Comments:

League position: 10th Arsenal had now won four and drawn one of their last five games in all competitions. Martin Odegaard became the first player to score his first goal in the Premier League for the Gunners in a North London derby since Lucas Torreira in December 2018. Alexandre Lacazette became the fifth player to score ten or more goals in four or more consecutive seasons in the Premier League for Arsenal; also Ian Wright, Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry and Olivier Giroud.

Comments:

League position: 7th Tottenham Hotspur failed in their attempt to win four consecutive games for the second time in this Premier League season. This was Spurs' first defeat after scoring the first goal in a game in the Premier League since the 3-2 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers on 1 March 2020. Érik Lamela became the first substitute to score in the first-half of a Premier League game for Spurs since Gary Doherty against Sunderland on 8 February 2003.
