The North London Derby

In true NLD style this game had everything.

An unfortunate injury, a penalty, a sending off, coming back from behind, three strikes of the bar and a disallowed goal.

But, it ended with an Arsenal win.

Final Thoughts

Tottenham had every opportunity to head into 5th this evening, but a poor performance and dropping the lead keeps them in 7th.

The visitors were dealt with the blow of losing one of their key men in the first half. Erik Lamela scored a wonderful goal, but in true Lamela fashion, recieved a red card in the second half for one too many tackles.

Arsenal dominated and had plenty of chances, but didn't take them. Their two goals came from a deflection and a penalty. Mistakes from the visitors that were avoided.

Mourinho will be disappointed with the result after a run of five wins in a row in all competitions, but Spurs didn't seem up for it. Once they lost a man, the team started challenging for the ball and having chances. 

Arsenal key players: Odegaard and Smith-Rowe

Tottenham key players: Lamela and Sanchez were the visitors best players (despite giving away a penalty and a red card.)

It is North London Derby day and both teams are looking to get one over on their rivals. With Spurs ahead of their opponents in the league, the Gunners are looking to close the gap and push closer up the table. 

In the return leg at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium that hosted 2000 fans, Tottenham beat Arsenal 2-0, courtesy of Son and Lo Celso.

Tottenham are five points ahead of Arsenal, with a win today they increase the gap plus have the chance to push further up the table and head up a few places in the table.

If Arsenal win today, they will stay in the same position in the league, unless the goal difference in the game is a +4 margin.
