The Spurs XI Poch must pick for North London Derby
Sunday’s instalment of the North London Derby, which is our Fixture in Focus here at FootballFanCast, could be the most significant in years, with just three points separating Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table.
But there’s no doubting who enters this fixture in better form. Whilst Arsenal have won all but three of their games since the opening day of the season, the others being draws, Spurs haven’t tasted victory since the start of October – when they famously beat Manchester City at White Hart Lane.
Spurs have kept their end of the bargain defensively but even so, extra measures must be taken against an Arsenal attack that has accumulated 17 goals in their last five games, including multi-goal thrashings of Ludogorets and Sunderland.
With that in mind, and considering they’ll be travelling to the Emirates Stadium, we at FootballFanCast see a defensive (but not negative) starting XI as Spurs’ best chance of victory.
