Mikel Arteta is set to face the press after Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham in their final pre-season fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Despite being a ‘friendly’ the game was play with all the intensity and venom of a regular North London Derby, with five yellow cards being shown in the game.

The Gunners had a decent first half and hit the post through Alexandre Lacazette, but were lucky not to be behind as Spurs hit the post themselves through Dele Alli, while Son Heung-Min forced a fine save from Bernd Leno.

The hosts then went on to have the better of chances in the second period hitting the woodwork through Alli again, before Son evenutally afput them in front after some suspect defending.

It wasn’t the greatest of ends to the warm up for the Premier League season, and Arteta will have plenty of concerns ahead of the opener against Brentford next week.
