What a wonderful game of football we witnessed on Sunday between Arsenal and Tottenham.
The visitors have given plucky performances in the past at The Emirates.
But their showing on Sunday had the sort of confidence and composure hitherto unseen at Arsenal’s new stadium.
Tottenham really kept The Gunners on the back foot with solid defending, imperious displays from Dier and Alli in the midfield, and the sort of precision up top that will have Tottenham fans licking their lips.
And, after a year or so of rooting out the dead wood, Mauricio Pochettino now has a young, lean and hungry squad that must wish the international break wasn’t upon us.
It will be fascinating to see if Tottenham can kick on from here because they are within striking distance of the top four.
And with Chelsea miles off the pace, perhaps this is Tottenham’s best chance in a couple of years to get into The Champions League.
Although injury has deprived us of the services of N’jie and Son Heung-min for big chunks of the season we are still getting a good idea of Tottenham’s best XI.
