Arsenal's only misfiring by this stage of the season is their performance at Old Trafford. Against Manchester United, Mikel Arteta's men did not look their best and suffered a 1-3 defeat. After that game, the Gunners were successful on the road against Zurich, winning 2-1 (Europa League group stage). Then Arsenal traveled to visit Brentford and returned to winning ways in the EPL, scoring three unanswered goals. Thanks to the latter result, Arteta's team retained their lead in the league – the Londoners are now one point ahead of their closest pursuer.
One of the closest pursuers is Tottenham. Antonio Conte's side have lost two points in the current EPL campaign, but so far the Spurs are undefeated. The draws came against West Ham United (1-1) and Chelsea (2-2). The London club's last opponent was Leicester City. At certain moments of the game Tottenham had a hard time, but Son made the difference in the final stretch, scoring three goals. In this game, the Spurs defeated the Foxes with a score of 6-2.
