5 things that helped Arsenal beat Tottenham 3-1 today

Arsenal won against Tottenham today in the first North London Derby of the season. 

Arsenal dominated the early starting of the game as they scored after just 12 minutes. Bukayo Saka created space on the right to slot the ball into the Spurs box but Tottenham's defense line was weak.

Arsenal played well today against Tottenham. Well, there are five things I observed that helped Arsenal win their clash against Tottenham today. 

1. Granit Xhaka maintained huge faith towards their coach Mikel Arteta due to how much he trusts him (Xhaka). 

2. Arsenal have finally found a solid backline under Mikel. One thing Arsenal was lacking at the beginning of this season was a stable defense, their defense was bad.

But during the clash against Tottenham, Arteta made decent changes in his backline with Ben White and Gabriel.

3. Mikel Arteta played Takehiro Tomiyasu Arsenal’s backline and the Japanese defender was found reliable for the Gunners. 

4. Mikel Arteta made the best decision by starting Saka at the right time and he proved fruitful by been the most effective attacking for the Gunners. 

5. Tottenham’s midfield needs restructuring after Chelsea and Arsenal won them greatly this season. 

6. During the game against Arsenal, I observed that Harry Kane’s mind is elsewhere and Arsenal players used that as an advantage to win them. 

7. Tottenham players were selfish in today's match as every forward wants to score a goal by all means without the help of others. 

I hope Arsenal maintains their defensive line ahead of their next match.
