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. Came off after 65 minutes. 7

Sergio Reguilon

Worked hard down the left and got the ball moving quickly up the pitch whenever called upon. Burst down the flank in the second half and sent a shot across the face of goal. 7

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. Improved in the second half and little got past him. He skimmed the crossbar with a late free-kick. 7

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 and headed on a Son free-kick on the hour mark which Alli turned against the post. Replaced by Rodon on 72 minutes and it was an impressive return for the Colombian. 8

Japhet Tanganga

Playing at right-back for the first time in pre-season. While he didn’t provide an attacking threat in the first half, he did defend well and then in the second half turned provider after battling superbly to get the ball off Pepe, and following a pass from Lo Celso, teed up Son to score. Came off after a knock late on but could have played himself into a 8

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

More of a box-to-box role with Skipp sitting back and he looked brighter than he did at Stamford Bridge. Got better as the game wore on. 7

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. Was a busy presence in the second half before coming off to a big cheer and looks set to be a regular starter under Espirito Santo. 7

Steven Bergwijn

A quieter display than in previous pre-season friendlies as the other attacking midfielders caught the eye in the first half. Improved a lot in the second half with some important runs and work in his own half. 7

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. He sent another effort against the left-hand post after sliding in at the back from a free-kick. His best game of pre-season by a long way. Just needed the finishing touch. 8

Lucas Moura

Gave Arsenal the runaround from the first whistle, setting up Son for a great chance in the first half in front of goal. Was a constant menace to the visitors and used the ball well on the whole. 8

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. Whipped in a dangerous free-kick which culminated in Dele hitting the post. Took his goal superbly and the fans showed their love for him throughout. 8

Subs

Giovani Lo Celso

Set up Son for a chance after making a long run down the pitch soon after replacing Hojbjerg. Was involved in the goal and the Copa America winner looked bright. 7

Pierluigi Gollini

Replaced Lloris with 25 minutes to go but only had a couple of comfortable saves to make. 6

Joe Rodon

Came on for Sanchez late in the game and did what he had to. 6

Dane Scarlett

Got a couple of touches in the final minutes. N/A

Harry Winks

Replaced Skipp for the latter stages of the game. N/A

Serge Aurier

Came on for Tanganga, who had a knock late on. N/A
