What a result! COYS!!!
Terrible game, mistakes mistakes and more mistakes. Not helped by two offside goals, the 1st one wasn't even a foul.

Best players Sissoko and Sanchez, worst players Eriksen and Dele. Onto the next, COYS
The offsides were so marginal and hard to spot that I won't complain about those. But it certainly wasn't a foul for which they were awarded the free kick. Two min earlier when Cech saved Eriksen's shot into the post and we didn't get the corner, then that free kick against us, was two very unfortunate decisions which ended up having a massive impact.

I agree that Sanchez and Sissoko were our best two but Pochettino's predictable (and wrong) line-up played straight into Wenger's hands. Our two full-backs are not good enough in that formation against top teams. They are toothless going forward, which meant Arsenal won the midfield and our forwards never got into the game. The defending is also nearly non-existent, in particular on Trippier's part. If Sanchez hadn't been as outstanding as he was, Trippier would have been even further exposed.

A derby game is not the time to be cautious. In the past Walker and Rose have been the difference. Aurier and Rose would have made a difference now. And if Kane and Alli weren't fully matchfit, at least Son should have started. On current form Winks should probably also have started ahead of Dembele, like he has been.

Sanches is one hell of player you got, he is so composed for his age
PS. Kane should also have had a penalty in the 2nd half. Even Ian Wright agreed on that.
The game was calling out for a player like Winks to play forward balls. Sissoko, as good as he was going forward, you can tell he has an awkward touch and his footballing brain is almost nonexistent for a professional player. He needs the link up with Aurier, half the time he picked his head up Tripper was nowhere near far forward enough to create any good counter attacking opportunity, and there was even a point where Sissoko played a through ball towards the byline for Tripper who had already tracked back to receive a backwards pass instead.

Could this be the end of Rose? Walker got dumped for Chelsea, and he then left in the summer in a strop. I know this is punishment for Rose's summer outburst and perhaps it could be fitness, and Davies' good form. But as a top manager, you have to be able to understand the importance of playing the right players in the big games; Rose should have played.

Eriksen and Alli got marked out of the game, which made it even more essential for forward passes and a bit of creativity from Sissoko and Dembele. Winks came on too late at 60mins, as Arsenal were already settled on defending.

As good as we are and Poch has been, we got to learn how to approach these big games. We had be unable to beat Arsenal at Emirates; even once when we were 2-1 up and they had 10 men, we still drew the game. There's a lot of learning to do, and I hope Poch really does learn from these mistakes.
+1
Spot on! Unfortunately, I think Rose is heading for the exit.
Better deal than Walker; go after Tierney / Sessegnon / someone of the sought and I'd be happy.
Great article on tomorrow

Two things to Arsenal's advantage; They're at home and they will be desperate not to lose this one.

One thing against them; Spurs is clearly the better side.
My team vs gooners:

------------------------------------Lloris--------------------------------------
------------------Dier--------------Sanchez-------Verty-----------------------
-----------------------------------Dembele----------------------------------
-Trippier---------------------------Winks------------------------------Davies--
------------------------Eriksen-----------------Dele---------------------------
-------------------------------------Kane-------------------------------------

2-1 Spurs COYS!

Damn this game is being hyped up like mad
and so it should. NLD are probably the most aggressive and end to end out of all the derbies.

Plus lose this and Arsenal (and perhaps us) are out of the title race
I assume you all have seen and heard of Eriksen's masterclass in Dublin last night!
+3
Right lads, assuming Wanyama, Lamela and Dembele are back and playing as they usually did, and no-one else gets injured, what do you think will be our best lineup by say March? The first line-up is against the teams we need to break down, the second is against the top 6:

I'm gonna go

------------------------------------Lloris--------------------------------------
-Trippier-----------------Alde---------------_----Verty-----------------Davies-
--------------------------Dembele---------Winks------------------------------
-Son--------------------------------Dele--------------------------------Eriksen
-----------------------------------Kane------------------------------------------

----------------------------------Lloris------------------------------------------
-Aurier------------------Alde-------------------Verty-----------------------Rose-
----------------------------Wanyama-----Dembele-------------------------------
-Lamela-------------------------Dele-----------------------------------Eriksen--
----------------------------------Kane-------------------------------------------

COYS!
No Sanchez, Dier or Sissoko?
Missing Sissoko is a given if everyone in the squad is fully fit; but missing Dier is unforgiveable!

He's been very impressive this season so far and is set to captain England again tomorrow night. Dier is a must in the team.
Who would you play him instead of in this formation? Wanyama was imperial last season, and Dembele is so crucial to us. I think, with the exception of the Palace game, he has got a bit comfortable and could do with being dropped.
Palace game for Dier? What about the blinder he played against Real Madrid covering Toby when he got injured?
For all of last season, I berated Dier's complacency and felt he had gotten comfortable, but this season he seems to have gotten some hunger back.

Dembele/ Wanyama will struggle to get back into the team, especially come March when Dier/Winks become fully fledged England internationals.

Our team is ever evolving and the number of options we have are starting to look really really good.

Poch will most definately still use a 3 at the back formation as well considering we spent 45m on a CB this summer.
+1
Pretty lucky win, our players looked knackered. Break coming at a good time COYS
+1
The whole team seemed lethargic, even those players who didn't play on Wednesday. Good debut for Gazzaniga. Well taken goal by Son. But imo Dier was our best player on the pitch.
Wonderful article:

Speaks with so much heart. I don't think he will stay forever(as all good things come to an end eventually) but hopefully he is still here going into the next decade.

Good job on winning against our main rival. :D
