A blunder from Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris when he fumbled Bukayo Saka’s cross helped Mikel Arteta’s side into the lead on 14 minutes.

Captain Martin Odegaard then drilled in a second goal from outside the area nine minutes before the break to put the visitors in control.

Spurs also had their chances but the goalkeeping brilliance from keeper Aaron Ramsdale stopped Harry Kane and Ryan Sessegnon’s efforts.
