Arsenal will on Saturday face Tottenham Hotspur away from home and it’s going to be an epic game because of the rivalry of these two clubs that has been there for decades. The gunners will be hoping to get all the three points from this game so that they can start making a move to get into the third position.
Tottenham Hotspur will be a tough team to beat because Pochettino will not be willing to see his team lose three matches in a row because if they do, they will have gone from being title contenders to fighting for a spot in the Premier League top four. Arsenal is currently on form because it has won its last three matches but they have all been played at the Emirates Stadium, Unai Emery will be hoping that Arsenal beats Tottenham Hotspur because the gunners haven’t beaten a top six side away from home since 2015.
Tottenham Hotspur has a big match next week in the UEFA Champions League and it’s unclear whether Pochettino will be resting some of their stars because they will probably want to progress to the quarter finals but the North London Derby is also a very important match. But as for Unai Emery, he will use his full squad because they got an easy draw in the UEFA Europa League and getting a top four finish is more important.
Tottenham Hotspur will be without Dele Alli and Eric Dier because they are currently nursing their injuries. Those two missing is a great relief for the gunners because they always haunt Arsenal especially Alli.
Arsenal received good news in their recently released team newsteam news because it confirmed that Laurent Koscielny and Stephan Lichtsteiner are both fully fit to face Tottenham Hotspur this Saturday.
