It’s the best time for the neutrals to see this game of huge importance at the top end of the Premier League table; it’s a super Sunday.
Arsenal is neck-to-neck with Tottenham in second and only separated by goals, with Tottenham sitting above the Gunners. Arsenal completed a double over Spurs last season with a 3-1 win at the Emirates and a 2-0 win at the Tottenham Stadium.
The Gunners have had a better start to the season on points than last season, but fans still have doubts about the football, with Mikel Arteta still tinkering with tactics. Four wins and a point at home to Fulham have Arsenal on 13 points compared to 12 last season.
Tottenham is having a mind-blowing season under Ange Postecoglou. The former Celtic boss has transformed the football at Spurs, and fans are excited. They expect a better performance this time against the Gunners.
Tottenham now plays free-flowing football. They score lots of goals and defend better. Players like Destiny Udogie, Yves Bissouma, and Pape Sarr are having a new lease of life under their new manager, and fans can’t get enough of their stars.
There’s no Harry Kane this time, but Tottenham can rely on Heung Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski. Richarlison found the back of the net for the first time in the league last weekend to turn the game around at home against Sheffield.
Arsenal has lots of game-changers. Leandro Trossard came off the bench for the injured Gabriel Martinelli, and the Belgian fired home the winner to hand Arsenal their first win at Everton since Arsene Wenger left the club.
Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegard, and Gabriel Jesus were all on target alongside Trossard in the Champions League in midweek, and they would hope to bring the form to this fixture against Spurs, who had the whole week to rest and prepare.
Historically, north London derbies have always tilted towards Arsenal, but Harry Kane made the difference for a good period before Arsenal turned things around over the last few fixtures. Mikel Arteta has enjoyed great derby days as a player, and as a manager, Postecoglou would have his taste on Sunday.
