In the previous derby played at Emirates, arsenal emerged Victorious hence they came to this game hoping to extend that.
Fortunately, the first half has given them the confidence they need as an own goal from goalkeeper Hugo loris and another long range one from martin Odegaad puts them at pole position in the premier league table standings.
The first goal came when Bukayo Saka's effort was parried by keeper loris into his own goal at the 14th minute to the excitement of the arsenal fans.
Odegaard Doubled the lead at the 36th minute from outside the box sending Arsenal fans into ecstasy.
With Manchester city having lost yesterday to their neighbors Manchester united, arsenal will now open an eight points lead at the top of the summit if the game ends in their favor.
Do you think it's time for arsenal to lift the much coveted EPL trophy after a lengthy dry spell? Feel free to share your thoughts and comments on this on our comments platform.
