North London derby dates scheduled 0

Posted on June 22, 2022 by Harry Kettle

While all 38 fixtures are going to be key for Arsenal Football Club in their upcoming Premier League campaign, and while we agree that you have to play all 19 other teams twice at some point anyway, it’s always important to get the North London derby in the calendar.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur is one of the most bitter rivalries at the elite level in English football and this past season, it was crucial once again as Spurs pipped the Gunners to fourth spot – ensuring Mikel Arteta’s men would be playing in the Europa League as opposed to the Champions League.

Arsenal are one of the clubs credited with interest in Leeds United winger Raphinha this summer. The Brazil international was said to be keen on joining Barcelona and had even agreed personal terms with the Catalans, but the two clubs simply haven’t been able to reach an agreement over the transfer fee as Barcelona, still troubled by financial issues, refuse to meet Leeds’ reported valuation of £55 million.

Arsenal must shake off Derby shock quickly 0

Well, it was certainly a shock, what happened at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday evening. Arsenal were beaten by their arch-rivals by 3-0, a result which definitely constitutes a thrashing in such matches.

Without Kieran Tierney and Ben White, manager Mikel Arteta chose to put Cedric Soares on the right defensive flank and shift Tahekiro Tomiyasu to the left, and he named Rob Holding to start in the heart of defence alongside Gabriel Magalhaes. Hindsight is a marvelous thing of course, but it was probably impossible for Arteta to predict the way these two calls of his, along with Paul Tierney as the referee, would affect the match.

Arteta reflects on devastating Tottenham defeat 0

Arsenal knew that a win last night would’ve sealed a return to the Champions League for the first time in a good few years, so of course, the Gunners managed to fumble the bag in the most remarkable way imaginable.

They had a man sent off, lost 3-0 and welcomed rivals Tottenham Hotspur back into the top four race. With just two games left to go, they need to get their ideas together – especially given how big of a momentum shift this is.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke to the media about what went wrong.

All or nothing – a brief look at the Derby 0

Arsenal are set to face arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Spurs’ shiny new stadium tonight (Thursday), in what will surely be a fiery affair. The North London Derby always is, of course, but this time there’s arguably more at stake in the contest than has been the case for many years now.

It’s been a long time since the Gunners last played in the Champions League, whereas Spurs made it into UEFA’s elite club competition in four of the last five seasons. It seems the time has come for the tables to turn on that front, but Arsenal must make sure they don’t slip up now.

Arteta looks ahead to mammoth Tottenham showdown 0

After months of waiting for this rescheduled game to finally take place, Arsenal will go toe to toe with bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur tonight in the North London derby. A victory here, in Spurs’ backyard, would hand the Gunners a place back in the Champions League – a place they’ve been trying to get back to for quite some time.

Mikel Arteta knows how important a fixture like this is and while they’ll still be in the driver’s seat with a defeat, momentum is everything at this level.

Prior to kick-off, Arteta spoke with the media about the magnitude of the game.

No pressure 0

It’s not an overestimation to suggest that Thursday marks one of the biggest games in Arsenal’s recent history. Mikel Arteta, who recently received a new contract to extend his stay as manager, has been able to build a young squad that is hungrier than ever before to break back into the Champions League – something they’ve been missing in the last few years.

The midweek game in question will be the rearranged North London derby that goes down at Spurs’ home ground. Thankfully for the Gunners, the pressure on their shoulders has decreased slightly as a result of Antonio Conte’s men being unable to get all three points against Liverpool, even if just getting the draw was enough of a motivational push in the eyes of some.

Arsenal to compete for Ruben Neves 0

According to a latest report coming from Sky Sports, Arsenal have put the name of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves at the very top of their list for the upcoming transfer window. One has to assume it means the top of the list when it comes to midfielders, ahead of the likes of Arthur Melo of Juventus in whom the Gunners still hold an interest; after all, the absolute priority this summer will surely be a new striker.

Three Arsenal games rescheduled including North London derby 0

The chaotic nature of the final run-in is always bound to create a few headaches, especially at the Premier League level. With a parade of clubs having just a handful of games left to play between now and the end of the campaign, we’re beginning to enter ‘do or die’ territory.

Today, as per Arsenal.com, we’re able to provide confirmation of three fixtures that have been given a brand new date and kick-off time – including the rescheduled North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

Given how the top four race is shaping up, that could well be the game that decides who gets Champions League football. No pressure, lads.

The value of Monday Night Football 0

Following what proved to be an intriguing international break, Premier League football returns this weekend with a whole host of fascinating fixtures to work our way through.

Arsenal will have to wait until they get back into the mix as on Monday Night Football, they’ll square off with Crystal Palace – and Gunners legend Patrick Vieira who is now in charge at Selhurst Park.

However, before all the excitement of MNF, Arsenal will get the chance to see how their rivals fare with tough tests of their own.
