However, the controversial incident after the full-time whistle has now threatened to overshadow last night's fixture in north London. In fact, the Metropolitan Police confirmed that as many as 10 arrests were made in connection to criminal damage, assault and public disorder offences.

An Arsenal spokesman claims the club will work alongside Spurs in an attempt to resolve the issue. The statement read: "We will work with Tottenham Hotspur and the authorities on this."

One thing is for sure, despite last night's troubles, Arsene Wenger and co. will be overjoyed with the victory over Spurs. 

After suffering defeat at the hands of Chelsea this past weekend, it was crucial that the Gunners responded in style last night. In truth, they weren't at their best at the Lane, but they managed to get the job done. 

Thanks to an unlikely hero in Flamini, Wenger's side will be full of confidence going into their game at the King Power stadium against high-flying Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
