Final EPL Standings After Sunday Matchday Six Games

Tottenham Hotspur traveled to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal in an intensely competitive North London rivalry. Harry Kane and Heung Min Son failed to register a single shot on target in the first 45 minutes of the game, as Arsenal dominated possession for the whole of the first half of the game. Gunners had a number of shots on target as well as off-targets on the other side, however. 

A large and wonderful ball from fellow academy graduate, Bukayo Saka, set up Emile Smith Rowe's goal to give them the lead in the first half. In the ensuing minutes, Arsenal increased their lead through Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, following some excellent counter-attack football in the middle of the pitch. 

Prior to the half-time break, Bukayo made it three by capitalizing on a loose ball caused by Harry Kane. 

Following their hard-fought victory, Arsenal has moved ahead of rivals Tottenham and Leicester City. Having played six EPL games, they are now in 10th place with 9 points. Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are the teams that have risen to the top of the standings. See the table below for the complete EPL standings.
