Ozil was getting it done, delivering a prodding free-kick for Shkodran Mustafi to head in the opener. Five minutes later, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette one-two pass to double the Gunner’s lead with Alexis powering home from close range following a cut back by the £52m summer arrival from Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyon.
The two sides returned after the break and flunked two or three opportunities to end the second half on an infertile note, which means Arsenal returned to winning ways after the embarrassing thrashing at Manchester City before the international break
The build-up to the derby had focused to a great extent on the supposed power shift in North London as Mauricio Pochettino has transformed Spurs into Premier League title challengers, but their ability to take the battle to Manchester City may have been finished after a turn around at the Emirates Stadium.
