The Gunners arrived at the home of their bitter rivals reeling from their defeat to Swansea City in midweek, with Arsene Wenger under significant pressure as their Premier League title bid was seemingly slipping away.

After a stunning save from David Ospina denied Erik Lamela the opener earlier on, it was the visitors who found the all-important first goal with some decent build-up play opening Tottenham up.

Following some good work from Danny Welbeck and Hector Bellerin, the Spanish full-back crossed into the box to find Ramsey in a bit of space as the Welshman produced a brilliant back-heel flick to divert the ball past Hugo Lloris.

With the home faithful stunned into silence, it remains to be seen whether or not Mauricio Pochettino can inspire his side to come out in the second half and overturn their deficit.

Tottenham were three points above their rivals ahead of kick off in second place, as they look to pick up all three points in order to move level with Leicester City at the top of the league table.
