Sunday afternoon saw Tottenham Hotspur head to the Emirates Stadium to face off against Arsenal and whilst few expected it to be an easy game, there was good reason for confidence ahead of the tie given our recent form and knack for digging in and battling to a result.

Whatever manager Mauricio Pochettino’s game plan was for the game, it was either wrong and not carried out by the players as few can disagree the hosts largely played us off the park – dominating the telling statistics and helping themselves to a relatively comfortable 4-2 victory.

A four-minute spell starting on the half-hour mark turned the game on its head and Spurs saw themselves take a 2-1 advantage having battled back from their early opening goal, but it wasn’t enough as we failed to hold on to it, or show the necessary improvements to build on it, and Arsenal came back strongly in the final 45 to take the points.

What could go wrong largely did and whilst some fans expected it, others bottled the frustration and disappointment and accepted it as one of those days, what matters now is how the side bounce back on Wednesday evening when we host struggling Southampton.
