After a promising start, Arsenal collapsed in the first half, conceding a penalty, had a player sent off, and falling behind 2-0 in the space of 15 minutes.

Spurs were in full command of the encounter after Rob Holding’s red card and Harry Kane’s brace in a tense North London derby.

The Gunners had the better start, but Spurs managed to build momentum and took the lead in 22nd minute with a Kane penalty.

Cedric shoved Son over a Kulusevski cross, and referee Tierney immediately signalled to the spot.

The victory and three points puts Tottenham just a point behind the Gunners with two games remaining.

As they aim to keep the pressure on Arsenal, they will host Burnley next before closing with an away encounter at bottom Norwich.
