Welcome to another edition of The Nutmeg, the Evening Standard’s weekly football talk show.
Reporters Dan Kilpatrick, Simon Collings and Malik Ouzia are joined by former Arsenal striker Alan Smith to discuss the latest weekend Premier League action and all the biggest storylines on the London scene.
The north London derby takes centre-stage this week as the panel dissect Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Tottenham at the Emirates on Sunday.
Mikel Arteta landed his first win in the fixture as a manager as his bold call to leave out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for disciplinary reasons paid off, but there’s a feeling that Jose Mourinho got his tactics all wrong, with his Spurs side far too passive.
Erik Lamela had quite the afternoon, picking up a red card after scoring an outrageous rabona and there’s a discussion about just where that effort ranks in the pantheon of great north London derby goals.
You can watch the episode in full on Standard Sport’s Facebook page, Standard Sport’s Twitter or on the Evening Standard’s YouTube channel.
