Arsenal 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur – Premier LEague – 1st September 2013

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur - Emirates Stadium

Despite spending exactly £0 in the transfer window so far, Arsene Wenger oversaw a deserved victory against his big-spending rivals.

Olivier Giroud netted early doors, courtesy of a deft finish after a fine team move and while the Lilywhites pushed to get back on level terms, it was the Gunners who had the far better chances in the first half, with a superb display Hugo Lloris keeping his side in the game.

After the break, AVB’s men improved but couldn’t find a way past an extremely disciplined Arsenal side, with sub Mathieu Flamini looking like he had never left north London.

    Congratulations to the lads for showing guts on the pitch today!

    A fabulous victory!

    Spurs indeed “BALE” leaving Aresnal to “RULE” North London!

    However, it is not about simply beating Spurs, it is taking all teams in the Premiership and conquering. Wenger has to buy world class players to raise the standard of the entire team to the next level, he must not let this opportunity pass us by.

    Arsenal deserved the victory,Spurs were woeful and Walker epitomised this totally.You have to question AVB’s tactics at times,bringing on Defoe when there was no link between the midfield and attack was dis

    To me, it was a decent result from Arsenal but really one I should have seen coming.

    I predicted 1-2 Spurs, but totally forgot the fact that the Arsenal team have, on the whole, been together for at least a year.

    Conversely, half of the Spurs team just set their feet though White Hart Lane a month ago.

    You could tell it in the performances. Spurs were trying hard, but Arsenal were much more confident on the ball.

    Don’t question AVB’s tactics until November, at least…
