Welcome back to yet another trip down memory lane, as we look back at one of the many Premier League encounters between bitter rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. The North London counterparts were both battling it out for 4th spot in the top flight, and as this game proved, there was very little to separate the sides – although you could sense that Tottenham Hotspur were a team on the rise.
It’s always fun to take a look back on years gone by, especially when it comes to Arsenal. While the last few years have been questionable, the Gunners are largely considered to be one of the most successful English clubs of the modern era. As such, they’ve been involved in some fascinating matches, with this clash against Middlesbrough from twelve months ago being one of them.
It’s always nice to take a trip down memory lane, especially when it comes to football. As fans, we can often get so caught up in the trials and tribulations of supporting our team in the present day, that we forget to stop and smell the roses. Obviously, sometimes there are no roses to be found, which is why looking back on days gone by can be such a wonderful release.
While there’s plenty to be stressed out about if you’re an Arsenal fan in 2018, it’s always worth remembering that there have been some good times celebrated by the club in years gone by. We’ve seen trophies being lifted, last minute goals being scored, and a whole lot of victories over Tottenham Hotspur.
With that being said, it’s also interesting to take a look at the club’s recent history in order to analyse how far they’ve come in the span of twelve months. So then, let’s take a short trip down memory lane to April 5th, 2017 when Arsene Wenger led his Arsenal side to their first victory in over a month against London rivals West Ham United.
