UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League


That's all for today, goodbye!
Arsenal stay in 10th despite the win, but are now just four points behind Spurs and are closing the points gap to the European places. Spurs' five-game winning run comes to an end and they miss out on the chance to go fifth. Both of them turn their attention to the Europa League second legs now, with Arsenal playing Olympiacos and Spurs facing Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday.
Arsenal come from behind to beat Spurs 2-1. Lamela gave Spurs the lead with their first shot when he scored a brilliant Rabona, with Arsenal hitting the woodwork through Smith Rowe and Cedric on either side of it. Odegaard equalised just before half-time for the hosts. Lacazette won a penalty in the second half which he then converted to put his side ahead. Lamela was then sent off 10 minutes later for his second booking before Kane hit the post with a free-kick late on.
90' + 5' Kane steps up to take it for Spurs and he gets his effort up and over the wall, but there's no dip on it to bring it back towards goal. Leno is happy to see it over as it flies into the stands.
90' + 4' Spurs are still pushing for a late equaliser with Lucas making a driving run through the middle to try and create some space for a shot. He's brought down by Xhaka though and they have a free-kick just outside the box.
90' + 2' Spurs are moving the ball upfield a lot quicker now, but their passing into the final third is letting them down. Hojbjerg tries to pick out Kane with a throughball, but he hits it straight against Xhaka, who sets off on the counter for Arsenal.
90' OFF THE POST! Kane is standing over a free-kick on the left for Spurs and he goes for goal, curling his shot around the outside of the wall and trying to pick out the far bottom corner. It bounces back off the post to Sanchez, but his follow up shot is well-blocked by Elneny.
Mohamed Elneny
A. Lacazette
88' Last change for Arsenal now and it's Lacazette that's making way for Elneny.
87' Lucas is given a lot of space to run into down the right and he has time to pick out a floated cross towards Kane at the far post. He's up against Luiz and it's the defender that reaches it first to flick it out for a corner.
85' Lamela is the first player to score and be sent off in a Premier League game for Spurs since Emmanuel Adebayor in November 2012, also against Arsenal.
83' OFFSIDE! Lucas takes a free-kick for Spurs and he curls it into Kane at the far post. He sends his header back across goal and Leno can't get back quick enough to stop it hitting the back of the net, but Kane set off too early and the flag goes up against him.
G. Xhaka
Yellow Card
82' Xhaka misses the ball as he slides in late on Lucas and he earns himself a booking.
81' Lucas swings another corner into the box for Spurs and this time, Kane can only manage to flick it onto the far post. None of the Spurs players are expecting it though which gives Luiz a chance to clear his lines.
79' The corner is swung in for Spurs and Kane rises highest in the middle to get on the end of it. His header loops up towards goal, but Leno is quickly off his line to collect it before Alderweireld can follow in.
E. Smith Rowe
77' Another change for Arsenal now and Smith Rowe is the player making way, with Willian on for him.
76' SPURS DOWN TO 10! Lamela was played in by Sanchez and he swung out an arm to block off Tierney when he was closed down by the left-back. He caught him in the face with his elbow and the referee goes straight to his pocket to show him his second booking of the game and the goal scorer is off!
75' Arsenal are still keeping the ball well, but they're not moving the ball upfield as quickly as before. Gabriel is forced to go long when he's closed down by Kane, but his pass is cut out by Hojbjerg.
73' Lacazette is the first Arsenal player to score in three consecutive home Premier League games against Spurs since Emmanuel Adebayor in October 2008.
71' Doherty leaves it for Kane on the right of the box and the forward curls a dangerous cross into the six-yard box. Alli is attacking it at the far post, but it's just in front of him and nobody follows in at the far post for an easy tap in.
E. Lamela
Yellow Card
69' Lamela slides in late on Partey from behind and earns himself a booking.
68' Hojbjerg brings down Odegaard in midfield and Arsenal have a free-kick which Xhaka is standing over it. It initially looked like he was going to strike it, but he tried to float it to Luiz on the right instead, but there wasn't enough on it and Spurs clear their lines.
66' Spurs are keeping hold of the ball well at the moment, but all of their possession is in their own half of the field. They just can't find a way past Arsenal and are forced to pass it backwards as they try to draw the hosts out.
A. Lacazette
Penalty Goal
64' LACAZETTE SCORES! He steps up to take the penalty that he won, taking a short run-up before hitting the shot. He sends Lloris the wrong way, nestling his spot-kick into the bottom-right corner to give his side the lead. 2-1 Arsenal!
D. Sánchez
Yellow Card
63' The VAR review sticks with the onfield decision and Sanchez is booked for the challenge.
D. Alli
T. Ndombèlé
62' Final change for Spurs now and it's Ndombele that's making way for Alli.
62' PENALTY TO ARSENAL! The ball is played over the top for Lacazette and as it bounces up in front of him, he goes for the volley but scuffs his shot. Sanchez flies in after he gets the shot away, catches his outstretched leg and the Frenchman goes down before the referee points to the spot.
61' Luiz is allowed to carry it a long way down the right without being closed down by any of the Spurs players and he manages to pull it back for Lacazette in the middle. His heavy first touch almost sets up Smith Rowe, but Alderweireld clears his lines.
59' It's patient play from Arsenal as they continue to play out from the back and draw out Spurs in midfield. Partey gets it on the halfway line and tries to take it past Hojbjerg, but is blocked off by the midfielder and wins a free-kick.
M. Sissoko
G. Bale
57' Bale is coming off for Spurs, and he doesn't look particularly happy as he makes his way to the bench. Sissoko is on for him.
56' SAVE! Odegaard turns a plays it through to Lacazette. He has his back to goal but takes it around Sanchez with his first touch before drilling his effort on target, but it's a comfortable save for Lloris down the middle.
54' Smith Rowe lays the ball off to Tierney on the left before continuing his run into the box for the return pass. The left-back swings a cross into the near post, but it's too far ahead of Smith Rowe and Lloris comes off his line to collect it.
52' Odegaard is the fifth player to score their first Arsenal Premier League goal against Spurs after Nicklas Bendtner, Mikael Silvestre, Per Mertesacker and Lucas Torreira.
50' Bale does really well to hold Cedric as he pushes forward down the left and he manages to squeeze his cross past the defender and into the middle of the box. No Spurs players run onto it though and Luiz clears his lines.
48' Spurs have made a brighter start to the second half and have Arsenal on the back foot. Reguilon makes a driving run down the left before whipping a cross into the box, but there's not enough on it to pick out Kane.
46' Spurs get us back underway for the second half! 
N. Pépé
B. Saka
46' There's a change at the break for Arsenal, with Pepe coming on to replace Saka.
Arteta will be frustrated that his side went behind after their domination, but they've looked dangerous every time they've gone forward and they deserve to be level. As for Spurs, Mourinho won't be happy, despite them taking the lead, as they've barely been in the game and he'll need to do something to stop Arsenal's dominance, especially against Doherty on their right.
It's 1-1 at the break between Arsenal and Tottenham. The hosts dominated the first half, with Smith Rowe almost giving them the lead 16 minutes in when he hit the post. Lamela then scored in Spurs' first attack of the game, beating Leno with a brilliant Rabona into the far bottom corner. Cedric hit the other post for Arsenal with a long-range effort before Odegaard's deflected shot beat Lloris to pull them level before the break.
45' + 1' Arsenal are looking for another late goal in this first half, this time with Cedric driving forward down the right. He can't pull away from Reguilon though and his low cross is put out for a corner.
K. Tierney
44' Yet again, Tierney got the better of Doherty down the left, brushing the right-back aside and drilling a low cross into the box for Odegaard.
M. Ødegaard
44' ODEGAARD EQUALISES! Tierney's cross picks out Odegaard, who is in a lot of space in the middle. He scuffs the shot and it takes a slight deflection off Alderweireld which helps it past Lloris and into the bottom corner. 1-1!
42' Spurs just can't get out of their own half at the moment as Lucas' clearance is cut out by Xhaka. He picks out Tierney down the left and he makes another driving run down the wing, only for Doherty to cut out his cross.
Yellow Card
40' Saka dribbled past Reguilon and the defender just couldn't get close to him. When Saka doubles back, Reguilon has another go, this time bringing him down, and he's shown the first yellow card of the game.
39' The team scoring first in this Premier League fixture have failed to win more times (27 games) than they have won (25 games).
37' OFF THE POST AGAIN! Smith Rowe is still causing Doherty trouble down the left and he pulls a cross back from the byline. Lacazette misses it in the middle, but it rolls through to Cedric, who gets the better of Lucas to drill a shot on goal, only for it to bounce off the woodwork.
35' Arsenal are dominating possession again after the restart, but they're still struggling to find a way in behind Spurs to trouble the goalkeeper. Tierney has space down the left again, but his cross is once again met by a Spurs defender in the middle.
Lucas Moura
33' Reguilon wasn't picked up on the left and he volleyed the cross into the box for Lucas, who teed up the shot for Lamela.
E. Lamela
33' WHAT A GOAL! It's Spurs' first attack of the game and they've broken the deadlock! Reguilon puts the cross into the box, with Lucas picking it up and touching it on for Lamela. It's a crowded box, but he goes for the Rabona, drilling it past the two defenders in front of him and into the far post. 1-0 Spurs!
31' Spurs just can't find a way through Arsenal's midfield at the moment as Hojbjerg tries to carry it forward. None of his team-mates are making runs ahead of him though and he's forced to go backwards.
29' It's sloppy from Cedric as he gifts the ball to Reguilon on the halfway line and he touches it onto Lucas, who has space to run into. It's too slow from Spurs though and he's nudged off it by Partey.
27' Spurs have a chance to break quickly on the counter after Ndombele nicks the ball off Cedric and he lays it off to Lamela through the middle. He takes too long to decide what to do though and he's crowded off the ball by Arsenal's defenders.
25' Arsenal are getting a lot of joy down their left, with Tierney linking up well with Smith Rowe again. He pulls it back from the byline to pick out Lacazette in the box, but he scuffs it and drags his effort wide of the far post.
23' Smith Rowe pulls away from Doherty down the left again and this time, he pulls the ball back for Partey on the edge of the box. He hits the shot first time, drilling it towards the far post, but it flies well wide of the target.
21' Alderwiereld is just holding onto the ball as he waits for a team-mate to make a run ahead of him and he eventually looks long to Lamela. He turns straight into trouble in Xhaka though and Arsenal have the ball back.
E. Lamela
Son Heung-Min
19' Son goes straight down the tunnel after leaving the field and it's Lamela that's coming on to replace him.
18' Son pulled up and it looked like he was holding his hamstring before he sat down and it's not looking good for the forward. The medical team is on the field to give him some treatment and Mourinho has substitutes warming up.
16' OFF THE POST! Lacazette touches the ball onto Smith Rowe and he cuts back onto his right foot before curling a shot towards goal. Lloris is beaten as it loops over him, but it bounces back off the far post before Sanchez clears his lines.
15' Lloris came out of his box to deal with a long ball over the top but has to clear it on the stretch as he's closed down by Odegaard. Xhaka intercepts it and decides to have a go from range after taking it around Hojbjerg, but fires it high over the bar.
14' Arsenal are winless in their last five meetings with Spurs in all competitions (D2 L3) - they've never gone without a win against their North London rivals before.
12' Arsenal are keeping the pressure on Spurs here and the visitors can't get out of there own box. It's Saka this time that floats a cross in from the right, but it's over Lacazette's head and straight out of play.
10' It's a great ball over the top from Partey to pick out Tierney on the left and he swings a great cross into the middle. Sanchez clears it, but only as far as Odegaard. He chooses not to hit it first time and the Spurs defenders quickly close him down.
8' It's better from Spurs now as they patiently play out from the back and they're starting to push Arsenal back. Doherty links up well with Bale down the right, with the Welshman whipping a cross into the box, but it's too close to Leno, who comes off his line to collect it.
6' Arsenal are dominating possession here, with Spurs barely having a touch of the ball in the opening minutes. The hosts are playing out from the back, with Luiz picking out Lacazette on the right with a throughball, but his cross is blocked by Alderweireld.
4' Lacazette wins a free-kick in midfield and Odegaard swings it into the box for Arsenal. Alderweireld half gets it away but Luiz keeps it alive for the hosts, only for his cross to be cleared by Reguilon.
2' Tierney spots Smith Rowe's run ahead of him down the left and he puts his cross into a dangerous area first time before Doherty can get back. None of his team-mates got into the six-yard box though and it's a comfortable clearance for Sanchez.
1' Odegaard gets the game underway for Arsenal!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
No Arsenal manager has ever lost their first three North London derby matches (as Arteta could do with defeat here), while no Spurs manager has ever won their first three such games (as Mourinho could do).
Jose Mourinho made a lot of changes for their Europa League tie on Thursday, so he names a team with just one difference to their last Premier League line-up. Ndombele comes in for Winks, who is on the bench, while Kane is fit to start despite coming off with a knee problem against Dinamo Zagreb.
Mikel Arteta makes three changes to the side that beat Olympiacos on Thursday as he brings in Cedric, Smith Rowe and Lacazette. Club captain Aubameyang has been dropped to the bench for disciplinary reasons, while Willian and Bellerin are also named as substitutes.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Joe Hart, Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Ben Davies, Harry Winks, Carlos Vinicius.
TOTTENHAM STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Matt Doherty, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon; Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg; Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane.
ARSENAL SUBS: Willian, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Hector Bellerin, Calum Chambers, Mat Ryan, Mohamed Elneny, Rob Holding, Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe.

Spurs have a chance to close the gap to the top four with a win today and come into this game having won their last five matches in all competitions, scoring 15 and conceding just once during that run. As for Arsenal, they've lost just one of their previous seven in all competitions (W4 D2), but that loss came in their last Premier League home match when they lost 1-0 to Manchester City.
