The battle in midfield
It has been a quiet start to life in the Premier League for Thomas Partey, so a strong showing today would be timely.
The Ghanaian has the ability to boss a game, but we have only seen it in bursts so far.
By contrast, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has shone for Tottenham this season and he was one of the standout performers when the two sides met in December.
Reguilon vs Saka
The battle between these two speedsters promises to be exciting, not least given the form they are both in.
Bukayo Saka has been Arsenal’s best player this season, while Sergio Reguilon has lived up to the hype around him generated by those back in his native Spain.
If Arsenal are to open up Spurs this afternoon, Saka is the man most likely to create that moment of magic — but not if Reguilon has his way.
