TL;DR news on Tottenham vs Arsenal at August 26, 2023

Despite his frustrations over Holding's red card, Arsenal are unable to appeal what was two separate yellow card incidents. All eyes will be on the Arsenal attack, with Eddie Nketiah expected to start once again due to his exceptional form. Playing a pivotal role in the team's fine form since the end of February after his return from a hamstring issue, the Argentina international was not included against Arsenal due to a hip injury. However, Spurs soon took charge of proceedings, notably helped by Rob Holding's red card, and that meant it was Arsenal under pressure with all the action at the opposite end of the pitch. He wasn't able to draw level with the Liverpool star, however, with Conte withdrawing the player and Kulusevski late on as Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn were introduced. Following their impressive performance at Anfield, Gary Neville is also backing Spurs to beat Arsenal. The memes would never end should Arsenal falter and Spurs still fail to capitalize, but something feels different about this squad right now. While Tottenham is definitely the underdog to take fourth place, all arrows at pointing up right now.
