Possible Arsenal line-up against Tottenham


Arsenal manager will be taking the Gunners on a short road trip to White Hart Lane tomorrow with the spirits of the team flying high after the 2-0 win at the Etihad over Manchester City followed by a 5-0 win over Aston Villa last Sunday.

And while a North London derby needs no added excitement there will be plenty on hand as the two clubs separated by just two points battle not just for bragging rights but that all important top four finish to the season.

Wenger has almost a full squad to choose from with Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott all looking in fine form against Villa.

The big question is of course Alexis Sanchez with Wenger hinting that the Chilean might be able to take part in the match despite his hamstring problems.

The other question is whether or not Ospina will remain between the posts.

Here at Soccer Transfers we are of the opinion that if it’s not broke don’t try to fix it and so far the Colombian has not put a foot wrong keeping four consecutive clean sheets, and while Wenger says Wojciech Szczesny is still his number one goalkeeper we expect to see Ospina retain his place.

As for the defence we do not expect to see new boy Gabriel Paulista start in such an important game, and think that Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker will continue their centre-back partnership with Hector Bellerin given the job of curtailing Spurs Christian Eriksen.

The Gunners midfield has been rewarded by the introduction of holding midfielder Francis Coquelin who has helped aid the defence and allowed the team to keep clean sheets.

With Sanchez still not 100% we think that Wenger will go with Ozil and Cazorla to provide the balls to front man Olivier Giroud.

The French striker will also be the lead spear in Arsenals attack with Theo Walcott hoping to make an impact with his blistering pace down the flanks.
