The one game no Arsenal fan wants to lose, the one game spurs fans have forgotten what it feels like to win. Wenger will want to keep that sequence going, while taking one step closer to a place in the top four and the day St. Totterington’s is commemorated.
Arsenal are unbeaten against Tottenham in four games now and Nacer Chadli’s goal in last September’s meeting at the Emirates was the first time the Gunners had been breached since the meet at White Hart Lane in the 2012/2013 season.
Arsenal will attempt a sixth League win on a row on Saturday at White Hart Lane but will be without Alexis Sanchez for the second game in a row, although several reports have suggested that should the Chilean pass a late fitness test, he would make a surprise comeback against Spurs.
Welbeck has yet to play this year since the win at Upton Park on the last day of 2014, being out with a hamstring injury but has now made it back after a four week absence.
Arsenal’s attack faired excellently in the absence of both forwards in the 5 – 0 win over Aston Villa last weekend but they will provide more vigour and variety to ensure Wenger’s pen hovers long into Friday night in making his selection for the game.
Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott have returned with a bang to the team, both scoring in consecutive games now and while the question had been about where they would fit into the team with Alexis prospering in connection with Sanit Cazorla, Wenger will now have to decide on how to fit this blockbuster of attacking talent at his disposal.
Having shone in his last game before the injury, which was a London derby, he might just be inspired enough to put up a comeback show that shows everyone his value to the team. Wenger could still decide to stick with Giroud, given it is an away game that may require the use of his physical strength as an outlet but there should be some minutes given to Danny.
on the team news…
“Welbeck is back in the group. Apart from that we have the same squad available as last week.” Wenger said while speaking to Arsenal Player.
Having said this, here is how Wenger is expected to line-up his side against Spurs.
With an expected quality Arsenal bench, it is expected that Arsenal should cruise to a 3-0 victory at the Emirates.
