Arsenal secured a 2-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last January in their first away NLD win since 2014. This came as a result of two first half goals, including an absolute stunner by Martin Odegaard.

Not only did this match avenge the Gunners' 3-0 loss they had suffered at their rivals' ground the previous spring, it also extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to put them eight points clear of Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta's side demonstrated their defensive brilliance as they withstood a second-half barrage from their hosts to see out the win. This win proved to any doubters that they were more than capable of silencing the league's tougher teams as a result of the brilliant work Arteta has done during his time at the club.
