Premier League Table as of today September 23, 2021.
Both teams need a crucial win, Tottenham Hotspurs is the better side with Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son ready to win the match for spurs. However, Mikel Arteta’s side still continues to struggle with a lack of goals. The only two wins they had came from Burnely and Norwich City; two of the worst teams in the premier league.
Arsenal won both games by just one goal and it seems like there is lack of Chemistry among Arsenal forward. Bukayo Saka continues to be impressive from the wing however, the coach is playing him on the wrong side just to accommodate Nicholas Pepe who is having a tough time adjusting to the premier league since his €79 million moves from Lile.
Nicholas Pepe transfer fee; In August 2019, Arsenal paid a record fee of €79 million (£72 million), eclipsing the previous record of €62 million for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to sign Nicholas Pepe from Lille.
If Arsenal continues to struggle to score, the match may go to Tottenham Hotspurs.
The Spurs have won 3 matches out of 5 times that both sides have met, with one draw. Who do you think will this match?
