Arsenal returned to type on Saturday afternoon, suffering a 1-0 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby.
The Gunners kept the home side relatively quiet at Wembley in the first half of Saturday’s game. However, in the second half, Mauricio Pochettino’s side could have added to their one-goal lead.
Arsene Wenger’s side did have some limited chances in the second period. However, it would be a stretch to say that Arsenal deserved anything out of the game.

On Saturday afternoon, Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game in the north London derby, in a defeat that could prove very costly to Arsenal’s Champions League hopes.
The first real threat on home goal came on nine minutes, as Shkodran Mustafi inadvertently prodded the ball towards his own goal ahead of Harry Kane, only for Petr Cech to save and put the ball out for a corner kick. Tottenham’s Eric Dier headed well wide of goal on 14 minutes from a corner kick. .......Read more here.....

It’s last been in 2014 that Arsenal managed to beat their north London rivals away.
The last win over the neighbours was recorded at White Hart Lane and Gunners now have a fine chance of ending the run at the national stadium which has thus far been a fortunate ground for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Arsenal won their last nine matches at Wembley and are most certainly looking to make it a perfect ten.
Gunners head over to lock horns with fifth-placed Tottenham high on confidence following a morale-boosting 5-1 win over Everton last time out, which saw the January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang open his account for his new club. .......Read more here.....

On Saturday lunchtime, Tottenham host Arsenal at Wembley in a crucial north London derby.
The home side are fifth in the table. However, they are just a point behind fourth-place Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot. Mauricio Pochettino’s side drew 2-2 at Liverpool last time out. However, they needed a stoppage-time penalty kick from striker Harry Kane to rescue anything from the game.
The draw means that the home side are now undefeated in their last seven Premier League outings, although three of their last five league games have finished in draws. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a superb display to defeat Tottenham 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in the north London derby, as goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez gave the Gunners victory on Saturday afternoon.
Arsenal had the first attempt on goal on five minutes. Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez combined well, before the former fired over the bar.
Tottenham hit back soon afterwards, as Petr Cech produced a comfortable save from England striker Harry Kane. The visitors threatened goal again on 16 minutes, but Laurent Koscielny was on hand to stop Dele Alli after the midfielder had taken on Mustafi. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane ‘may be risked’ in next weekend’s north London derby against Arsenal, according to England boss Gareth Southgate.
Kane pulled out of the Three Lions squad for international friendlies against Germany and Brazil. The striker has just returned from injury and there were suggestions in the media that the striker was not in fact injured.
However, Southgate disputed that fact by telling the media: “Harry Kane – I knew he was in trouble because he stayed down – Harry Kane doesn’t stay down. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s chances of a top-four finish this season were handed a blow on Sunday, as the Gunners suffered a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham in the north London derby.
The home side made a lightning quick start and had the first effort on goal with less than a minute on the clock. Dele Alli found Harry Kane, who advanced towards goal and fired an effort through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s legs, only for Petr Cech to get down well to deny the Spurs striker.
The home side were also had the next attempt on six minutes. Christian Eriksen curled in a corner from Spurs right and Tobey Alderweireld headed just over the bar. .......Read more here.....
