Official: Arsenal Star Wins Man Of The Match After Todays Performance

Bukayo Saka won the man of the match award after claiming a goal and an assist as Arsenal won the north London derby with a 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium.

Saka also became the youngest player to score and assist in a North London derby match.

The Gunners hurried into a 3-0 lead with a stunning first 45 minutes of the game.

Saka is exactly what Arsenal needs as he set up Smith Rowe for the opener on 12 minutes.

27 minutes later, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started and finished the counter-attacking move for Arsenal's second as he swept home Smith Rowe's center.

Saka then powered forward seven minutes later keeping his composure to produce a crisp finish.

Son Heung-min pulled a consolating goal for Spurs with 11 minutes remaining which happens to be the first goal conceded by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in his three Premier League appearances for Arsenal.

Ramsdale produced a gorgeous fingertip save in stoppage time, tipping Lucas Moura's effort onto the bar.

Victory takes Arsenal up to 10th on nine points, one place ahead of their North London rivals.
