Arsenal returns to Premier League action with a dominant 4-0 win against PSV Eindhoven. The return of the UEFA Champions League at Emirates Stadium came after a six-year absence for the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta’s team celebrated their homecoming with a clean sheet and four goals. They are now focusing on the North London Derby.
Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has kept the team together in the aftermath of Harry Kane’s departure. After five matchdays of the 2023-24 Premier League season, they have only dropped two points out of a potential fifteen.
Spurs appear to have it all figured out even without Kane, as they prepare to play North London rivals Arsenal, who have also amassed 13 points by this time.
