Lukas Podolski (M) fires Arsenal ahead in the match
Arsenal benefited from Emmanuel Adebayor's sending off to secure a comeback victory over Tottenham and move above them in the Premier League.
Adebayor tapped Spurs in front against his old club but was dismissed for a high and late tackle on Santi Cazorla, reports the BBC.
Per Mertesacker headed the hosts level before strikes from Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud before half-time.
Cazorla slotted in and although Gareth Bale drilled home to pull one back, Theo Walcott sealed the points late on.
