Mixed Fortunes For London Rivals

Tottenham v Liverpool
Spurs are going to have to really pick themselves up if they are going to finish top 4 this season after a bruising loss to Liverpool. Ok, I know, Liverpool are title contenders for this season, however, Spurs did not like anything remotely similar to title contenders as they went down by 2 at home to the Reds. Despite Salah, last years fantastic goal scorer, looking strangely a shadow of his former self, Tottenham barely looked liked scoring. So, I guess, you could say that both Kane and Salah were not wearing the right boots tonight, as neither had any impact on the game.
Newcastle 1 - Arsenal 2
The Gunners had, frankly, an insipid first half away at Newcastle, however, the replacement of Guendouzi with Torreira sparked life into the Gunners, as Xhaka fired home a free kick after 48, and, Ozil added a rare goal after 57.
Despite a late consolation goal from Kieren Clark for Newcastle, the stats show that Arsenal dominated the possession, shots, and the result.
