Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur: 4 things we learned

Arsenal will revert to type and lose at Burnley after battering Tottenham, claims Rio Ferdinand

Rio Ferdinand believes Arsenal will revert to type against Burnley next weekend, despite enjoying a confidence boosting win in the north London derby.

Arsenal's Hector Bellerin in action against Tottenham Hotspur.

Following their 2-0 victory over Tottenham the Gunners are now one place and two positions outside the top four. "When we win against them and it is a different opinion and I am working hard to try to improve that".

Both, Gary and Phil Neville, have in the past been heavily critical of the 29-year-old, however, even they were forced to take their hats off and appreciate the performance that was put in by Ozil. Against the run of play, Christian Eriksen gained control of the ball and took a low shot that had well beaten Petr Cech in the Arsenal goal, but could not evade the post.

Arsenal told their win over Spurs will mean nothing if one thing happens

A thigh injury in October kept Mustafi out for six weeks, but Arsenal are yet to concede in the Premier League this season when he has partnered Laurent Koscielny in defence. Replays did suggest Mustafi was marginally offside, but the German defender was the first to react to his compatriot's free-kick, and was in ideal position to rise and head past Hugo Lloris.

Arsene Wenger gave a rare start to a front three of Ozil, Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette who continually linked-up well, with contributing to the goals. This was also Ozil's 45th assist since his debut in September 2013 - more than any other player in that time. On the night though, he had been at his tormenting best, and he used his pace and strength to shove past a defender and slot home from close range.

Sanchez nearly made it three when his strike was repelled by Lloris and Cech's fine save from Eric Dier's header ensured there would be no late Tottenham revival.

Driven on by the effervescent Sanchez, they had no trouble turning the screw on Tottenham and nearly took the lead when Aaron Ramsey's exquisite pass caught Tottenham left-back Ben Davies out of position.
