Tottenham Hotspur is currently four points ahead of Arsenal on the Premier League table and there’s nothing more satisfying for Arsenal fans to know that them beating their arch rivals on Saturday will be bringing more misery to a wounded team that has lost its last two matches. So let us take a look at the two points to note ahead of the North London Derby.
ARSENAL CAN START DREAMING OF FINISHING THE SEASON IN THE THIRD POSITION
Tottenham Hotspur has 60 points while Arsenal has 56 so if the gunners get all the three points tomorrow, Spurs will be only one point ahead of Unai Emery’s men who will have an easy run after the Manchester United game. Tottenham Hotspur is usually inconsistent in the last months of the season so losing to Arsenal will not be the last game that they lose this season.
So Arsenal will need to keep its head up and try to win their next matches.
UNAI EMERY HUGELY NEEDS THIS WIN
Arsenal appointed Unai Emery hoping that he could take them back to the UEFA Champions League and as well as improving their performance against top six sides. The gunners have beaten Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea at home this season and also came close to beating Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium in their unbeaten run but the game ended in a 1-1 draw. But all these matches were played at home.
Arsenal hasn’t beaten a top six side away from home since 2015 and this is an embarrassing stat that should be ended this season by Unai Emery this season so that he could show everyone that he has brought back the lost confidence to the squad of the gunners.
