Arsenal have cemented their place at the top of the Premier League this afternoon, securing a deserved 2-0 victory over Spurs in the North London Derby.

It was a game where the away side dominated the opening half at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, finding themselves 2-0 up at the interval.

That gap could have been much larger, although Martin Odegaard's strike would ensure they had a comfortable lead at the break.

Spurs made a better go of it in the second half, creating a number of decent opportunities.

However, Aaron Ramsdale made a couple of big saves to ensure that his side came away with the three points.

The Arsenal player were thrilled at the final whistle, although Aaron Ramsdale had differing emotions to many of his teammates.

While they would celebrate the win, he became involved in an altercation with Spurs forward Richarlison.

Not only that, but it appeared as though he was kicked by a home fan as he attempted to collect his belongings at the advertising hoardings after the game.

Mikel Arteta attempted to drag his players away from the confrontation, although Ramsdale was visibly upset after the altercation with the supporter. The fan that was involved attempted to flee immediately after the incident, although you'd imagine that the authorities will have no issue identifying the culprit.

Granit Xhaka also attempted to get involved, although he was prevented from doing so by his teammates.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Ramsdale confirmed that the fan struck him after the game.

The Spurs fans were giving me some throughout the second half. I gave them some back, which to the few people I did it to was probably well greeted, sportsmanship like.

Then the fan tried to jump over and give me a little punch in the back. That's what happened and it's 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 too drastic happened, but it's a sour taste.

This result could prove to be a major one in the title race, with Arsenal now boasting an eight-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table. They will face Manchester United next week, where another victory would hammer home their status as title favourites.

As for Spurs, this is another poor result in what has been an incredibly patchy season under Antonio Conte. They will face a real battle to finish in the top four in the months ahead, while they could now be facing punishment for failing to control their supporters at the end of this game.
