The long waited North London Derby is almost here with us and Arsenal will face Tottenham Hotspur in a match that many are looking forward to due to its implications for both clubs. A win for Arsenal gets them UEFA Champions League football and winning for Tottenham Hotspur gives them a chance of a top four finish.
And so we take a look at the predicted lineup to face Spurs with all eyes on Eddie Nketiah who has been on form for a while now.
PREDICTED ARSENAL LINEUP TO FACE TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
TEXT: Ramsdale, Tavares, Gabriel, White, Tomiyasu, Xhaka, Elneny, Martinelli, Odegaard, Saka, Nketiah
Aaron Ramsdale won over the no. 1 goalkeeping spot from Bernd Leno and he has never lost that spot as he has continually throughout the season put on great performances.
There has been rumours that Ben White might be back despite Arteta saying he is a doubt and so we expect the back four to consist of Tavares, Gabriel, White and Tomiyasu.
Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka seemed a bit of an odd pairing at first but they have improved the gunners in the past few weeks.
Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka who also Arteta called a doubt for the game will likely be in the starting squad that plays against Tottenham Hotspur. So Arsenal’s attacking three will consist Martinelli, Odegaard and Saka.
Eddie Nketiah will have all the spot light on him as this is his change to start a North London Derby and with all different speculations on his future, he will wish to make an impression.
