Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham
The lead up to the North London derby on Saturday was dominated by talk of a power shift towards Tottenham. Having long been in the shadow of their bitter rivals, Spurs were now seen as the dominant force who would no doubt inflict more damage on Arsenal and heap more dismay on their supporters. Several UK newspapers ran articles in which distinguished journalists and former players were asked to name a combined XI from the two squads and not many Arsenal players featured in any of those teams selected. The Gunners, it seemed, didn’t have a prayer.
