Belgian Youri Tielemans was the man to take advantage.

He raced forwards towards the goal as the space opened up in front of him.

Xhaka desperately attempted to keep up with the star, but no defender came across to close down the midfielder.

That allowed Tielemans to close in on goal and fire home for his sixth Premier League strike of the campaign.

It was a bad omen for the North London side as prior to today they had lost nine of the 11 games they had conceded first in this season.
