Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction at Tottenham Hotspur FC


Unai Emery’s first north London derby, a very entertaining game to watch, ended in a glorious 4-2 triumph. The Arsenal boss hopes to see his team duplicate that effort on Saturday in the reverse fixture. The Gunners will come into Wembley Stadium brimming with confidence, having just routed AFC Bournemouth 5-1 last night.

They’ll take on a Tottenham Hotspur side that is coming off a result at the polar opposite end of the spectrum. Spurs lost badly to Chelsea, a side that has really had a lot of issues as of late, last night at Stamford Bridge. However, this is the beauty of this time of year- win, lose or draw, momentum is only as strong as the very next result.

Let’s take a look at who Emery could start in this fixture against the Gunners’ hated rivals.
