LokongaArsenal
Moura punts one from distance but Ramsdale pushes the ball onto the bar for a corner. Nothing from it.
There will be five more minutes of this. Or that's what we're told.
Arsenal are now playing for time in the corner when they can.
Some urgency from Spurs now, who have just clocked they're playing football.

Xhaka is subbed off for Lokonga.
- GoalHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Arsenal 3-1 Tottenham. Son scores - Kane waits for a cross on the left from Reguilon, but Son gets there first and sends a shot that Ramsdale can only palm into the net. Earlier in the move, Moura and Xhaka had collided, after Partey clipped Moura and sent him into the Swiss. Xhaka remains down with a knee problem.
Daniel Ek is in the crowd.
Saka fizzes in a boucing shot from distance that is beaten out by Lloris. Arsenal have this won so they don't need to do much from here.
- OffTanguy N'DombeleTottenham Hotspur
- OnBryan GilTottenham Hotspur
Gil on for Ndombele.
- Yellow cardOliver SkippTottenham Hotspur
Skipp booked for a foul which... I missed, but can have a guess.
Another foul from Xhaka, catching Ndombele from behind and slapping him on the head. Pathetic stuff from him really, and he escapes a booking. Consistent, rank incompetence or inability from Pawson here of late.
Another chance for Kane! He curves his run, brings down the ball with the sole of his foot, and flicks it just wide of goal.
Ramsdale beats away an early strike from Kane, and he gets it away in time for it to be cleared for a corner.
Half an hour of normal time remaining and Spurs have a free kick on the left wing. Son takes, whipping the ball into the box, and Ramsdale can claim it easily.
That looks very silly from the ref. Kane looks to be caught by White in the box and he waves the appeals away. I mean, if it isn't reviewed then VAR might as well be abolished for all the good it does. At the other end Augameyang is - fairly - clattered.
Saka tricks his way into finding Smith Rowe, the ball is worked to Aubameyang, and suddenly there are huge appeals for a foul from Sanchez on Gabriel as he nudges him to the ground - nothing given.
Spurs look fundamentally done in.

HALF TIME. See you in 15 minutes.
We're into the first of two indicated minutes of added time. Some fans from the away end are already leaving.
Arsenal are happy to let Spurs have the ball in midfield, with the half running out. A late Spurs goal would change things, but it doesn't feel likely.
Here's the third goal.
Spurs have no chance if they don't rouse themselves. They probably don't stand a chance even if they do. On the sidelines, Arteta drinks from a minibar-size water bottle.
Kane gets his first real chance of the match when he meets a corner just in front of the penalty spot, and he heads just wide.
- GoalBukayo SakaArsenal
GOAL! Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham. Saka scores - Kane, who's struggling today, shifts the ball from under his feet and falls over as he does so... Arsenal race up the other end of the pitch and while it seems as if the danger has passed when he slides in to tackle Saka in the box, the ball stays with the youngster, and he takes a touch and clips the ball into the far corner.
Arsenal are tweeting while they are winning.
In the build-up to that second goal, Xhaka might have caught Hojbjerg enough to warrant a foul from the ref, so they are a touch fortunate the ref did not intervene.
- GoalPierre-Emerick AubameyangArsenal
GOAL! Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham. Aubameyang scores - Smith Rowe is released down the inside left with a greate pass around the corner from the striker, and he strides forward into space and then into the area. He squares the ball for Aubameyang, who had kept pace with his teammate and he slots home.
Xhaka catches Moura in midfield. It's a pretty heavy challenge and sore one for the forward. He's fine to keep going.
Arsenal are thoroughly in control now.
Son jinks outside his marker to open up a tight angle and space, and he fizzes in a shot that Ramsdale palms up and away.
Tierney clears the ball and twists his knee as he does so. He's back up. but that's one to keep an eye on.
Here's the goal.
From 25 yards out, a rising shot from Aubameyang sails just over the bar.
Odegaard swaps passes with Saka after Aubameyang's cross isn't properly cleared. Saka tees up Partey outside the box, and Lloris leaps to his left to palm the ball behind.
Spurs are struggling for fluency in attack at the moment, while Arsenal are pressing when they find space until Spurs close them down.
- GoalEmile Smith RoweArsenal
GOAL! Arsenal 1-0 Tottenham. Smith Rowe scores - Odegaard finds Saka on the inside right of the box. The winger looks up, clocks Smith Rowe's run towards the six-yard box and he sidefoots a shot past Lloris who had barely any chance to react.
Tomiyasu is on hand to head clear a long ball twice in quick succession.
Tierney slips in Aubameyang at the near post and he fires in a low shot to the near side of Lloris who palms it wide. He, like Son, was offside too.
Alli flicks the ball on to Son, and the forward drills a shot wide of goal, but he was probably offside anyway.
Moura the latest to earn a foul, this time from Xhaka in the middle in the pitch.
Spurs are chased back to Lloris after the 'keeper first finds Son on the wing, and Reguilon wins a free kick.
Son almost skips into the box but is tackled, and Saka finds Partey for a calm few seconds of Arsenal possession.
- 1st Half
The match gets underway after a round of applause for players taking the knee.
Spurs come out to plenty of boos. The Arsenal team get cheers. The duality of man.
Lucas Moura is back.
15 minutes to go and I'd just like to report that I am also out of contention for the game here, as I have shin splints.
Massive tangentially-related Arsenal news.
Here are the latest(ish) transfer rumours.
Similarly, Arsenal could theoretically could go ninth. They won't.
A very heavy win for Spurs would take them into sixth, so let's be realistic and say a win for Spurs will take them into seventh. Europa League, baby!
And from that Spurs lot.
