Tottenham needed a big performance against Crystal Palace this weekend after making a mediocre start to the season and that is exactly what they delivered.
There were no signs of a hangover from an international break as Pochettino’s men played some scintillating football and sent out a statement with their 4-0 thumping.
Arsenal took the field against Watford on Sunday needing a response after victories for Spurs, Manchester United and Chelsea on Saturday.
Things were going according to Unai Emery’s plan in the first half as the Gunners raced into a 2-0 lead at Vicarage Road.
However, the home side responded brilliantly in the second half and managed to score two goals to tie the game.
The result means that Spurs now leapfrog Arsenal in the Premier League table and some Spurs fans were delighted to witness their rivals’ second-half collapse.
There was another touchy moment in the game when Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi let the Watford fans know what the score was by guesting with his hands.
Unfortunately for Guendouzi, Arsenal failed to hold on to their lead and some Spurs fans on social media destroyed the 20-year-old for the gesture.
Arsenal football club. Full of players who don't give a shit. Weak minded players. Weak minded manager. Weak minded fanbase. You're not worthy of us. Mugs.

Spurs Web Opinion
While it is still really early in the season to make big assessments, based on Arsenal’s performances so far, it looks like their away troubles are set to continue this season as well. While I expect Spurs to finish third, Arsenal will likely have another massive scrap on their hands to get into 4th and if they don’t turn their away form around quickly, they will likely fall short once again.
