Arsenal vs Tottenham

Arsenal come into this encounter with a lot of form behind them having gone completely undefeated this season other than their opening encounter against Liverpool. Barring the one clean sheet against Middlesbrough; they have averaged 2 goals per game scored over their last 10 games. With the likes of Giroud, Ozil and Walcott coming into form for the Gunners other than the ever present Sanchez, it gives Arsenal a lot of lethal options up front in order to score. The down side for Arsenal coming into this encounter are some injuries that they face with Monreal, Cazorla, Perez missing out along with long term absentees in Mertersacker and Welbeck. Arsenal will feel this is the best time as ever to take on a Tottenham side out of form and with injuries.

Tottenham come into this game with some serious concerns about form. They haven’t won over their last 7 matches, with only 3 goals being scored during that run; which can’t bode confidence for any side looking for a victory. On top of the poor form, they have several injuries to contend with as Alderweireld, Sissoko, Davies, Lamela, Dembele are going to be out while Harry Kane is going to be in the squad, but it remains to be seen if he will play a part in this game. The problem for Tottenham has been going forward and a patched up forward line will include Janssen, Eriksen, Alli and Son; all of whom have failed to produce any performances not worthy of Tottenham having a chance of victory here.
Arsenal will take confidence that victory here will give them 1st spot in the table again and in the early kick off, one can expect them to play strong especially in front of their home fans where they have remained undefeated in their last 5 games with 3 wins and 2 draws .Arsenal to win.
