Preview: Arsenal vs Tottenham 0

Posted on September 29, 2022 by Harry Kettle

Domestic football is back this weekend and the first game kicking off the Premier League slate on Saturday lunchtime is none other than the North London derby.

It’s one of the fiercest rivalries in English football, as we all know, and it’ll serve as a huge test for the Gunners at such an early point in the campaign.


Arsenal fans couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season than the one they’ve gotten with the Gunners currently sat top of the Premier League with a win in the Europa League to go alongside it. Mikel Arteta is putting all of the right pieces in place to make this club contenders again and even though this is an intimidating match-up, it’s not one that Arsenal should fear – especially at the Emirates.

The ongoing international break gives national teams a chance to work on a few things in what will serve as the final big test before they reach the FIFA World Cup later this winter. We all know the timing of football’s greatest show in Qatar isn’t exactly ideal, with domestic football being the biggest casualty – alongside the horrendous human rights abuses, of course, but the ‘beautiful game’ doesn’t seem to want to talk about that.

As a result of the festivities getting underway in November, we’re going to be seeing plenty of leagues across Europe endure a really tough schedule in the week ahead in order to get as many fixtures out of the way as possible heading into the new year.

We always knew that Gabriel Jesus was going to be someone who could make waves after coming over from Manchester City and thus far, that’s exactly what he’s done. The Brazilian clearly felt like he had a point to prove upon arrival and with three goals and three assists across the month of August, he wanted to make sure he got off to the proper start.

The 25-year-old is the kind of player who never stops running for the ball and as long as he’s situated in the starting XI, the Gunners faithful should feel very confident about their chances at success between now and May.

While there may not have been a whole lot of action on over the weekend in the Premier League, Arsenal made sure they’d be entering the international break in style as they moved back to the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Brentford.

The Bees simply weren’t able to get going with the Gunners putting them to the sword, ensuring they did a good job of bouncing back from the disappointment of losing to Manchester United. After the full time whistle had blown, manager Mikel Arteta took the time to reflect on what a big moment this was in their campaign.

Following on from the death of Queen Elizabeth II, many football games across England were postponed in order to help pay tribute to Her Majesty. The worry was that it would extend to this weekend but thankfully for football fans, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to be the case.

As per, the Gunners’ clash with Brentford on Sunday will go ahead as planned. The worry was that there would be too many policing issues given that the Queen’s funeral will take place the day after, but that problems have seemingly been resolved with the fixture now taking place at 12pm.

Following on from the postponement of last weekend’s fixtures, many fans have been curious to see whether or not that trend would continue as the nation’s mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II continues.

The death of Her Majesty rocked many in the country but a lot of supporters have questioned why the decision was taken to postpone games when it could’ve been seen as a great outlet for many who were struggling.

This weekend, though, the majority of fixtures will probably be going ahead in the top flight, although the same may not be true for Super Sunday.

The Premier League has confirmed its decision to have the matches which were supposed to take place this weekend postponed, out of respect for Queen Elizabeth II who passed away on Thursday.

The official mourning guidelines for the sporting events scheduled for the weekend did not make postponement compulsory, but rather left the decision in the hands of each organizer as they see fit. In the case of matches being played, they suggested minutes of silence, playing the national anthem and the players wearing black armbands, but the Premier League obviously feels it would be disrespectful to proceed with the matches as planned.

Arsenal fans were riding a big high heading into the weekend as a result of their side’s five-game winning streak to kickstart the new Premier League campaign. Unfortunately for them, they weren’t able to extend it to six as they fell to a 3-1 loss against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The result takes the Red Devils up to four straight wins and while it does put a loss on the Gunners’ record for the first time this season, they still find themselves one point clear at the top of the table.

Arsenal came into their clash with Aston Villa off the back of four consecutive wins to kickstart their Premier League campaign. Many felt as if this was another winnable fixture but as we’ve come to learn about the Gunners, they rarely make it easy for us all.

Alas, they were able to dig deep when it seemed as if the tide was beginning to turn, and as a result they got the 2-1 win and maintained their spot at the top of the table.

After the game, Mikel Arteta spoke about how important the three points could prove to be.
