Arsenal are on a winning streak of five matches despite having some of their most important players injured. Alexis Sanchez is tipped to return to help continue the Gunners’ good run even if Arsene Wenger stated the striker might not be fit, attributed mainly to the change of goalkeepers with David Ospina stepping in effortlessly into Szczęsny’s shoes . Add that to the fact that Koscielny returned from injury to bring some stability into the backline , Bellerin has been integrated successfully in the team and you have the recipe for why Arsenal have been keeping four clean sheets in five matches.
Tottenham have three wins, one draw and one defeat in their last five matches and their latest result is a 3-0 win over West Bromwich. The hosts have no injury worries and even welcomed back Nabil Bentaleb from the AFCON and the player could get to start if he passes the fitness test. Tottenham are tipped to succeed only if Harry Kane will find his scoring boots . If not, the duty will pass on to Eriksen or Lamela. The Spurs have only one win against Arsenal in seven matches and it dates back to 2013 while 2012 witnessed identical 5-2 wins by the Gunners.
