Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal, Premier League Gameweek 28: Open Thread

white hart lane Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal, Premier League Gameweek 28: Open Thread

Today’s match between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal is arguably one of the biggest Premier League matches for the next few weeks especially if you consider the race for the Premier League title to be over.

Unusually, Tottenham is the clear favorite in this match. Gareth Bale is in the hottest form of his career and of any striker in the division. Arsenal have been inconsistent and unconvincing against their opponents, so a home win for the Lilywhites looks more plausible than usual. But alas, let us not forget that this is a derby where anything can happen. Unpredictable may be the word of the day.

Arsenal starting XI: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Monreal, Ramsey, Arteta, Wilshere, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud

Tottenham starting XI: Lloris, Vertonghen. Dawson, Assou-Ekotto, Walker, Lennon, Parker, Sigurdsson, Bale, Dembele, Adebayor

Follow the conversation about the game in the comments section below with fans from around the world.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
