North London is red once again! Arsenal’s winners, losers and ratings as Spurs endure dismal derby defeat

Loser: Emerson Royal

What can you say? Emerson endured a miserable afternoon up against Martinelli. The Spurs full-back just couldn’t cope with the Arsenal winger.

In the end, it almost looked like he just gave up, stamping on Martinelli’s ankle and getting himself sent off.

Antonio Conte must have been fuming.

Loser: Hugo Lloris

The Tottenham keeper was an injury doubt before the game and Spurs fans will probably now be wishing he had lost his fitness battle.

Lloris made an absolute mess of Bukayo Saka’s shot four minutes into the second half, spilling the the England man’s relatively tame effort.

The ball then deflected back to the keeper off Cristian Romero and the World Cup winner somehow let it squirm under his body, giving Jesus a tap-in.

It was another horrible error from the experienced Lloris, just as Tottenham were looking to build on the momentum that that they had gathered in the run up to half-time.

Gabriel Magalhaes:

The rash challenge on Richarlison which gave Spurs their first half penalty was the latest in a line of errors by the Arsenal centre-back this season.

As well as he has played for the majority of the campaign, the Brazilian just can’t seem to stop putting his side in trouble.

It’s something that has plagued Gabriel since his move to England and if he is going to become a truly world class centre-back, he needs to find a way of eradicating these mistakes from his game.

The errors always seem to be rush of blood moments as well. They are entirely avoidable.

For example, there was no need for him to go to ground for the penalty incident which gifted Spurs their equaliser. It was asking for trouble.
