“It’s about time. It felt amazing,” Arsenal captain Odegaard told Sky Sports. “We remembered what happened last time here and we wanted to play a better game and show a different side of us. We enjoyed the game.”

The win took Arsenal to 47 points from 18 matches and Manchester City to 39, while Newcastle United, who have played a game more, are a further point behind Manchester United.

Spurs are fifth with 33 points from 19 matches.

clear chance

Arsenal had their first clear chance after seven minutes when Eddie Nketiah’s shot was well saved by a diving Lloris.

They took the lead seven minutes later when Bukayo Saka crossed from the right and Lloris fired the ball into his own net for the first time in his 354-game Premier League career.

Arsenal were almost in complete control and Odegaard almost put the visitors ahead with a long-range drive that Frenchman Lloris rounded the post.

Thomas Partey came even closer with a fierce volley from outside the area that crashed against the post.
