Arsenal

Last updated: Mon 02 September 2019 01:42
In Brief

Bad defeat at Anfield saw them drop first points. Tierney, Bellerin, Mavropanos and Holding sidelined. Mustafi close to leaving. Monreal and Elneny already left.

Looking Back

First serious test of season failed, with naïve tactics on visit to Liverpool bringing deserved 1:3 defeat.

Reliance on home games for wins well known, scored 2 goals or more in 10 of last 11 home league games. Also lost just 1 of last 19 Premier League home outings.

Looking Ahead

Coach Emery could be tempted to excite the fans even more in this North London derby and the long anticipated start of the forward tripod Pepe-Lacazette-Aubameyang might be on the cards.

Luiz set to guard personally Kane in this one, with both of them having history of confrontation with each other from years past.

Still without 4 sidelined defenders + Mustafi expected to leave England before end of week. Monreal started first 3 rounds, but he joined Real Sociedad on Saturday, with Elneny also loaned out.

Points of Interest

Complete parity in this North London derby in its last 13 editions – 4 wins each and 5 draws.

Tottenham Hotspur

Last updated: Mon 02 September 2019 01:42
In Brief

Humiliating home defeat suffered last weekend. Eriksen likely to stay. Foyth and Sessegnon sidelined. Walker-Peters and Ndombele failed late fitness tests. Dier fresh concern. Alli set to return.

Looking Back

Spurs were flat and far from impressive when Newcastle paid them visit, with game lost 0:1 in the end. Kane and Son kept getting on each other’s way in attack in this one.

Away form poor, currently on seven-game winless run in away league matches.

Looking Ahead

Coach Pochettino will have Alli back, while main playmaker Eriksen could still leave club before next Monday and his involvement will depend on his transfer situation. Nothing has happened with Eriksen come Sunday morning, so he is likely to play in derby.

Walker-Peters and Ndombele failed to overcome injuries on time for derby, while Foyth and Sessegnon remain in rehabilitation. On top of that Dier got hurt in training and he is deemed doubtful.

Points of Interest

Last season awarded penalties in both league matches vs. Arsenal. Kane converted both spot-kicks.
