Harry Kane opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Rob Holding picked up a second yellow card for elbowing Son Heung-min and was given his marching orders.

Kane quickly made it 2-0 to Spurs before the break and the home side maintained their intensity in the second half with Son finding the back of the net to put Tottenham three ahead.

But the Gunners manager would have been buoyed by the chants coming from the travelling Arsenal fans inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Despite the scoreline against their bitter rivals, Arsenal fans could be heard singing: "We've got Super Mik Arteta."

It's not a huge gesture on the surface, but it speaks volumes for what Arteta has done at Arsenal since taking the reins from Unai Emery and restoring a level of harmony.

Things haven't always been a walk in the park for the Spaniard, but the Gunners are now in a great position to qualify for the Champions League next season and fans are pleased with the football being served up.
