Arsenal have completed and officially confirmed the signing of Jonathan Dinzeyi, whose entire football journey so far has been with the youth setup at Tottenham Hotspur.

Though his preferred foot is the right one, he can easily play on either side of the partnership, anywhere in a back three, or as a fullback.

St Totteringham’s Day has been cancelled.

For yet another year, Arsenal have failed to finish above Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, inviting a parade of questions regarding their ability to actually dethrone Spurs as the dominant force in North London.

Given how poor Tottenham have been throughout the course of the campaign, you’d have to think this is a real low point for Arsenal – but it should also serve as real motivation.

Mikel Arteta has indeed instilled a new sense of team play since he stepped into the Emirates dugout, there can be no doubt about that. However, the defeat in the North-London Derby on Sunday has highlighted the same problems the Gunners have been struggling with for a very long time.

Arteta has indeed increased Arsenal’s ability to control games. The high possession percentage from the Derby (62%) backs that up, albeit with a slight reservation given that Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho rarely ever cared about his teams seeing more of the ball. But once again it mostly comes down to individual mistakes.
