They’ll now be watching the Manchester derby to see what kind of lead they’ll take into next week but prior to that, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about his side’s success.

Arsenal have emerged victorious from the North London Derby today (Saturday), courtesy of goals from Thomas Partey in the 20th minute, Gabriel Jesus in the 49th and Granit Xhaka in the 67th, while Harry Kane only managed to grab a brief equalizer for Tottenham Hotspur from the spot in the 31st. In the 62nd minute, Spurs right wing-back Emerson Royal received a straight red card from referee Anthony Taylor for a reckless foul on Gabriel Martinelli.

The Gunners unsurprisingly dominated the match with 65% of possession and a total of 18 shots, half of which went on target, while the visitors took five, three on target including the penalty.

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.

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 face Spurs and Chelsea competition for Raphinha 0

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.
