Why Bukayo Saka and Son Heung-min met up days before Arsenal vs Tottenham derby amid fan fury


It's North London Derby week as fans prepare to put their loyalty to their club on the line for three points and, perhaps most importantly, bragging rights. It's a clash that may see the best of both Arsenal and Tottenham for the first time in a while, setting up an enticing tie.

The Gunners have returned towards the top of the game in both the Premier League and Europe, having sustained a title challenge last season. After falling short of landing the main prize, roughly £200million was spent on transfers to help reinforce the squad for another push.

As for Spurs, new head coach Ange Postecoglou has captivated the fan base with results, attacking football and his personality. So far, the games have gone in their favour with four wins and one draw to their name, resulting in 13 points won from a possible 15 on offer.

The Gunners find themselves with the exact same amount of points, keeping in the early hunt for the title with many games to go. The north London derby will likely prove to be the biggest challenge of the new season for both teams, with plenty of tense build-up in the week leading up to it.

There has been some controversy though as both Son Heung-Min and Bukayo Saka have been spotted meeting up on Monday evening. The pair attended Burberry SS24, a fashion show in London that will last for the whole week, with the pair wearing unique outfits.

A video showed them both discussing something, but it was a sighting that led both sets of fans to fume with the derby coming up soon.
