Two words: Moussa Sissoko! He has taken to Tottenham's midfield like a duck to water. He’s become one of the fan-favourites and there are now chants being written about him. His darting run from the right flank against Inter Milan, which led to a pre-assist, was a thing of a beauty.
Eric Dier, who also travelled to Italy, is also likely to play against the Gunners. He was sent in the 87th minute of the game, just to shore up the defence to protect Spurs’ slender lead in the tie.
Inter had been doing a pretty good job keeping this Spurs side at bay until Cristian Eriksen came on in the last quarter of the game. From there on, a dire game thus far changed its complexion completely.
The midfielder, too, must be feeling good about his fitness after a well-deserved rest for most parts of the Inter game, not to forget, he had also put in one a hell of a shift against Chelsea, bagging two assists in the process.
He should be playing alongside Dele Alli, who opened the scoring against Chelsea in a 3-1 rout and set up Eriksen in Milan for the only goal of the match. His tricks and flicks are more than a handful against any defence and Arsenal's wobbly backline will be wary of his threat.Published 01 Dec 2018, 14:03 IST
