A Hugo Lloris own goal and superb Martin Odegaard strike sent Arsenal eight points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Sports presenter and Gunners fan Woods, 35, was left gushing at Arteta after the match.

She took to Twitter to celebrate the victory, and Arteta’s funny comment about Arsenal’s poor recent record at Spurs.

Woods wrote: “‘You haven’t won here, at this ground since 2014’.

“Arteta: ‘Yes I was here.’

“Arrghh I love him!”

Arsenal had not won any of their last eight Prem visits to Spurs before today.

The last time the Gunners picked up three points at the home of their biggest rivals was in March 2014.

And Arteta played all 90 minutes as a Thomas Rosicky thunderbolt sealed a 1-0 win.

Sunday’s fiery encounter was marred by disgraceful scenes at the final whistle.

A fan KICKED Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale after a coming together between the stopper and Spurs striker Richarlison.

Tottenham vowed to ban the supporter in a statement after the game.

It said: “We are appalled by the behaviour of a supporter that attempted to attack Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of today’s match.

“Violence in any form has no place in football.

“The club has reviewed its CCTV footage to identify the supporter and will be working with the Met Police, Arsenal and Aaron Ramsdale to take the strongest possible action, including an immediate ban from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.”
