THE TEAM NEWS

ARSENAL

  • Arsenal were outdone by Liverpool 3-1 last weekend and the big games are coming thick and fast as they now face North London rivals Spurs.
  • Unai Emery played a diamond formation in that match but he may tinker with the line-up once again here and bring Lacazette back in.
  • That would mean Willock potentially dropping out of the side as he may be tempted to go with the triple threat of his star attacking trio.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Leno; Maitland-Niles, David Luiz, Sokratis, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Guendouzi; Pepe, Dani Ceballos, Aubameyang; Lacazette

Unavailable: Holding (Injured), Bellerin (Injured), Tierney (Injured), Mavropanos (Injured), Elneny (Out of favour), Mustafi (Out of favour)

Doubtful: Ozil (Illness)

TOTTENHAM

  • Spurs slipped up in a poor 0-1 defeat at home to Newcastle last weekend as their underwhelming start to the season continues.
  • Eriksen, Vertonghen and Aurier's future continue to be in doubt as Pochettino refuses to start the trio until their futures are resolved.
  • Walker-Peters is a major injury doubt for this game and Pochettino may field Sissoko at right-back rather than the out-of-favour Aurier.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose; Winks, Sissoko; Lucas Moura, Lamela, Son; Kane

Unavailable: Foyth (Injured), Sessegnon (Injured), Ndombele (Injured), Walker-Peters (Injured)

Doubtful: Alli (Injured), Dier (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Neither of these North London rivals come into this derby in particularly good form but there are alarm bells ringing at Spurs amid speculation of dressing room unrest. That will be put aside for this crunch clash however and expect another entertaining match with plenty of goals in this one.
