The onslaught continued as Cech beat away Kieran Trippier's half-volley at the far post, and as full-time approached, Lamela dragged an effort wide from an angle after again being found free behind a lacklustre Arsenal defence. That maybe would not have been enough, but would be better than being 1-0 down.

Wenger dismantled them - and could not rebuild them.

Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign. He is also behind the times.

As seen last week at Anfield, it was Tottenham's second half performance that earned them the points.

It has taken 22 years but Spurs are in the ascendancy now. It was a peek into what Arsenal's newly glossed over side could achieve when they are hardly tested defensively.

"They have to be much, much stronger away from home".

"Spurs came at them with a higher tempo and were simply too good".

Wenger made a double substitution with 25 minutes left to play as Mkhitaryan made way for Alexandre Lacazette while Mohamed Elneny came out for Alex Iwobi.

Wenger admitted France worldwide Lacazette was struggling for confidence at the moment but said: "He has gone through hard periods before".

First, Dhawan was caught at mid-off off Morne Morkel (1/55) and six balls later, Ajinkya Rahane (8) holed out to deep square leg. He bowled quite wide and got a lot of turn and bounce, that was my gutsy shot at that moment and I pulled it off", said Klaasen.

Canada has not had an embassy in Iran since 2012, and the two countries have no formal diplomatic ties. Why doesn´t the judiciary give out information in time and transparently?" he wrote.

"He works hard in training, works on his finishing. Only I know that a striker like him in England, in Germany, in Spain, he is top", he said.

Aubameyang is ineligible to play in Europe because his former club, Dortmund, are in the same competition.

But Owen says as an overall package, no-one matches the Tottenham striker on current form.

Wenger appeared frustrated that Kane escaped punishment for a push on Laurent Koscielny when he headed in Ben Davies' cross, but he later conceded the goal was fair. Harry Kane is the man on the score sheet.

"That makes it much more hard now but we have to fight for as long as we have a mathematical chance".

The significance of this game was beyond the two sides' old rivalry as both of them desperately aim for a top four finish.

"It will be an incredible game and we are so excited because we know what it means to play the derby". But after three points!

The result leaves Arsenal in sixth - seven points behind their rivals - with the Europa League now looking like their surest route back to the Champions League next season.
