Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to become the first Premier League player to reach 10 goals for the season before goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira secured all three points for Unai Emery's team.
And there were plenty of emotional reactions on social media as the Gunners moved to fourth in the English topflight log.

1 - Lucas Torreira is the fourth Arsenal player to score his first ever Premier League goal for the club in a match against Spurs, after Nicklas Bendtner, Mikael Silvestre and Per Mertesacker. Greats. #ARSTOT— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) December 2, 2018
Unai Emery made just two changes at the start of second-half and turned the game completely on its head. From 1-2; now 4-2, Arsenal fans have found a new Darling in the Spanish gaffer. The Wenger days well and truly gone. #ARSTOT— Godwin Odiko ⚽ ™ (@GodwinOdiko) December 2, 2018

brilliant management by Wenger to completely burn the confidence of this Arsenal team to ashes so they could later rise from them like a Phoenix. The master has done it again.— Across the Pond (@ATPradio) December 2, 2018
