Arsenal Vs Tottenham Hotspur: Preview, Predicted Lineups, Injury News, Key Players And Odds

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will rub shoulders for the first time in this season. Spurs are scheduled to visit the Emirates for which is going to be the 184th North London Derby. Going with the current flow, this could be another make or break game for Arsene Wenger as Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been flying high this season. Tottenham Hotspur have already got the better of Real Madrid in the Champions League and the way the team is shaping, Arsenal have a very tough task to cut out.

The Gunners have had a very erratic season as they failed to hold on to their positives, following their brilliant fight back against Everton, which they dominated on their way to the emphatic 5-2 victory.

A sense of optimism had started to flow around as the Gunners tamed down Swansea City 2-1 but their hopes were dashed in the following game. Manchester City showed their ruthlessness to propel themselves to victory against a hapless Arsenal side.

Pep Guardiola’s side literally toyed with the Gunners, as the North Londoners lost the match by three goals to one, although the result could have been much more shameful had City players not wasted some gilt-edged chances.

Injury News And Predicted Lineups

Arsenal

Shkodran Mustafi has gained full fitness but this match might be too soon for him to make an appearance. However, he might be included in the squad to marshal the backline. Danny Welbeck will be undergoing a late fitness test before the match while Olivier Giroud has been ruled out for this big match.

Jack Wilshere is back from injury and is in contention for selection.

Cech; Monreal, Mustafi, Koscielny; Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac; Ozil, Sanchez; Lacazette

Tottenham Hotspur

In a major boost Dele Alli, Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm and Harry Winks have started training ahead of the match. Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama are set to miss the match.

Lloris; Dier, Vertonghen, Sanchez; Winks, Eriksen, Alli, Aurier, Sissoko, Rose; Kane, Son

Key Players

Christian Eriksen

The Danish playmaker has been in the form of his life in the recent times. His hat-trick in the World Cup qualifier sent Denmark to the World Cup 2018 and Tottenham will expect him to carry his form in this match. Wenger might need to put an extra effort to stop him.

Alexandre Lacazette

Wenger hasn’t used the French striker in big matches so far and he also started from the bench against Manchester City. A good performance in this match should be enough to earn the trust of his gaffer.

Odds

Arsenal- 13/10

Draw- 5/2

Tottenham Hotspur- 15/8
