The North London derby was a good chance for Arsenal to show some fight and intent by getting a victory over Tottenham. Not only would that have drastically increased their chances of making the top 4, it would have also put a major dent in Spurs’ ambitious push for the Premier League title.
Instead, what Gooners got was more of the same. Arsenal once again looked lost against a side that are well organized, whereas Spurs got to emphatically snuff out the twenty-plus year curse of St. Totteringhams Day.
Both clubs are heading in very different directions currently, and nowhere was this more evident in a picture that made it to one of the newspapers.
The picture shows Dele Alli and Mesut Ozil in the background during Harry Kane’s penalty run-up. Alli looks ready to pounce in case of a rebound, a true representation of Spurs’ hard-working mentality.
Ozil, on the other hand, seemed least bothered as he just stood with his hands on his hips, summing up the recent state of affairs at Arsenal.
