Arsenal's Predicted Lineup Against Tottenham
Tottenham will host Arsenal this weekend. This could be how Arsenal will line up for the upcoming North London derby.
The second North London derby of the season as the two clubs battle for Champions League qualification spots. A victory for Arsenal will see them move to a point behind Tottenham while a victory for Tottenham will make things extremely challenging for Arsenal to catch up.
Arsenal emerged winners in the previous fixture held at the Emirates. Given Arsenal's worrying away form, this fixture will be a battle for both teams. Here is how we can expect Arsenal to line up against their rivals in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Arsenal's first choice goalkeeper Petr Cech is expected to miss the North London clash, after going off injured in the match against Everton. Having played all the Premier League games this season, Cech could be replaced by David Ospina, who has been left to play in cup games as well as European fixtures.
The Colombian will be eager to be on the pitch in the highly-anticipated match. However, given that he is short as compared to other goalkeepers Arsenal have, it may pose a challenge for him when defending set pieces. The lack of game time for him is also worrying as fans wonder if he is good enough for this crucial clash against North London rivals.
