This is the moment that “international break” transitioned to “North London Derby” week. We went from a void of discussion topics to “Omg! Did he really just say that?

With the two teams clashing Saturday afternoon at the Emirates, this is the very definition of “talking trash,” “throwing shade,” “shots fired” and “bulletin board material.
