Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Arsenal: Arsenal's player ratings
Arsene Wenger made two changes to the starting lineup which faced Everton last week. Playing at a familiar Wembley Stadium, Arsenal knew that a win would bring them closer to the league's top four, however, they eventually lost and their fate of missing out the Champions League through Premier League qualification spots has almost been sealed.
There will probably be no St. Totteringham's Day either for the second year running. Arsenal's only hope left to qualify for the Champions League will be through winning the Europa League.
Petr Cech started despite speculation that he would not, following an injury in the match against Everton. If not for his presence, Tottenham would have scored more than one goal.
He made a couple of marvellous saves to help Arsenal remain fighting in the game. However, his game was not all smooth-sailing. A misplaced pass from him almost allowed Tottenham to double their lead.
