North London giants Arsenal are aiming to maintain their perfect home record in the Premier League this season ahead of the visit of Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday lunchtime. The Premier League leaders have won three out of three home games this season and they can make it four out of four home games by beating Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsenal had won all three league games before they entertained Fulham at home in a London Derby. They were tested by the Cottagers especially at the start of the second half on the way to a 2-1 win. Arsenal should have scored in the first half of the Fulhamgame which they dominated as the two London teams went into the half-time interval with no goals. Brazilian star Gabriel Magalhaes then made a mistake at the back to give Fulham the lead at the expense of his Arsenal side. In-form Serbian striker AleksandarMitrovic robbed him of the ball before finding the back of the net. Arsenal had to show character to win the game thanks to the goals from skipper Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Magalhaes. Gabriel was able to score the winning goal late in the game to atone for his error and help his team to a comeback victory in the derby.
For their third and last home game, Arsenal recorded the same 2-1 score against Fulham at the expense of Aston Villa. Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli scored for the Gunners, while Brazilian substitute Douglas Luiz scored for Villa. All the goalscorers were Brazilians.
