Despite a strong first half against Chelsea last Sunday, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team lost 3-0 to the Blues and the defeat sees them in seventh. Spurs had topped the table before the international break, starting their season with an impressive 1-0 victory over Manchester City.
Tottenham boss Nuno conceded after their Chelsea defeat that the team has issues. He said: “Problems is the situation, the momentum we are in.
“Problems is what we suffer during international break. Problems is the absence of players. Problems is levels of performance [and] we concede goals from set-pieces, that we played the first half so good [against Chelsea] and were not able to sustain. So many problems that we have to solve.”

For Arsenal, Kieran Tierney is in doubt though should start regardless, while Granit Xhaka is set to return from a three-game ban in the north London derby.
And for Tottenham, Ryan Sessegnon and Lucas Moura remain out with injuries and Steven Bergwijn is unlikely to feature due to an ankle problem.
Arsenal: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang
Tottenham: Lloris; Royal, Romero, Dier, Reguilon; Hojberg, Skipp, Alli; Son, Kane, Lo Celso
Arsenal – 6/5
Draw – 11/5
Tottenham – 23/10
Arsenal may have winning momentum heading into the match but their rivals will outclass them, especially if they come out with as much vigour as they did in the first half against Chelsea. Arteta has bounced back this season only against bottom-half clubs and will see the Gunners still aren’t living up to their ‘Big Six’ reputation. Arsenal 1-3 Tottenham.
