The Gunners were totally dominant from the on-set and bagged both the goals in either half of the match. Santi Cazorla opened the scoring for the Gunners, after young Serge Gnarby found him in the box with a delightful pass – the Spaniard slotted home with great aplomb.
Tomas Rosicky added another in the second half. The 33-year-old scurried into the penalty box, after pouncing on a mistake from Spurs defender Danny Rose and kept his composure to score his first goal of the season.
The Czech midfielder said after the match:
“When I play in the [No 10] position, I try to put the opponents under pressure and it paid off for me this time. I went there and took the ball and went through on goal.
“It’s my first of the season and against our main rivals so it’s good.”
