Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta hailed a “special day” after his side dominated local rivals Spurs

in the North London derby.

His side gave backing to a bold pre-match prediction from ex-Arsenal defender Gael Clichy that Arteta

“could be the next Arsene Wenger”.

The Gunners ran riot with first-half strikes from Emile Smith-Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka,
while Spurs replied through Son Heung-min.

“Today is one example of what we can do,” said Arteta, 39. “It’s a special day.”

He added: “This win is for the fans. They were there when we needed their support and now we are creating that

connection with the supporters.”

Arsenal endured a difficult start to the season, including a 5-0 thrashing at Man City, as they lost their opening three games.

Since the international break, though, they have turned their fortunes around with three straight wins.

“I think in life you have to show gratitude,” added Arteta. “These people have stood by this club and these players.

This win is for them.”

Goalscorer Smith Rowe said: “It’s probably the best day of my life. To have my family here as well, it’s a special feeling.”

He also praised the influence of Arteta, saying: “He just tells us to keep calm, the fans give us so much confidence as well.”

Clichy – who played under Wenger for eight years – worked with Arteta when he was first-team coach at Manchester City

and believes the Spaniard has all the qualities to build a legacy at Arsenal.

Wenger was in charge of Arsenal between 1996 and 2018, winning three Premier Leagues and seven FA Cups for the Gunners.

This win takes Arsenal above Spurs – who won their first three and have now lost three in a row at the same time.
