    Premier League LIVE! Tottenham v Arsenal

    Probable Lineups:

    Tottenham (4-1-4-1): Lloris, Walker, Vertonghen, Kaboul, Naughton, Sandro, Lennon, Paulinho, Bentaleb, Eriksen, Adebayor

    Spurs are not having the best week, being thrashed 4-0 by London neighbors Chelsea last weekend before a Europa League 3-1 home defeat to Benfica.  Tim Sherwood will however need to galvanize his side for the visit of Arsenal, who were themselves knocked out of Europe.  Adebayor will look to score against his former side as he should lead the line to the expense of Roberto Soldado.  Eriksen could also make a return to the Spurs midfield to provide some much needed creativity.

    Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Flamini, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Cazorla, Giroud

    Arsene Wenger was left fuming after Jack Wilshere’s injury whilst playing for England and now Mesut Ozil will also be out after sustaining a hamstring knock when they were knocked out of the Uefa Champions League by Bayern Munich during midweek. The Gunners haven’t beaten Spurs in their last five visits to the Lane but will need to break this streak if they are to continue challenging at the top of the Premier League.  Flamini and Arteta will start in the middle while Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Podolski flank Olivier Giroud.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    This fixture is usually an eventful occasion, but this one in the 2008-2009 season tops the lot.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Right Midfield - Alex Oxlade Chamberlain

    During the game against Bayern Munich in midweek Alex Oxlade Chamberlain was Arsenal’s go to guy.  Priced at a reasonable 6.6 in the Official Fantasy Premier League game, the English youngster brought his game to a different level and if he can keep this going Spurs will need to watch out to keep him at bay.
