Jose Mourinho had a pop at the referees after fuming over a decision to award Arsenal a penalty in the second half.
It came as Tottenham threw away a 1-0 lead to lose to their arch-nemesis at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Spurs had found some form as they looked to mount a late surge for a Champions League spot.
But they are back to square one with a morale-crushing defeat to their biggest rivals.
However, it started so well for the away side after Erik Lamela scored a fantastic rabona goal with their first shot on goal.
That was about as good as it got for the white half of north London, though, with Arsenal dominating much of the match.
Just before half-time, the Gunners were rewarded for their persistence when Martin Odegaard's effort was deflected in.
And after the break, Tottenham could not wrestle control away from their opponents.
As a matter of fact, it got worse as Davinson Sanchez was adjudged to have fouled Alexandre Lacazette in the box.
Michael Oliver pointed to the spot as the Frenchman sent Hugo Lloris the wrong way.
But Mourinho was not happy with the decision to award the penalty and made sure his feelings were heard after the match.
He said: "In the second half we only had space to improve which we did and then it is a question – but an impossible one as they don't speak – for the referee Michael Oliver to answer.
"Probably Paul Tierney too as he was the VAR. According to Kevin Friend, the referee told him he had a clear decision and the VAR does not want to go against.
"What I see from the bench is just a feeling at first. I am 40-50 Metres away. I saw it on the iPad.
"Referees have a difficult job sometimes. I did not complain but when I watch back on the iPad it is what it is.

"If somebody has a different opinion it has to be one of the big Arsenal fans with a season ticket.
"It is the only one I accept as it is the passion speaking. Other than that I don't accept a different view as it is obvious.
"If the players don't do better it is because they can't do better. I belong to the team so I am as guilty for the first half as the players but the best thing is we improve in the second half.
"Players get tired, coaches get tired, maybe referees get tired too. My record with Michael Oliver on penalties with Chelsea, United and Tottenham is unlucky."
