The target on Arsenal’s back has got bigger and bigger, as Antonio Conte had noted on Friday, but hardly anyone has been able to hit it over the first half of the Premier League season. Certainly not Conte’s Tottenham, who suffered another stinging derby-day reverse.
The 3-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium last October was bad or maybe it was just explicable, more expected. This one was worse, mainly because of the first half, when Arsenal called the tune so completely and put the game to bed with two goals – the first on a calamitous Hugo Lloris handling error; the second a sweet Martin Ødegaard finish.
