1. Good Lineup
Arteta went with a good 4-2-3-1 lineup today that featured quality players like Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Smith-Rowe, Odegard, Saka, and Aubameyang. Not long before the Coach's decision paid off as Arsenal started scoring which is something their fans had been waiting for this season.

The partnership and link-up play from the defense to the attack was on point today which made the game difficult for Spurs. Aaron Ramsdale also made some great saves to deny Spurs attackers in both halves.

2. Good Substitutions
Arteta saw that the game was going well so he decides not to rush into making early substitutions. The Arsenal gaffer made his first substitute in the 81st minute when Granit Xhaka who picked up a knock was replaced by Sambi Lokanga. The introduction of the Belgian added more solidity to the Arsenal midfield which help them survive Spurs's late threats.
The gaffer also made good late changes when he replaced both Saka and Smith-Rowe due to their tiredness with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Nuno Tavares.
Nevertheless, Arteta will be aiming to keep this winning streak when they play Brighton in their next game.
