EPL: Arsenal edge Tottenham 3-2 to open gap at top of table

Arsenal survived a late Tottenham Hotspur comeback to win Sunday’s North London Derby 3-2.

The Gunners flew out of the blocks and took a three-goal lead in the first half.

Bukayo Saka’s corner-kick was diverted into his own net by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to give the visitors the lead.

Saka then finished off a fine counter-attack, before Kai Havertz headed in a third.

Spurs fought back in the second half, but goals from Cristian Romero and Son Heung-Min was not enough to avoid defeat.

Arsenal now have 80 points with three games left and are four points ahead of Manchester City, who have two fixtures in hand.
