Goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane helped Tottenham to a convincing 2-0 win in the north London derby at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Spurs were the better side throughout the first-half, but failed to make the most of a number of great chances, with Alli missing a header when it looked harder to miss.
Christian Eriksen then hit the woodwork with a side-footed effort when he really should have scored.
The first-half would end in stalemate but soon after the re-start, the Lilywhites got the goal they deserved, with Alli firing home after an initial shot from Eriksen.
Three minutes later, the hosts made it 2-0, via a Harry Kane penalty. However, on a day of questionable penalty decisions, the striker was arguably lucky to win the foul after seeming to initiate the contact with Gabriel.
However, whether or not the penalty was warranted, Spurs were well worth their 2-0 lead against an Arsenal side who once again produced a flaccid display.
Arsene Wenger sent on Danny Welbeck to try to kickstart his side’s impotent attack but as has been the case so often this season, the Gunners were simply second best.
Tottenham would cruise home to move back to within just four points of leaders Chelsea, and an incredible 17 points ahead of Arsenal.
There’ll be no St. Totteringham’s Day this season, with Spurs guaranteed to finish above their rivals for the first time in 22 years.
Chin up beleaguered Gooners, it had to happen some time, didn’t it?
Arsenal now find themselves six points off a top-four spot, with a Champions League place looking increasingly unlikely.
