Arsenal missed out on the chance to go into the international break top of the Premier League standings, and could well find themselves down in fourth place if results continue to go against them today after being held to a far from attractive 1-1 draw in a disappointing London derby.

Tottenham came to the Emirates today and lined up in a 5-3-2 formation, a decision which seems to have caught Arsenal completely off guard.
