ARS 3-1 TOT: The Only Reason Why Arsenal Won Tottenham Hotspur In Today's Match

Arsenal won Tottenham Hotspur in today's North London derby, that's one win in two London derbies for Mikel Arteta. Arsenal were completely dominance against Tottenham Hotspur in today's match, it was a well deserved victory for the hosts.

Arsenal got away with all three points against Tottenham Hotspur despite Nuno Espirito Santo's side being superior. Here's the only reason why Arsenal won Tottenham Hotspur today.

Nuno Espirito Santo's Failed Tactics

Nuno Espirito Santo has now lost in two consecutive league games before today's encounter. He changed his tactics for today's occasion and it turned against him. Nuno Espirito Santo played with a 4-3-3 formation in today's match rather than the 4-2-3-1 formation. His players played more defensively than they played in attack, this gave Arsenal's attackers the room to easily get behind their defense.

The atmosphere changed for Tottenham Hotspur after Dele Alli left the pitch to be replaced by Bryan Gil. Bryan Gil was the missing piece in Tottenham Hotspur's attack, just few minutes after he came on Heung-Min Son pulled one back for the visitors. It was a brilliant set up by Sergio Reguilon but it was already too late to get back on level terms.

Nuno Espirito Santo got his tactics completely wrong in today's match, he'll have to make the best decisions when choosing his starting lineup next time. Dele Alli never had a bad game he played in the left midfield position which was obviously not his playing position, Nuno Espirito Santo will have to fit the players in their preferred playing positions.
