Arsenal at Tottenham Hotspur match discussion: The last North London Derby of the season

Arsenal say goodbye to Wembley for another season.

One step forward, two steps back, at least for those of us on the west coast - this game’s not on NBC Sports Gold, but it’s on at 4.30 AM. So I shan’t be watching this game live, because as An Old Person, there’s no such thing as 4.30 AM. That’s when sleep is. That’s what DVR’s are for.

If you are one of the hardy souls that can get yourself out of bed that early (or still be awake from the night before), or if you live in a more amenable time zone, this should be a good game - Arsenal are rounding into something resembling good form, they scored for fun on Wednesday, and they’re healthy. Tottenham also scored for fun on Wednesday, but I suspect that said fun was had more by us than by them; they’re not particularly healthy, and they’re in a kind of unpleasant patch right now.

If Arsenal can make that continue, they’ll close the gap on Spurs to a single, solitary point. I’d like to think that that prospect is more pleasant for the red half of north London than the blue half, and anything that makes life for that half less pleasant is fine by me.
