Spurs recovered from the initial blow to take control of the match gradually. Harry Kane, their talismanic captain was inspirational as the centre-forward again and played some incisive passes to Son-Heung-Min. However, Son was below par today and had to be substituted in the second half.

Tottenham attacked through the right flank primarily and their right wing-back Kieran Trippier played some nice crosses into the Arsenal penalty box. Kane also fell back to win the ball at times and delivered a sumptuous chip into the path of Eriksen inside the opposition box.

The Danish midfielder forced a smart save from Arsenal's goalkeeper Bernd Leno from point-blank range, before making the save of the match against Sissoko from the subsequent rebound.

This was a great opportunity for the home team to draw level just before the half time, but they squandered it. They also got a few more chances but suffered because of the profligacy of their forwards.
