Arsenal vs. Spurs predicted lineups and team news


Arsenal will hope to bounce back from their 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich when they play Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates on Sunday (11am ET kickoff on NBCSN in the United States).

The Gunners were absolutely shambolic in that midweek Champions League fixture and the result almost certainly means that they will miss out on qualification to the round of 16 stage for the first time in 16 years.

That aside, their Premier League form is very good with five wins on the bounce and only two losses in 11 games.

Arsenal have already beaten Tottenham this season in the Capital One Cup third round where Mathieu Flamini’s double was enough to separate the two sides after 90 minutes.

Spurs come into this match on a fine run of their own. They haven’t lost since the opening day of the season and have won five of the last seven league games.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have got their eyes firmly fixed on Champions League qualification and this may be their best chance in years with Chelsea showing no sign of recovery from their slump so far.

Beating Arsenal will close the gap between the sides to just two points and firmly put them in the spotlight as far as the race to reach the top four goes.

Team News

Arsenal have been hit with a number of injuries to key players recently. It is unclear if Laurent Koscielny will be available for this one after struggling with a hip problem, but David Ospina should be back in the squad after a shoulder injury.

Hector Bellerin, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck all remain sidelined.

Tottenham’s injury problems are not as dramatic so they should be able to put out a strong side come Sunday.

Danny Rose, Nabil Bentaleb and Clinton N’jie are slight doubts but Son Heung-min could be back in the side after facing six weeks on the sidelines.
