Arsenal

won

the north London derby against Tottenham with a 3-1 result on Sunday. The Gunners displayed a thrilling performance in the first half, starting with Emile Smith Rowe’s opener in the 12th minute. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled the hosts’ lead 15 minutes later, scoring his second Premier League goal of the season. Bukayo Saka, who had provided the assist for Smith Rowe’s opener, completed his incredible performance by adding his name to the scoresheet in the 34th minute. Son Heung-min scored a goal for Tottenham in the second half, but that was not enough for the Spurs to escape the defeat.

In a post-match interview, Saka spoke about Arsenal’s performance and their current form.

"We have a lot of quality and enough experience to achieve a lot. We’re going to take it game by game but if we play like this we have enough quality to win trophies.

"I can’t really describe how good it feels. Starting with the atmosphere in the stadium — it was crazy! The fans gave us so much energy and, for us to repay them and win like this at the stadium, it just means everything for us.

"It’s been almost two years since we played a north London derby with the fans. And you could tell it’s been nearly two years by the way they received us and cheered us. It was a special game.

"We all wanted it. We knew how much the game meant to the fans, we knew how much the game meant to us. And of course to build winning momentum — we’ve won three games in a row — is really good for us.”

Having lost their first three games of the new campaign, Arsenal have displayed significant improvement in their recent performances. The Gunners have climbed their way up to eighth place on the Premier League table after achieving their third consecutive victory on Sunday.

"We’re getting closer as a team, getting more team spirit, so things are looking good.”

the English winger added.

"If we play like that all the time, we have a strong chance of doing well this season and winning some trophies. This is one game, we have to do it again the next week and the next week.

"We get into a lot of good situations but we need to score more goals. Yesterday, we were a lot more clinical, so we’re happy with that but we’ve got to do it consistently."

Arsenal will continue their Premier League campaign with a match against Brighton on Saturday.
