Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane scored to sink Arsenal 2-0 in front of their 2000 fans who were allowed to enter the stadium for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown.
The goals from the duo helped Spurs return to the top of the league table.
Son (13) curled in a delicious opener after being assisted by Kane for the eighth time in the Premier League this season, before returning the favour as Kane (45+1) slammed in the second to become the top scorer in north London derby history, with his 11th strike against the Gunners.
Arsenal dominated possession and territory throughout but once again their disjointed attack failed to fire or fashion any real clear-cut openings. That’s just two goals in seven top-flight games for Arsenal now, and their sixth defeat in their last nine Premier League games leaving them 15th in the table.
In another game, Liverpool thumped Wolves 4-0 to return to their winning ways and take the second place on the league table with same points as Tottenham.
The Reds put up a show in front of their fans who returned to Anfield for the first time since June.
Mohamed Salah pounced on Conor Coady’s error to open the scoring in the first half before goals from Georginio Wijnaldum (58), Joel Matip (67) and a Nelson Semedo own goal sealed the emphatic victory and extended their unbeaten league home record to 65 games.
The three points see Liverpool, who handed a Premier League debut to goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher in the absence of Alisson Becker, move back up to second in the table, level on 24 points with Spurs.
Wolves stay 10th after suffering a fourth league defeat of the season.
