Arsenal Team News & Preview
Arsenal and Tottenham go head-to-head in a much awaited London derby this weekend.
Both sides have been hard to beat in the Premier League and it should be a cracking contest between two good footballing sides.
Arsenal are in supreme form right now and have been unstoppable since their opening day defeat against Liverpool. They have been unbeaten in their last nine Premier League games and have won seven of those.
Arsène Wenger‘s men demolished Chelsea at home earlier this season and will be looking to do the same to Spurs. Furthermore, they have an impressive home record against Spurs and will be heading into this game with a lot of confidence.
The home side will be without five of their first team players for the derby game. Welbeck, Perez, Mertesacker, Cazorla and Akpom are all ruled out with injuries.
Predicted Arsenal Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Coquelin; Alexis, Ozil, Walcott; Giroud
Tottenham Team News & Preview
Spurs are going through a rough patch right now. Although they are just three points behind bitter rivals Arsenal, they have failed to win any of their last six matches in all competitions.
Mauricio Pochettino will be under a lot of pressure here and will know that his side cannot afford a defeat against Arsenal.
The away side have not won any of their last six visits to Emirates and on current form, that run is likely to continue.
The absence of Alderweireld will make their job tougher against a top class attacking team. Furthermore, Kane and Lamela are doubtful as well. Both players have recovered, but they are lacking in match fitness.
Predicted Tottenham Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Davies; Dembele, Wanyama; Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko; Son
