MORNING GOONERS

The Gunners have beaten their rivals Spurs 2-0 at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

First half goals including a Hugo Lloris OG and Martin Odegaard beat Antonio Conte’s men.

Mikel Arteta’s side weathered a second half storm to earn a much well-earned win.

There were shocking scenes after Arsenal beat bitter rivals Tottenham 2-0 in the North London Derby.

As tensions boiled over at full-time, a fan KICKED OUT at Aaron Ramsdale.

After the game, he told Sky Sports: “The Spurs fans were giving me some stick in the second half and I gave them some back.

“To the few I did do it to it was probably well-greeted sportsmanship like but then a fan jumped over and gave me a little punch in the back.

“That’s what happened and it is a shame because it’s just a game of football at the end of the day.

“Both sets of players tried to bring me away, thankfully nothing happened too drastic.

“It is a sour taste but I am sure we will enjoy it when we go back to the dressing room.”

Tottenham have announced they will immediately ban the fan that kicked Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale after the North London Derby.

Tottenham released the following statement: “We are appalled by the behaviour of a supporter that attempted to attack Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of today’s match. Violence in any form has no place in football.

“The Club has reviewed its CCTV footage to identify the supporter and will be working with the Met Police, Arsenal and Aaron Ramsdale to take the strongest possible action, including an immediate ban from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.”

Mikel Arteta has responded to missing out on top transfer target Mykhailo Mudryk – hinting that Arsenal will be looking at alternatives.

He said: “We’ve excellent players. We want to improve our squad in this transfer window and I mean myself, the staff, players, the board, and ownership.

“We’re on it but we will do the deals that we can do and that we believe is right for the club”.
