Tottenham 0-1 Arsenal Highlights
Arsenal kept themselves in contention for the Premier League title as Tomas Rosicky’s early goal secured victory at north London rivals Tottenham.
Rosicky rifled in a sublime angled drive just minutes into the game after leading a swift break for the visitors.
Tottenham’s Emmanuel Adebayor flicked a shot wide in the first half, and they dominated after the break.
Nacer Chadli’s low shot was blocked on the line and Adebayor headed narrowly off target, but Arsenal held on.
The win means Arsenal are third in the standings but crucially now just four points off leaders Chelsea, who lost 1-0 to Aston Villa on Saturday, and with a game in hand.

Arsenal have not won on any of their last five league visits to White Hart Lane (D2, L3), losing their last two matches there 2-1.
Their last victory at Tottenham was a 3-1 win on 15 September 2007, when Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice.
Tottenham are seeking their 50th league win over the Gunners.
Spurs have netted 16 times in their 14 home league games this season. Prior to this weekend, it was the lowest tally in the top half of the Premier League table.
They are unbeaten in the 16 league games in which they have scored first this season, winning 13 of those matches.
Of the 37 goals Tottenham have conceded in the Premier League, 20 have come in four games (home and away to Manchester City, plus away to Liverpool and Chelsea).
According to Opta statistics, Tottenham have made 13 errors leading to goals in the Premier League this season, three more than any other side. Three of them came last weekend against Chelsea.
The Gunners have won only two of their last six league games (W2, D2, L2).
Defeat would see the Gunners lose three successive away league games for the first time since August-October 2011. The third game in that sequence was a 2-1 loss to Tottenham on 2 October.
Arsenal have conceded 21 of their 28 goals this season away from home.
They have kept only one clean sheet in their last seven away league games, conceding a total of 16 goals.
