And it's first blood to Arsenal, somewhat against the run of play - a tidy finish as Olivier Giroud slots home after 22 minutes. It's the first goal Tottenham have conceded this season. Giroud has now netted in each of Arsenal's opening three fixtures.
The first goal in this Premier League fixture, however, hasn't always been that important - Arsenal have won the last two, despite Tottenham going two up in both.
The goal has, however, has clearly lifted Arsenal as Tottenham are currently on the back foot.
