Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur PreviewTottenham Hotspur has made massive improvements to their squad and are now set to contend for a top four finish. The all but sealed deal for Gareth Bale to Real Madrid has provided them the luxury to splash the cash. The likes of Christian Eriksen and Lamela are the latest to have made the switch to the club.
Arsenal has been the total opposite to Tottenham. They have had an exodus of players leave the club and to date just two summer signings. Wenger’s team has been hit hard by injury. Let me rephrase that, Wenger’s team has been infected with injuries. It would seem almost all their critical players are on the doctor’s table. It’s bemusing to see the team’s lack of activity in the market. In a game of such huge rivalry, Arsenal is in for a rude awakening, because the likes of Soldado, Paulinho and Dembele will be looking to run riot over the wounded Arsenal team.
Arsenal has put their opening league defeat to Aston Vila behind them and has put together some decent performances in both EPL and Champions League. Players have so far stepped up and much more will be asked of them in this fixture.
Spurs has won their two league games by a penalty scored by Soldado, so it shows that the goals are not quite flowing. The team will take some time to gel with the new faces around, but I expect them to become lethal given time.
Prediction – Tottenham Hotspur wins
