The international break is over, and the premier league is back!
One of the big games we are looking forward to is the London Derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
Arsene Wenger’s side are still sitting sixth on the premier league table, four points behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side ahead of the weekend games.
And as far as Arsenal’s team news is concerned, France international Olivier Giroud is the latest player injured after sustaining an injury while playing for his national side in the international break.
The talented player won’t be playing against Tottenham, and Alexander Lacazette will definitely start as the lone striker, with the duo of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil forming a partnership behind to support him.
Although Mustafi is getting back to full fitness and is in contention for the Saturday game, Arsene Wenger is expected to start the trio of Koscielny, Monreal and Mertesacker in the heart of his defense.
With Xhaka and Ramsey taking care of the center of the park and Cech in-between the sticks for the gunners, here is Arsenal’s most likely 3-4-2-1 starting XI vs Spurs.
GK – Cech
DC – Monreal
DC – Koscielny
DC – Mertesacker
ML – Kolasinac
MC – Xhaka
MC – Ramsey
MR – Bellerin
AC – Alexis
AC – Ozil
FC – Lacazette
