The gunners are on an unbeaten run of 17 games in all competitions and the Arsenal fans must be happy that they have not tested defeat since their first two losses against Manchester City and Chelsea. Since those two matches, Liverpool is the only big team they have faced and the game ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to a late equaliser from Lacazette.
Aesenal got it’s 8th win of the season on Sunday after it defeated Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium and the gunners are now in the fifth position on the Premier League table. The gunners have a huge challenge this weekend because they will be facing Tottenham Hotspur and it is going to be Unai Emery’s first North London Derby since he took charge of the gunners in May.
Shkodran Mustafi has played every week in the Premier League matches and it’s probably because Unai Emery trusts him, the German international faced the press after their win against Bournemouth and he spoke of how he believes that they will beat Spurs on Sunday. He says that they will have to bring their “A” game when facing Spurs since it even just defeated Chelsea who earlier beat the gunners at the beginning of the season.
“I think we have to compete. Then, of course, when you want to win against Tottenham you know you have to play at your top level.” Shkodran Mustafi told Arsenal’s official website.
“We did that against Liverpool at home, so we know how to compete, we can compete with everyone and I think that we are looking forward to this game.”
Arsenal fans will hope that Shkodran Mustafi is cautious in their match against Spurs because he is known for always causing mistakes which cost them sometimes, he fouled a Bournemouth player in the last minutes of yesterday’s game, and the supporters have made fun about this on Twitter with some saying that they almost got a heart attack.
