EPL Season 2016/2017

A draw is sometimes a fair result that leaves both sides happy. Sometimes, it leaves both sides disappointed and ruing the drop of points. The North London derby at the Emirates was more of the latter where the 1-1 score line was a fair result but left both sides frustrated. Arsenal had a great chance to show their intent in title race and go top but missed out. For Tottenham, it is a case of more dropped points in their quest to challenge the top four.

Arsenal fluff their lines…again!

With their season starting strong – just the opening day loss to Liverpool being the blot, Arsenal have once again raised hopes of a Premier League title. But in their biggest audition to announce their credentials, the Gunners started little apprehensive and were on the back foot initially. But they slowly started dominating things controlling the play from midfield.

Theo Walcott almost put them ahead with a shot that crashed again the post but overall the Gunners looked under lesser control than in their other games. And they needed an own goal to go ahead. Spurs would consider themselves unlucky as a Mesut Ozil free-kick was glanced past Hugo Lloris by their own defender Kevin Wimmer, three minutes before the interval.

Kane proves his worth

The downfall in Tottenham’s recent fortunes coincided with Harry Kane’s injury. The forward was out of action for seven-weeks but returned against Arsenal, a side that he enjoys scoring. And true to those expectations, he equalized for the visitors just after half-time from the spot. Laurent Koscielny’s tangle with Mousa Dembele resulted in a penalty duly converted by Kane.

Kane looked short of match fitness – obvious fact considering that he was out for so long – but looked dangerous on the ball. It will be a welcome sight for Mauricio Pochettino who would need his marksman to be on target with his Champions League and Premier League fortunes threatening to derail.

Spurs hold on with relative ease

After the goal, it was all Spurs as they looked to go for full points than the hosts. Christian Eriksen forced Petr Cech into a fine save in the closing minutes, that could easily have been their winner. The Gunners showed a lot of grit but they did not possess enough quality to unlock the mean Spurs defence.

A point each is a true result of how things went today. This leaves Arsenal in fourth spot at 24 points – two points off new leaders Liverpool. Tottenham are three points further behind in fifth place and are still the only unbeaten side of the Premier League.
