Arsenal Hammer Tottenham
The first North London Derby of the season took place on Sunday afternoon.
Arsenal would host Tottenham knowing that with that victory they would surpass their London rivals in the table, despite losing their first three games of the PL season.
And, when all was said and done, this is exactly what Mikel Arteta and company. administered.
Arsenal beat Spurs in the first 45 minutes. Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka combined for the first goal, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added a second after 27 minutes.
Then it was Saka’s turn to get into the goals minutes later, adding the 3 of the Gunnersrd of the day with only 34 minutes on the clock.
Heung-min Son recalled one for the visitors later, but it didn’t matter.
Xhaka out for 3 months
An otherwise positive workday was somewhat marred by an injury sustained by Granit Xhaka.
The Swiss midfielder was forced to retire after being caught by Lucas Moura vs Spurs.
Initial reports suggested that Xhaka could be out of service for around 6 to 8 weeks:
Granit Xhaka has suffered an internal ligament tear in her right knee, according to @AndreasBoeni.
The initial diagnosis suggests that you will be unconscious for at least 6 to 8 weeks. #AFC

However, as mentioned above, Arsenal have now provided an official update on Xhaka and it is much worse than 6-8 weeks.
The Gunners stated that:
In addition to injuring his right knee during Sunday’s game against Tottenham Hotspur, evaluations and scans have confirmed that Granit Xhaka suffered a significant injury to his medial knee ligament.
And while they add that Xhaka does not require surgery, Arsenal also reports that their goal is to get Xhaka back in action in three months.
This leaves North Londoners with only injury-prone Thomas Partey, the inexperienced Albert Sambi Lokonga and the rather average Mohamed Elneny as natural central midfield options until what appears to be late December / early January.
