Arsenal beats Tottenham 2-0 to stretch EPL lead to 8 points

LONDON (AP) — Arsenal has extended its Premier League lead to eight points with a 2-0 win at Tottenham in the north London derby that was helped by an own-goal by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Lloris turned a cross from Bukayo Saka into his own net in the 14th minute to hand Arsenal the lead and Martin Odegaard doubled the advantage with a low shot from distance in the 36th as the visitors totally dominated the first half against a lackluster Spurs side. Tottenham improved after the break but Aaron Ramsdale made a number of saves to keep the hosts at bay and strengthen the belief that this could be a special season for Arsenal.
