It was a 2-0 defeat to Portuguese side Sporting CP (via two stoppage-time goals) on Sept. 13 that ended Tottenham’s unbeaten start in all competitions, before Antonio Conte’s side respond with a 6-2 victory over Leicester. Saturday’s north London derby not only saw Spurs beaten by Arsenal, but also outplayed to a degree that will almost certainly have left Conte seething.

Group D remains eminently winnable for Spurs, who have three points from their first two games. Sporting sit top of the group on six, but four games remain, including the return fixture in north London on Oct. 26. Eintracht Frankfurt have thus far beaten Marseille (away) and taken a hammering by the Portuguese (home), leaving their two most difficult fixtures (Tottenham and Sporting away) for the second half of the group stage.
In-form players to keep an eye on
Despite some (minor) frustrations over Tottenham’s rather defensive style of play under Conte, it’s worth noting they’ve only failed to score once all season (the loss to Sporting). Harry Kane leads the way in the Premier League with seven goals, including one against Arsenal, on the heels of Son Heung-min’s hat trick against the Foxes prior to the international break. Finally off the mark for the season and locked into a starting spot for the time being with Dejan Kulusevski battling a thigh injury. Richarlison scored his first two goals for Tottenham in the home win over Marseille, but the Brazilian has since gone cold without a goal or assist in three straight games (all starts).
