Arsenal vs Spurs Match Preview

Spurs will be hoping to end Arsenal’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season when they travel to the Emirates for the first North London derby of the campaign this weekend.

Pochettino’s side, who sit ninth in the table, are without a win from their last three matches in the league, but returned to winning ways in the League Cup earlier this week, beating Nottingham Forest with a final scoreline of 3-1.

There are no fresh injuries for Spurs, with only Kyle Walker out as he continues to recover from abdominal surgery.

Ryan Mason may have done enough to earn himself a place in the squad, having scored his first goal for the club during their Capital One Cup.

Meanwhile, the home side are unbeaten in the league, but they lost 1-2, the week they took on Southampton in the League Cup.

After a run of three draws in the Premier League, the Gunners clinched a 3-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend, leaving them fourth in the table.

Nacho Monreal, recovering from his back injury and Mathieu Flamini, who is suffered a groin injury are in line for a return.

Several players remain out though, with Yaya Sanogo, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott still missing.

Recent form:

  • Arsenal: W D D D W
  • Spurs: W W L D L

Possible starting lineups:

  • Arsenal: Szczesny, Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil, Sanchez, Welbeck.
  • Spurs: Lloris, Dier, Kaboul, Chiriches, Rose, Capoue, Dembele, Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela, Adebayor.
