Highlights; Watch full highlights Arsenal vs Brighton as the Gunners were phenomenal
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said his side were “phenomenal” as the Gunners moved four points clear at the top of the Premier League by inflicting a first defeat of the season on arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Thomas Partey curled in a superb 20th-minute opener and Gabriel Jesus struck in his first North London derby as Arsenal overcame Harry Kane’s equaliser from the penalty spot – his 100th Premier League away goal – to earn a seventh successive home win.
“From the beginning, we went for it,” said Arteta after victory ensured Arsenal will end the weekend above second-placed Manchester City.
“We were brave, we were courageous, we were free – and that’s what we encourage the players to be.”
Tottenham’s miserable end to their 13-match unbeaten league run was compounded when Emerson Royal was sent off for raking Gabriel Martinelli.
As dominant Arsenal sought to capitalise on their numerical advantage, Granit Xhaka continued his renaissance at the club by firing a low shot past Hugo Lloris.
