Why Spurs will be shaking over Arsenal scoring stats

There is little doubt that Arsenal are the team in form as we prepare for the latest installation of the local rivalry between us and Tottenham, who may have started the current season well, but have gone off the rails a bit in recent weeks.

In fact the north London derby on Sunday will be exactly five weeks since the spuds last tasted victory in any competition, having been knocked out of the EFL cup, losing and drawing in the Champions League and being held three times in the Premier League.

The only thing keeping them from doing a lot worse has been their defensive solidity. With just five goals conceded they have easily the best record in the league so far but that has started to unravel as well and they could have been hit for loads in the shambolic European defeat this week.

So I would not be surprised if Pochettino and his players were having nightmares about facing the Arsenal attack this weekend and the stats reported by Metro suggest they would be right to do so.

The statistical report shows that in three key areas the Gunners are doing better this season than in the previous four campaigns. We are completing more passes per game (499) which shows just how fluent our football is right now, but it is at the sharp end where games are won, so that fact that we are scoring more goals per game (2.3) with the highest conversion rate (15%) tells you that Tottenham are in trouble.

The question is, will Arsenal keep up this level of attacking performance in the derby?

    Of course Arsenal will keep up the level of their current attacking performance in this North London derby match against Spurs.this Sunday. Arsenal have no choice but to do that if they want to keep the pressure on for the sole mission of overtaking Man City who have been sitting tight on top of the table for quite some weeks now.

    I think Tottenham Hotspur will bid their time in this game and not play an open attacking game on the onset of the match, but play with caution defending against the early assault of the Gunners’ attacking machines. The Spuds will rely on their defensive solidity and thus park the bus. Then counterattack using Harry Kane as their pivot to inflict havoc against the Gunners. But thank God, the Gunners’ defences of their 2 DMs of, Coquelin and Xhaka and their defense-line will be equal to the task, and thwart off any threat by the Spuds’ counters trying to threaten Petr Cech at our goal mouth.

    At the final whistle of this game, I can only see Spurs received a bashing of 3-0 goals defeat at the hands of the Gunners.

      We said that about man utd last year when we lost 3-2 at trafford, we need to be focused and play to the best of our abilities, not worry about who is playing in the other team.

        These are my sentiments exactly! There are memories of times in the past whereby The Arsenal was talked up so much during the days leading up to a match where we are supposed favourites, only for us to come up short for one reason or the other, or for the wrong Arsenal to turn up on the day (oh how painful that can be). That’s not our wish, tho! I like our current confidence, and I just hope for it to be backed with discipline, diligence, and a calm head on the boys’ shoulders, without it turning into over-confidence. Here’s to an awesome performance and a delightful victory tomorrow!!! Cheers gunners!!!
