Tottenham Hotspur defeated 10-man Arsenal as they won the North London Derby 3-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Harry Kane’s brace and Heung Min Son’s goal sealed the victory for Antonio Conte’s Spurs. Arsenal made a mistake as they gave away a penalty and Harry Kane converted it easily to give the hosts the lead.

Moreover, in the 33rd minute, Arsenal’s centre-back Rob Holding received his second yellow card and was sent off. Soon after the red card four minutes later, Heung Min Son doubled the lead for the hosts. 

Arsenal were playing with one man less than Tottenham Hotspur. Hence, they were struggling to find space in between the well-organised Tottenham defense.

The hopes of Arsenal coming back from behind were very low and they were ended in the second half after Son made it 3-0 at the start of the second half. 

Tottenham needed this win to keep their Champions League hopes alive. After this victory, Tottenham are now just a point behind fourth-placed Arsenal. However, with only two games left to play, it will be compelling to see who finishes fourth.
