Arsenal Stay Press Convention: Mikel Arteta on Aubameyang’s absence, Saka’s health and Spurs


Mikel Arteta will face the press after his side’s 2-1 win over Tottenham in the Emirates North London Derby.

The game had been controversial even before the start when it became known that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had been removed from the Arsenal starting line-up for disciplinary reasons.

As soon as the game started, the Gunners dominated, but found themselves back after Erik Lamela’s cheeky start.

However, they struck back shortly before Martin Odegaard’s breakthrough, after the excellent Kieran Tierney did a good job.

After a foul by Davinson Sanchez, Arsenal won the game in the second half with a penalty from Alexandre Lacazette.

A dramatic draw still had time to send Erik Lamela off for a second yellow card as the Gunners held on to victory despite a late goal for Harry Kane that was ruled out for offside.
