Arsenal player ratings vs Tottenham as Rob Holding loses head but Takehiro Tomiyasu impresses
Aaron Ramsdale: Made some good saves to keep the score respectable after the third goal in particular. Couldn't do much about any of Spurs' strikes and was distributing well prior to Holding's red. 6.
Cedric: Probably harsh to concede the penalty, but should have been cuter with his foul. Some poor giveaways after that but did recover to make a sublime block to stop Kane not long after. 5.
Rob Holding: Tried to reprise his 'bad cop' routine to stop Diego Costa from the 2017 FA Cup final victory over Antonio Conte's Chelsea. That day he stayed the right side of the emotional line. Today he strayed over it. Far too invested in trying to rattle Son and lost his head on a day when Arsenal needed to keep their cool. 3.
Gabriel: Pinned far too easily by Harry Kane in the build-up to Son's goal and will be disappointed that he poked the ball straight into the Korean's path. Not helped by those around him but a tough evening for the Brazilian. 5.
Takehiro Tomiyasu: Defensively really strong as ever, including one miraculous block to keep Harry Kane from scoring when he appeared to have lost balance. Showed his versatility by switching over into the middle of the back four too. 7.
Mohamed Elneny: Did a really good job of stopping the supply line to Kane, which is a huge reason why the England striker was basically absent before his goal. Couldn't do it as much after the red card and Arsenal suffered as a result. 7.
Martin Odegaard: Had some shooting chances from the edge of the box but mishit every single one. Did a decent job of screening the backline while trying to contribute to the attack in the second half, but needs to improve his finishing. 6.
Granit Xhaka: Was doing a good job of pressing high and helping to unpick the Spurs backline early on but his game changed after the red. Did well to fill in at left back against a tricky customer in Kulusevski. 7.
Bukayo Saka: Did some good pressing early on in the game to win the ball high and was a big threat in the Spurs box. Influence faded massively after the red though unsurprisingly. 6.
Eddie Nketiah: Switched off defensively to allow Kane to get free from the corner for his second. A decent effort tested Lloris and smart running did help Arsenal get up the pitch on occasion. 6.
Gabriel Martinelli: Was a big threat down the left and caused Emerson Royal and Davinson Sanchez some early problems. Still continued as a problem for Spurs even after the red until he was withdrawn early in the second. 7.
Emile Smith Rowe: Did a good job of supporting the defence, but having been introduced when the game was already lost there was not much he could do going forward. 6.
Alexandre Lacazette: Dropped very deep - as is his nature - after coming on, but when Arsenal needed more of a focal point in their attack he didn't really provide it. 5.
Nuno Tavares: Got forward well to help with what was probably Arsenal's best attacking move of the second half. The fact that he came on for the injured Gabriel will be a worry though. 7.
