Tottenham vs Arsenal live analysis! – By Joe Prince-Wright at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Harry Kane and Heung-min Son are very, very happy with their goals and this win.

More reaction and analysis on the way to what was a huge win for Tottenham and ensures the battle for fourth place will go down to the final day.

FULL TIME: Tottenham 3-0 Arsenal – Spurs are just one point behind fourth-place Arsenal with two games remaining for both. The battle for the fourth is on. Highligths.

Lloris denies Odegaard’s tame effort.

Gabriel leaves injured for Arsenal as today goes from bad to worse. Do they still have centre-backs?

The game is now a training session for Spurs.

CLOSE! Heung-min Son puts the ball over the bar as he leans back after Sessegnon plays it. It looked like the ball was wobbling a bit. We’ll let His go…

The Oles are coming out now. Tottenham fans love it, and that’s understandable. Ramsdale then brilliantly denies Emerson after a long twisty move from Spurs.

Arsenal almost got one back straight away. Martinelli rushes forward and finds Saka but his shot is well blocked by Davies.

OBJECTIVE! A few minutes after the start of the second half, it’s 3-0. Kane does well to restrain Gabriel and play the ball to Son and he goes home. Game. Set. Match. It could get worse for Arsenal at 10…

HALF-TIME: Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal – Spurs in dreamland.

Chances galore for Spurs now as Emerson Royal is set to finish at the back post shortly after, but Hugo Lloris is forced into a fine save as Nketiah loops a shot to the top corner.

OBJECTIVE! Harry Kane makes it 2-0. He heads home at the far post after a corner. It’s chaos here.

RED CARD! Rob Holding receives a second yellow card for using his elbow to prevent Son from latching on to a long ball overhead. Arsenal imploded.

Spurs are flying now! Kane’s shot is blocked, then Emerson Royal hammers in wide. A ball into the box then almost finds Kane but Cedric comes back to clear.

OBJECTIFLL! Harry Kane kicks in the penalty after Cedric was judged for pushing Son in the back at the back post. Kulusevski floated in a nice ball and Son was ready to finish but received the boost from Cedric. Absolute scenes here as Kane celebrates with the local fans.

Was it a penalty, all the way? The jury is out…

Antonio Conte is warned for his reaction to Ben Davies’ foul on Saka. He thought Saka had fouled Davies just before that and charged down the touchline and then returned the ball. Animated. Keep it up, Anthony!

Gabriel Martinelli is causing all kinds of problems on the left. He gets the better of Emerson Royal and finds himself almost behind after a nice ball.

Everything is very frenetic here. Neither team can take control of the game and both seem very nervous on the ball.

Look at this tifo, btw. Fair play, south stand. Arsenal have settled in well. Hitting but Spurs start stringing together a few passes.

TO START UP: We are on our way. What an atmosphere here. Probably the loudest I’ve ever heard here.

Alright, that’s it. Here we are…

Both teams warm up here in the evening sun in north London. The tension is growing. It looks like both sets of fans are very, very nervous and have no idea how this is going to go given the inconsistency that has plagued these two teams this season.

The atmosphere is good here. Lots of boos from all over Arsenal from the Tottenham fans here inside the stadium.

Big news for the team as Bukayo Saka is fit enough to start at Arsenal. It’s a huge boost. Ben White is just fit enough for the bench. As for Tottenham, the big news from the injury is that Cristian Romero is out. Davinson Sanchez enters. It’s a blow for Spurs.

Welcome to North London for an absolutely massive derby! Both sets of fans are making themselves heard on the streets around the stadium and both have a lot of optimism that their team will get the win they need. They can’t all be right, can they…

Preview of Tottenham vs Arsenal

Antonio Conte’s Spurs drew at Liverpool at the weekend and although they performed well and could have grabbed all three points, they are now in fifth place and are four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with three games to play. That’s what makes this game so huge. If Spurs win, they have a chance of finishing in the top four ahead of their local rivals. If Arsenal win, they’ve sealed a top-four spot. On the pitch, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son remain key to Spurs’ Champions League hopes and they have both been very good at home against Arsenal in recent years. Opposite all time has seen Tottenham have won five and drawn two of their last seven PL home games against the Gunners.

As for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal, the motivation for them is clear: win and we are there. Arsenal haven’t featured in the UEFA Champions League since the 2016-17 season and finishing in the top four would be a huge achievement for the Arteta youngster. side. It’s their cup final and a win would remove any pressure for the final two games of the season (against Newcastle and Everton), while also confirming they finish above Spurs in the table for the first time since the 2015-16 season. Having beaten Leeds on Sunday, they have now put together a four-game winning streak that has put them in this position (which came after three straight defeats) and Arteta is now urging his side to finish the job. After finishing in the top four for 20 consecutive seasons, Arsenal have finished away from home in each of the last five campaigns. However, it looks like Arteta is building a strong, young core that can challenge even more than a top four in the coming years.
