The Ghanaian star returned from injury after the international break and has been a steel in midfield for the Gunners.

Before his return, the London giants had lost all three opening games in the English Premier League.

However, they have now won three consecutive games with the 28-year-old in the head of midfield.

In the North London derby on Sunday, Arsenal started the game in explosive fashion after Emile Rowe-Smith broke the deadlock just 12 minutes into the game.

Arsenal captain, Pierre Emerick-Augbamayeng, doubled the lead 15 minutes later before Bukayo Saka sealed a dominant first half performance with a third six minutes to the break.

Tottenham pulled one back late in the game through South Korean attacker, Son Heung Min.

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, was full of praise for his team and thanked the fans for sticking with them in hard times.
