Arsenal have plumped up an eight-point cushion at England’s summit.
The Gunners boosted their unexpected surge for the Premier League title Sunday with a convincing 2-0 win at archrivals Tottenham Hotspur.
After reigning champions Manchester City lost 2-1 in their own derby date at Manchester United on Saturday, Arsenal went two goals ahead in the first half at Spurs courtesy of a Hugo Lloris own goal and a fine long-range finish from Martin Odegaard.
“It’s Tottenham…we’ve got to beat Tottenham, this is always the mentality!” 👀
