North London is red!

Arsenal secured a memborable win in Sunday afternoon's North London derby after hitting Spurs for three in the first half of the encounter. The blazing Gunners left it all out there on the pitch to land a third successive win in the Premier League following a rather poor start.

Right from the word go, Mikel Arteta's men sought to stamp their dominance on the game and achieved this via a rejuvenated form. Just 12 minutes after kick-off, academy graduates Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe and combined to put the host ahead with a brilliant strike. 15 minutes later, the latter assisted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score his second goal of the season through a well-worked counter-attacking move.

Then came two mistakes by Harry Kane which aided Saka to put the ball past Hugo Lloris after his compatriot had made an attempt to dispossess him in the penalty box. A 79th-minute goal by Heung-Min Son handed Spurs a consolation as their winless run in the Premier League at the Emirates continued for the 11th season running.

For Arsenal, it was the first time in their history that they had scored three unanswered goals in the first 34 minutes of the North London derby. On the contrary, Spurs also conceded three or more goals in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since September 2003, having suffered the same feat against Chelsea and Crystal Palace in their last two outings before the trip to Emirates.

With the result, Nuno Espirito Santos' men also became the second team in Premier League history to win their first three games of a season and then lose the next three. Everton was the first club to attain the feat in 1993-94 - proceeding to finish in the 17th position at the end of the season.

In terms of personal accomplishments, Bukayo Saka dethroned Cesc Fabregas to become the youngest player in Premier League history to score and assist in a North London derby at the age of 20 years and 21 days. The record was previously Cesc Fàbregas who landed the milestone in September 2007.

In the grand scheme of things, Arsenal finished the sixth round by moving to ninth position on the Premier League table. Arteta's men are now just four points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
