Watch full highlights as Arsenal stole the bragging rights in the north London derby with a 2-0 victory.
Spurs had been hailed as the dominant force in this fiercest of rivalries but goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez secured the Gunners a 2-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium.
The result means Arsenal move just one point behind Tottenham.
There was a hint of fortune about each of Arsenal's first-half goals. Mustafi's header came after referee Mike Dean had awarded a dubious free-kick for a foul on Sanchez while Alexandre Lacazette was just offside in the build-up to their second.
But few could argue with the result as Arsene Wenger's side beat Tottenham at their own game, showing themselves faster, stronger and hungrier than their opponents in every department.
If Arsenal could produce this sort of ruthless performance more consistently, they would surely be title contenders.
