Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspurs in a crucial game for both teams
The two North London teams are currently dangling in the mid-table. Tottenham after a good start to the season have dropped of in the last two games.
Arsenal vs Tottenham
Arsenal comes into the game after two consecutive wins in the two previous fixtures having lost the first three. Mikel Arteta will hope to see the good run continuing.
Meanwhile, it is the other way around for Tottenham, who started the season strongly winning three games in a row including one against Manchester City. However, Spurs have dropped off in the last two games, losing 3-0 away at Crystal Palace and by the same scoreline at home to Chelsea. Nuno Santo won the manager of the month for August.
Arsenal does not have any injury issues for the game and will have a fully fit squad. No player is suspended too for the Reds of North London.
Meanwhile, it is not the case with the white half of North London. Spurs will miss Steven Bergwijn through an ankle injury and Ryan Sessegnon with a hamstring problem. Other than that Spurs have a fit squad with no players suspended.
Tanganga returns for Spurs after been suspended for the Chelsea clash due to his red card against Palace.
Tottenham has not won at the Emirates since the November of 2010.
Struggle for goals
Arsenal has found it hard to score in the league although they have scored free flowingly in the league cup. They have scored just twice in the league so far. The Gunners’ attack has been misfiring in the league with only Aubameyang and Odegaard having found the net.
Spurs also face a similar problem. The lily whites have scored three goals so far in the season. All three coming in each of their first three games. Son tops the scoring chart for Tottenham with two goals to his name. Captain, Harry Kane, is yet to score and has not yet fully settled.
Fans could be in for a team as both teams fight for supremacy over the North London territory.
