November has been an excellent month for Arsenal, but a poor one for Tottenham, as the Lilywhites are now closer to the bottom of the Premier League table than the top.
That Tottenham bubble sure did burst quickly.
With the timing only football can produce, heralds of a North London power shift have fallen silent as Spurs have only won once in their last five league games.
The team that was supposed to be miles ahead of Arsenal and rocketing towards a bright future are now four points below the Gunners in the Premier League table.
Spurs PL Form:
❌ Man Utd 1-0 Spurs
✅ Spurs 1-0 Palace
❌ Arsenal 2-0 Spurs
❌ Spurs 1-1 West Brom
❌ Leicester 2-1 Spurs
But there's meant to be a power shift in North London???? pic.twitter.com/gheCVoAMa2

Tottenham are closer to the bottom of the Premier League table than they are to the top. Since losing 1-0 to Manchester United at the end of October, Spurs have won just once: a 1-0 win over struggling Crystal Palace.
They’ve lost to Leicester, drawn at home against West Brom and, of course, flopped horribly in the North London derby. The lesson to be learned here is that nothing is certain so early in the season.
Talk of a power shift and of them asserting their new-found superiority over Arsenal was always going to be premature with six months of the season left to play.
This, of course, applies to Arsenal fans as well. As amusing it is, it’s far too soon to be telling Spurs fans to mind the gap in the table.
Four points is nothing when there are 24 games left to play. What should be clear is that the gap between the two sides is not as large as some would have you believe.
While there’s every chance of Spurs finishing above us again, talk of a power shift is best saved for when they’re well and truly better than we are.
