That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that Tottenham return to the top of the league, while Arsenal remain in 15th.
Tottenham claim a 2-0 victory in the north London derby after a clinical display from Kane and Son. Spurs set out to defend deep and hit the away side with quick counter-attacks and it led to both of their goals: first Son curled in from 30 yards, before Kane finished off a thrilling breakaway just before half-time. Arsenal dominated possession throughout but struggled to create any chances against a determined Tottenham defence - Lacazette went close on a few occasions, but never really found a big opportunity, as Spurs comfortably held onto their lead.
90' + 4' FULL TIME: Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal

Lucas Moura
Son Heung-Min
88' Son is replaced by Lucas after a clinical display in attack,
88' Lacazette drills a speculative effort wide from 25 yards. 
87' Arsenal have thrown countless crosses into the area in this second half, but Tottenham have rarely looked troubled. A change of approach would have been useful earlier, but it could be too late for the away side now. 
85' Huge block from Alderweireld! Arsenal finally stretch the hosts as Aubameyang finds himself isolated in the area with Alderweireld, but the defender stays with him and blocks the attacker's eventual shot away for a corner!
83' Arsenal probe from side to side before Willian teases in a cross that Saka miscues well wide.
81' Son curls in the resulting free-kick and Kane heads it narrowly wide. However, the striker was offside and any goal wouldn't have stood. 
A. Lacazette
Yellow Card
80' Lacazette hauls Son over and earns himself a yellow card.  
79' Brilliant defending from Aurier! Ceballos angles a perfect cross towards Lacazette at the back post, but the defender stretches desperately to flick it beyond the attacker and away from harm! If he didn't get there Lacazette would have had a huge chance!
77' Tottenham have every player behind the ball in a structured shape as they continue to frustrate the away side. 
E. Nketiah
Bellerín
75' Bellerin is replaced by Nketiah as Arsenal desperately search for a way back into this one.  
G. Xhaka
Yellow Card
75' Xhaka is finally booked after his third foul of the day.
74' Willian whips in Arsenal's sixth corner, but it's easily hooked clear by Reguilon.
B. Davies
G. Lo Celso
72' Lo Celso is replaced by Davies as the hosts conservatively swap a midfielder with a defender. 
70' Tottenham are looking to slow the game down at every moment as they try and see this one out. 
68' Big save from Lloris! Bellerin swings in yet another cross for the away side and Lacazette glances it on at the near post, forcing Lloris into a scrambling save to parry it wide of the far corner!
66' Lacazette wins Arsenal another promising free-kick near the touchline after a foul from Sissoko. However, Willian's delivery arcs too far to the back post and Spurs clear.  
64' Despite enjoying 64% possession, Arsenal have still only managed three shots inside the box - and only one on target. Tottenham look comfortable just sitting deep against them right now and the away side will need to change something to worry them.  
62' Xhaka prepares to shoot from 20 yards but Hojbjerg rushes in to stab it away from the midfielder at the final moment.  
60' The pressure continues to mount on Spurs as they grapple to clear another Arsenal free-kick, but the away side are still struggling to produce shooting opportunities.   
58' Gabriel follows this up by clearing the corner with a commanding header. 
57' Bergwijn spins past Gabriel inside the box, but the defender recovers brilliantly to slide in and poke it away for a corner as the attacker was just about to shoot.  
55' Arsenal have been in total command of the opening moments of this half, but you sense they need to capitalise on this spell of pressure and equalise soon if they're to stage a comeback.   
53' Tottenham appeal for a pass-back after a dangerous counter-attack culminates with Ceballos nudging it into Leno's arms, but the referee waves play on.  
51' Arsenal have made an electric start to this half as Bellerin drills in a vicious cross that narrowly evades everyone!
50' Aubameyang goes close! Tierney charges forward from the back and whips in a dangerous cross that Aubameyang steers beyond Lloris but just over the bar!
49' Chance for Lacazette! Saka whips in a free-kick from the touchline and it's flicked across goal by Lacazette at the near post, but Lloris calmly gathers it with little fuss.
48' Spurs had just 38% possession in that first half, but they made the most of it with a series of incisive counter-attacks.
46' Tottenham get the second 45 under way.
It'd take quite a comeback for Arsenal to salvage this game but stranger things have happened in north London derbies.  
Tottenham take a commanding lead into the break after a clinical counter-attacking display. The hosts started brilliantly and quickly took the lead when Son whipped in a stunning effort from 30 yards after Kane began a counter-attack. And Son returned the favour just before half-time by slipping Kane through to beat Leno. In between, Arsenal controlled possession and territory but struggled to create chances, leaving themselves two goals down at half-time.

37' Son whips in a cross to the near post where Holding bravely flicks it away.
35' Arsenal have controlled possession and territory since the goal, but they're labouring to create any shooting chances inside the box.
33' Saka dances his way to the byline before dinking it across to Lacazette who can't beat Dier in the air and the hosts clear.  
31' All three of Tottenham's shots have come from outside the box so far - the hosts are looking to capitalise on shooting opportunities as soon as they arrive, rather than patiently waiting for openings.
29' Kane drives into the box before drilling a shot against Xhaka.
27' Reguilon darts to the byline before cutting it back in the box where Holding is on hand to poke it out to Hojbjerg who lashes it venomously at Leno from 25 yards.

23' Willian and Bellerin work a quick interchange on the edge of the box, but Sissoko is covering the danger and he tracks the run before clearing.

15' Well, that's a huge blow for Arsenal. They were quickly settling into the game, but that moment of inspiration has set them back considerably.
H. Kane
Assist
13' Kane will get credited with the assist there, but surely even he couldn't have expected Son to deliver such a brilliant strike!
Son Heung-Min
Goal
13' STUNNING GOAL FROM SON! 1-0 TOTTENHAM! The hosts snap into a quick counter-attack as Kane slips Son in down the left flank and the attacker runs at the backtracking Arsenal defence before whipping a brilliant effort into the top right corner from 30 yards!
12' Thomas lets fly with a powerful effort from 30 yards that whistles high and wide.
11' Dier's nervous back-pass forces Lloris into conceding a throw-in deep inside the Tottenham half. The opening 10 minutes have been riddled with fouls and mistakes as both teams try and calm themselves down.
9' Saka almost wriggles his way into the box, but Alderweireld anticipates the danger and races across to hack it clear.  
7' Arsenal win a free-kick of their own 30 yards from goal and Willian's delivery eventually falls to Saka who lashes a speculative effort over from outside the box.
5' Tottenham have started this one brightly, as they continue to purposefully move the ball around midfield.
2' Kane runs at the heart of the Arsenal defence before Xhaka comes across to knock him over and concede a free-kick. Dier attempts to curl it around the wall from 30 yards, but it drifts harmlessly over the bar.
1' Arsenal get the first half under way.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick-off is just seconds away!
