Arsenal march on with their 19-match unbeaten run and they have their new manager to thank for their new-look mentality. He opened the scoring in the 10th minute after converting from the spot.
With thing beginning to boil over on the field, Rob Holding lunged in on Son and conceded a penalty, which Kane buried to make it eight goals in eight North London derbies - matching the amount scored by Emmanuel Adebayor in this fixture during the Premier League era.
Arsenal have lost just once in their last 25 top-flight home meetings with Spurs, with that defeat coming in 2010 as they were beaten 3-2.
Aubameyang had a great chance to double his tally for the afternoon but fluffed his lines as Sead Kolasinac's deflected cross found him six yards out.

Hector Bellerin's perfectly-weighted pass found Ramsey, who touched the ball into the path of Gabon worldwide Aubameyang and he arrowed his strike past a helpless Lloris.
Bellerin nearly gifted Tottenham a third, passing the ball across goal straight to Son, who could not beat Leno with the resulting strike.
But while players and fans celebrated wildly at the final whistle after restoring local bragging rights and climbing above Spurs in the Premier League table, Emery attempted to turn attention to Wednesday's trip to Old Trafford.
