Premier League Matchday 6’s Sunday action wraps up with a doozy as Arsenal host Tottenham in the North London Derby. Both teams are far from where they want to be in the table as it stands, with the Gunners entering the day in 13th and Spurs in 10th. Arsenal have the lowest amount of goals scored in the league with two in five games, and Spurs aren’t far behind with just three goals. While the talent in attack is there, the production simply hasn’t been ahead of this heated affair.
Arsenal: There’s no question Arsenal have been quite awful, but a victory here could be the turning point. The Gunners have won their last three games in all competitions, including two in the Premier League. No goals conceded in those three games which was a must after allowing nine in their previous three league clashes. Now, it remains to be seen if this defense has found its form, but they are still surrendering way too many looks at goal. Against a talented Tottenham attack, they must keep their shape in the back, be the first to win crosses and keep tabs on Harry Kane all game long.
Tottenham: Three straight 1-0 wins to start the league season feel like months ago now. Tottenham have lost back-to-back PL games by a 3-0 scoreline to both Crystal Palace and Chelsea. The attack has been solid in cup play, but they are lacking some sharpness in the league. They have just three shots on goal in their last 180 minutes of league play, and against Arsenal they must be quick to transition to attack and trty to get Dele Alli more involved. Expect some changes from Nuno Espirito Santo and don’t be shocked if he goes a bit attacking by playing Alli and Gio Lo Celso.
