Tottenham Hotspur will take on their local rivals, Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night with revenge on their minds after suffering a 4-2 loss at the hands of the Gunners earlier this month. Mauricio Pochettino will make a whole host of changes to his side in midweek and might opt to rest some of his star players ahead of the busy Christmas schedule in the Premier League.
Spurs will stick with their favoured 4-3-3 formation with Paulo Gazzaniga set to start in between the sticks while Lucas Moura spearheads Pochettino’s attack up top.
4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Arsenal
Paulo Gazzaniga will feature in goal for the away team despite shipping in 5 goals in 5 appearances for Spurs this season. The Argentine keeper would hope to improve on that record and help his team come away with a win from the Emirates on Wednesday.
Mauricio Pochettino has only Toby Alderweireld fit to start this game at centre-back, and the trio of Juan Foyth, Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez are significant doubts for this match. However, there is a chance Sanchez might recover in time to partner the Belgian at the heart of the Tottenham backline.
Kyle Walker-Peters could get a rare opportunity to start at right-back for Spurs while Ben Davies operates as the left full-back in the absence of Danny Rose, who should be a part of Pochettino’s bench on Wednesday.
Pochettino might opt for the midfield pair of Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko. The duo would be expected to work hard in midfield and establish Tottenham’s dominance at the centre of the pitch. The trio of Erik Lamela, Dele Alli and Heung-min Son could operate ahead of them as they look to cause some problems for the Arsenal defenders in the attacking end of the pitch.
Christian Eriksen might come off the bench if Spurs need him during the match.
Lucas Moura could be given the responsibility to lead the lines for the away side as Pochettino might rest Harry Kane for this midweek clash. However, the English forward should be available on the bench and might come on in the second half if required.
