- Arsene Wenger's 700th Premier League game in charge of Arsenal
- Mesut Ozil has scored three times in three games
- Harry Kane scores his 21st and 22nd goal in all competitions
- Tottenham leapfrog Arsenal in fourth
However, for a long time it looked as though Arsenal were in control of the match. The Gunners took an early lead through Mesut Ozil. It was ironically created by Danny Welbeck (who Arsenal fans protested against starting the game).
Welbeck made Arsenal fans eat their words by outpacing Danny Rose down the right wing and pulling the ball back to Olivier Giroud who diverted the ball into the path of Ozil to finish with one touch.
Ryan Mason had an effort on goal himself from long range, although David Ospina was able to clutch it into his chest.
By the time Christian Eriksen ballooned a shot over the bar from distance after cutting in on the left, it looked as though Tottenham had run out of ideas.
That said, there were glimpses of what was to come as twice Harry Kane made David Ospina sweat. The first occasion was when Ospina failed to gather a cross and nearly dropped the ball at the feet of Kane's. The second occasion was when Kane charged at Ospina and forced the Arsenal goalkeeper into a hurried clearance.
The second half began in the same fashion until the 57th minute. A corner whipped in was met by Dembele and Ospina flapped at it leaving Kane with a tap-in at the back post.
That seemed to wake up Arsenal who had a chance through Laurent Koscienly, although his header was smothered by Hugo Lloris.
Fan favourites like Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky were introduced as a means to spark a revival but by and large Tottenham were the better of the two. In the 71st minute Bentaleb struck a long range shot that Ospina parried into Kane's path, luckily for the keeper Kane was offside.
The offside trap could not save Ospina 15 minutes later as Bentaleb cross from the left for Kane who leapt above his marker to nudge in the winner.
