Arsenal have come in for some strong criticism in recent years. Criticisms of the Gunners include that they are too soft and need more bottle.

However, for all the criticism aimed at Arsenal, one positive still remains for the Gunners, that is their home form in the Premier League. That is highly encouraging for Arsenal fans, especially with the north London derby against Tottenham this weekend.

Very strong at the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal have won their last ten home games in the English top-flight, while also finding the net at least twice in their last eight games on home soil. That is an impressive home record for any team. Even Premier League leaders Manchester City cannot match that record.

Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez put himself back into the race for the Premier League Golden Boot on Tuesday night with his brace against Sunderland in a 2-0 victory.

The win was not only vital for his team and kept them in the race for the Champions League spots, but also rather unexpectedly put him back in the running for the Premier League’s top scorer.

Going head-to-head with rival on Sunday

Ironically, the two goals put Sanchez just a goal behind Everton’s Romelu Lukaku on 23 goals. The Toffees forward has struggled for goals of late and has failed to score in his last four Premier League outings.

Arsenal’s display in the 2-0 north London derby defeat at neighbours Tottenham on Sunday was a worrying one. Not only did the team seem to lack quality, they seemed to lack heart and desire, which is unacceptable in a derby match.

It is hard to say, but the Gunners outclassed by their neighbours. However, the Tottenham players just seemed to want the win more than Arsene Wenger’s side. The first half was relatively even, but the home side could have been two goals up by half-time.
