Arsenal sent a message to the rest of the Premier League after an impressive display of power and glory at the West Ham United’s London Stadium this evening by winning 5-1.

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen both scored twice while Heung-Min Son was also on target as Tottenham strolled to a 5-0 home win against Swansea at White Hart Lane. Here are five talking points.

Mauricio Pochettino says he has used a much-needed week off to focus on “the bigger picture” with his players and to stress the importance of being mentally ready to play at full intensity every three days.

Mauricio Pochettino says it has been difficult for Moussa Sissoko to get into a rhythm at Tottenham and show his best form after three months of interruptions.

Mauricio Pochettino admits Tottenham were a little hasty in selling Gylfi Sigurdsson to Swansea, conceding that the Iceland international would have been a “perfect player” for his squad.

Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane’s latest contract extension shows the striker is motivated by a love of Tottenham rather than money.

Mauricio Pochettino admits he is concerned about Erik Lamela’s hip injury, which is not improving as quickly as expected, while centre-back Toby Alderweireld is still not certain to return against Swansea on Saturday.

Two heads are better than one, the saying goes – and that’s certainly been the guiding principle behind the establishment of Blacksmiths FC.

Sean Cronin says Wingate & Finchley’s free-scoring run of form has lifted the pressure that burdened their defence earlier in the season.

Hampstead & Westminster’s men were involved in a seven-goal cracker on Sunday – but the entertainment factor was scant consolation as they lost their final game before Christmas.

Mark Stephenson grabbed his second goal in as many games but Islington & Camden Under-14s had to settle for a share of the points as they drew 2-2 at Haringey.

UCS Old Boys, Hendon and Haringey Rhinos all suffered home defeats in the Herts/Middlesex leagues on Saturday.

Haringey Borough are just three points outside the play-off spots after two home wins extended their winning run to three matches in Ryman League Division One North.

Belsize Park suffered their first defeat of the season on Saturday as they lost their London Division Two North West showdown with title rivals Old Haberdashers in Regent’s Park.

Goalkeeper Megen Lynch hailed Spurs Ladies’ midfield trio for their “perfect combination” of defensive and creative work after the Lilywhites completed a league double over Swindon Town.

Hendon chairman Simon Lawrence believes the club have started to replicate the kind of performances they put together during their 2014-2015 promotion challenge.

Mornington Chasers Running Club have revamped their Regent’s Park 10k Series and the next edition of the race will take place this Sunday.
