Mourinho’s team started losing by a Lacazette goal, but managed to reverse the result with goals from Son and Alderweireld.

Kolasinac missed a pass behind directed to David Luiz and the ball was left to the Korean attacker of the Spurs, who faced the goal and defined over Emiliano Martínez to establish the 1-1 with which they would go to rest, although Tottenham was close to reversing the scoreboard with a shot from Ben Davies that crashed into the crossbar.

The team led by Mikel Arteta took the initiative at the beginning of the second half, settled in a rival field and Aubameyang almost regained the advantage with a shot that was returned by the crossbar at 59 ‘.

Those of José Mourinho endured the attacks of Arsenal and reacted in the last stretch of the match to stay with the three points thanks to a header by Alderweireld, after a corner kick from the left executed by Son.

With this result, the Spurs rank eighth in the English league with 52 points and move closer to qualifying positions for the next Europa League. Arteta’s team remains ninth with 50 units.
