What a magnificent way to be welcomed back into the stadium for the two thousand Spurs fans.

A day your team plays bitter rival and put in a staunch display to go top of the log and away with all three points from the derby.

Arsenal started the game with great momentum, coming back from a victory in their Europa League clash against Rapid Wien.

Arsenal saw loads of the possession during the game but were unable to pull through the rigid Spurs side that where ardent to go away with all three points following goals from Son Heung Min and strike partner Harry Kane.

Jose Mourinho’s side continue with their elegant and majestic start to the campaign and retain their spot on the top of the log after eleven games thanks to the two first half goals in the 13th minute and just before the break and superb counter attacking displays, finesse defending and brilliant goal keeping.

Spurs continuous show of character has seen them lost to only Everton, their first game of the season.

The five key points from the game
1. Jose Mourinho’s class shows yet again: a fortnight ago, Mourinho showcased his class as one of the best coaches in the planet when he conspired to deliver victory over Manchester City.

Today, he dished out another tactical masterclass to ensure his team claim the bragging rights of the north London derby.

2. Spurs continue to make their intentions clear: this is the tenth game without defeat in the league.

In the space of ten games, Spurs have come up against both Manchester sides, Chelsea and Arsenal, claiming ten out of a possible twelve points against these big guns. The intention is clear I believe, getting back to the champions league and winning the league.

3. Arsenal’s woes continues: The Gunners started their campaign on flying note cruising past London neighbours Fulham, but so far the Gunners have struggled to replicate the form they showed towards the back end of last season to claim the FA Cup and Community Shield.

The North London outfit is yet to find a win in their last four league outings and have found the back of the net once in four games.

4. Kane and Son’s partnership continues to prove vital: This duo is the hottest strike force in the league at the moment. The combination has spurred Spurs to sit at the top of the log. Harry Kane already has ten assist to his name this season and eight goals while Son has ten goals and a further three assists.

They are a strike force to be wary of this season.

5. Spurs’ resilient defending: the major characteristic of any Jose Mourinho side is its defence.

Tottenham have become solid in the back this season, although initially it was a shaky defence but they play with rhythm and confidence now provided Moussa Sissoko and Emile Hojberg sit in front of the back four
