There were also six arrests for public order offences - at least two of which are believed to be Arsenal supporters who lit smoke canisters during the match.
Alexandre Lacazette subsequently put the hosts 3-2 up before Lucas Torreira added Arsenal's fourth.
Spurs fought back, however, as Eric Dier glanced home a header from a Christian Eriksen free-kick on the half-hour mark.
Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley feels Arsenal manager Unai Emery is not afraid to take tough decisions, after the Gunners' 4-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. "They are going to play at home, with a lot of fans and we know that all the matches in this championship are different and very hard".
"Now I'm thinking about the match on Wednesday in Manchester", Emery said when asked whether this was his most significant win so far.

"But above all it is three points, like against Bournemouth".
"We are happy and enjoying [ourselves]".
The unrest was not restricted to the stands as the two sets of players had to be separated following Dier's equaliser on a feisty afternoon in north London.
"The ref said he gave me the yellow card because it was because of me that the whole thing started".
"Today he was working alone, I don't know if he's OK for Wednesday", Emery told a news conference on Monday.
"There are a couple of players who are going to play less and less minutes, and have less and less influence at this football because they're not on the journey he wants to go on".
"He dealt with enough egos during his last two years at Paris Saint-Germain to last him a lifetime and that can not have been enjoyable, but Emery is at a club now that will allow him to follow his own path and it means every player needs to step up. It wasn't because of that we lost".
