It only served to find its way to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who teed up the young Gunners’ midfielder for a tap-in.
The mistake was the direct consequence of an impressive Arsenal press high up the pitch and Arteta was left delighted after seeing his side’s work in training pay-off for what was a landmark victory.
Talking to Match of the Day after the game, the Spaniard said: “I’m very pleased, we haven’t won here in 10 years so it’s very good to get the result.
“It’s a gift because we were pressing through with the right attitude and organisation so you force mistakes.”
They are now within touching distance of a UEFA Europa Conference league place, albeit with Spurs holding a game in hand.
Arsenal have now racked up a number of impressive away wins the season having claimed victory against Leicester and Manchester United throughout the campaign.
Arteta next takes his side to face Crystal Palace next Wednesday.
