Tottenham player ratings: Kane, Son, Hojbjerg, Alderweireld all superb

The pair assisted one another for lethal counter-attack goals in the first half before Spurs dropped deep and shut up shop after the interval, the result continuing Arsenal’s worst start to a season since 1981.

Recovered from a scare to start and commanded his area impressively. Made a fine second-half save to deny Lacazette.

Another impressive rearguard display from a player who looks transformed defensively. Won the ball and launched the counter-attack in the build up to Kane’s goal.

Recovered to play after a groin strain kept him out of the Chelsea game and was superb. Looks back to his best in Mourinho’s deeper defensive line.

Excellent yet again and really proving he can play centre-half at this level.

Made a superb last-ditch tackle to stop Aubameyang getting a shot away. An excellent one-one-one defender.

Tactically astute and full of energy. Vital to this team and, when you play this way, it hardly matters that he is mediocre with the ball.

Kept Spurs ticking over with the ball and put in a snarling performance without it. A transformational summer signing.

Scored a stunner and made Kane’s goal as his groundbreaking start to the season continues.

Replacing Tanguy Ndombele, the Argentine was vital for the second goal and impressed with his energy and off-the-ball work. Got booked and was replaced by Davies just after the hour.

Worked his socks off and gave Arsenal something to think about on the counter attack.

Brilliant assist for Son’s goal and superb finish. Looks on course to break records this season. He is both creative and lethal.

Ben Davies (Lo Celso 72’) 7

Enabled Spurs switch to a back three and played his part in a solid late rearguard.

Lucas Moura (Son 88’) 6

Gave Son a rest for final few minutes.

Joe Rodon (Bergwijn 90’) N/A 

A stoppage-time sub as Mourinho ran down the clock.

Subs not used: Winks, Bale, Hart, Rodon, Lucas Moura, Davies, Vinicius
