Arsenal could not handle Son Heung-min but it was his decision that allowed him to play

Tottenham's Son Heung-min were constant thorns in Arsenal's side as they suffered their heaviest defeat to date in the Premier League north London derby on Thursday.

The South Korean star was also fouled four times by Rob Holding, which resulted in him being sent out after 33 minutes.

To end an impressive performance, Son sprinkled salt on Arsenal's wounds by scoring his 21st Premier League goal of the season.

Arsenal had availability issues of their own but had enough resources to field a competitive team.

However, the match was called off after Arsenal made a request to the Premier League in the eleventh hour, citing COVID as a factor.

Later in January, the Premier League changed its rules to avoid similar requests for postponement.
