Arsenal vs Tottenham team news
Harry Kane took a knock during Spurs’ 2-0 Europa League win over Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday. While that was a concern for Spurs fans to see him icing his knee on the bench, it should not keep him out of action for the derby.
Gareth Bale got minutes off the bench vs Dinamo so should start today, while Son also got a rest – so expect to see those three lead the line.
Emile Smith Rowe came off the bench in Arsenal’s 3-1 win at Olympiacos. Mikel Arteta will have to decide whether he’s fit enough to start, but a cameo off the bench seems the most likely outcome.
Thomas Partey started and got some good minutes, so Arteta will have to decide between him and Dani Ceballos in midfield.
Arsenal vs Tottenham predicted lineups
Predicted Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Willian; Aubameyang.
Predicted Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Ndombele; Bale, Lucas, Son; Kane.
Arsenal vs Tottenham prediction
Both teams have improved of late, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bale rediscovering their scoring touch while the likes of Willian and Son are proving fine creative assets.
However a mixture of concerns at the back, and Jose Mourinho’s usual tactical plan for such games, means it could be a cagey affair.
