Hugo Lloris

Back in action and he pulled off a low save from Lacazette after 20 minutes. He could well say he had the Frenchman’s shot that hit the post covered. 7

Sergio Reguilon

Worked hard down the left and got the ball moving quickly up the pitch whenever called upon. 6

Eric Dier

Steady at the back throughout the first half and left the long balls to Sanchez until the final moments when he fluffed an attempted clearance only to make an important block to stop the subsequent chance on goal. 6

Davinson Sanchez

Back on the pitch and the Colombian played a long ball through within the first 10 minutes that led to a Son chance. Played another similar ball on the chest of Bergwijn not long after which showed shades of Alderweireld as did another ball to Son which culminated in Alli hitting the post. He also defended well during the half. 7

Playing at right-back for the first time in pre-season. While he isn’t going to provide an attacking threat, he did defend well and his inclusion could be with City in mind. 6

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

More of a box-to-box role with Skipp sitting back and he looked brighter than he did at Stamford Bridge. 6

Oliver Skipp

Made an important interception in his own box early in the first half. Was a constant nuisance to Arsenal and picked up a yellow card just before the break. 7

Steven Bergwijn

A quieter display than in previous pre-season friendlies as the other attacking midfielders caught the eye in the first half. 5

Dele Alli

Bright early on and looked to make things happen in attacking areas as he moved from the left of a midfield three out of possession to a more attacking role in a 4-2-3-1 when Spurs had the ball. Picked up a yellow card for a late tackle on Pepe, which seemed to be in retaliation for Hojbjerg getting knocked to the floor. Hit the post after a perfectly-timed run just before the break. 7

Lucas Moura

Gave Arsenal the runaround early on, setting up Son for a great chance in the first half in front of goal. Was a constant menace to the visitors. 7

Son Heung-min

Sent one early half-volley just wide before hitting a close range effort at Leno. Set up Alli well for a chance late in the half. 7
