Arsenal vs Tottenham (By: Luke)
After two draws in Premiership, the Gunners managed to get a victory away to Bournemouth last weekend 1:2. Once again, they concede and weren't reliable much at the back, but the side showed great effectivity. They now need to get the win here, to remain in touch with Champions League positions.
Tottenham continued their winning streak with a great performance against Chelsea at home as the Spurs won the game against arch-rivals with a 3:1 result. They were extremely good for most of the match but lowered down the tempo towards the end when they already had three goals lead. They are now in a must-win situation to keep contact with leading Citizens.
Left-back Monreal (7/1) and offensive Welbeck (8/1) are injured. Forward Lacazette (12/5) is doubtful for now. The Spurs will miss central back Sanchez (8/0), defensive midfielder Wanyama (4/0) and midfielder Dembele (10/0), meanwhile offensive Lamela (9/4) and right-back Trippier (11/1) are doubtful for the moment.
It will be really difficult for the Gunners to walk away with a completely positive outcome in this one. Their defensive lineup is simply not at the level to stay reliable for the whole match here. A draw shouldn't be completely excluded, but I still see the Spurs being closer to the more positive outcome here, easy or difficult.
