Spurs vs Arsenal: NLD Review

After months of waiting for fans to return to stadiums, 2,000 lucky Spurs fans were allowed to watch the North London Derby live at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Arsenal came into this game with a bad run of games in the Premier League. A lot of speculation was around the Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta. Fans and the press have been criticising him for losing to both Aston Villa and Wolves in their last 2 EPL games.

However, Spurs have been in-form recently and were top of the EPL table going into this gameweek.

13 minutes into the game and Heung-Min Son attempted a 25 yard curling effort that beat Arsenal goalkeeper, Bernd Leno. Son saw the keeper of his line and it was worth the gamble as Spurs went 1-0 up to their North London rivals.

Spurs played their usual style under Jose Mourinho, sitting back and breaking on the counter attack. Arsenal dominated the possession of the ball but could not break the Spurs defense down. Then on the stroke of half-time, Harry Kane hit a powerful front post strike that beat Leno and doubled Spurs’ lead.

The goal from Kane brought up a milestone of 250 professional goals. An achievement that shows he is the best English goalscorer of his generation.

The second half was a strong, defensive display from Spurs as Arsenal couldn't find a way to score. The game finished 2-0 to Spurs and now have the bragging rights in North London.
