Arsenal's Granit Xhaka was subbed off in the 80th minute due to injury. By failing to score in this match, Tottenham's Harry Kane continued his goal drought. This result should provide more relief to Mikel Arteta, who has been under immense pressure due to Arsenal's poor start to the season. The result also means that Tottenham have now lost three Premier League games in a row.
