Bukayo Saka and Son Heung-min was the main focus in today’s derby between Arsenal vs. Tottenham in a match that ended 2-2 draw.
This is unacceptable of course, Arsenal have a squad that has being playing together for a while now which should have given them an edge over Tottenham who are just building their team but looks really better at the Emirates today.
With the injuries we’re stockpiling and our inability to convert chances and kill games, it’s becoming a very worrying time for #Arsenal. The result aside, so much about that performance was unacceptable. Our core principles went completely out the window.
Arsenal at times defeat themselves and today should be extremely worrying. Tottenham didn’t only fluke out goals like they’ve done in the past, we also had no control in the second half. I know we played on Wednesday but the body language wasn’t acceptable.
The boss need to quickly address the squad so that they can get back stronger, hopefully the injuries will not keep the key guy away far too long.
Some Of The Reactions After Arsenal Dropped Points Against Tottenham Hotspur
After Arsenal took the lead the second time, it Was Jorginho who gave the ball away and Arsenal got punished for it by both Madison and Son.
The Arsenal Boss, Arteta came to the defense of the Italian player after the game.
Mikel Arteta on Jorginho: “I love him — errors are part of football”, tells Sky. #AFC
“We are all with him, no doubts”.
Sol Campbell on Jorginho’s error in the #Arsenal vs Tottenham game today: “‘Jorginho’s not playing his game. He’s usually getting the ball and moving it quickly, that is his game. He had a chance to pass to Ben White out wide.
“He was scanning and scanning, and he just got in a muddle and they nicked the ball from him. So many goals are scored in the first five minutes after your opponents score. You have to be aware.”
Things To Worry About
Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard all injured.
Gabriel Martinelli, Thomas Partey and Jurrien Timber already injured.
Really bad result, but the performance was the more worrying part.
