(2) Mikel Arteta's Masterclass:

The Spaniard showed why he emerged as the manager of the month for November/December 2022. He has led the Gunners to a fantastic start from the beginning of this Premier League season and the game against Spurs was not an exception. Arteta has been able to make his team strong in every department from the defensive line to the attack.

(3) Martin Odegaard:

The Gunners' captain has been an influential captain for the league leaders since he was given tye armband by Mikel Arteta.

The Norwegian has been able to hold the midfield for the Gunners since the start of this season and he showed that class with the second goal of the game.
