Tottenham vs Arsenal
The weekend’s Premier League action starts at Wembley as Tottenham take on Arsenal.
Is the balance of power shifting in north London?
Until recently Tottenham were being spoken about as possible title winners.
However, following successive defeats to Burnley and Chelsea, will Spurs even finish the year in the top four?
The Lillywhites remain third in the league, however they are just four points above Arsenal.
That’s after Arsenal smashed Bournemouth 5-1 on Wednesday night.
Unai Emery: Arsenal’s tactics vs Spurs
Can Arsenal overtake Tottenham in the table?
That possibility will be a helluva lot more likely if the Gunners can beat their north London rivals on Saturday.
Following the Bournemouth match, Unai Emery confirmed that his job now is to work out Asenal’s tactics to beat their eternal enemies.
He also admitted that, right now, Tottenham are better than the Gunners:
We need to take the opportunity like today, these three points. After we can have and get an opportunity like Saturday.
It’s one team that, at the moment, are better than us in the table.
I think it is very difficult there, to win, but it is a good test, a great test and a positive test.
It was a good performance (against Bournemouth) and we can be proud of every player. Here at the Emirates we were speaking about the fact we have a lot of matches to show the fans a complete match with one good result with the three points but with some difference between them with the goals, like today.
