Arsenal are gearing up to take on arch-rivals Tottenham this evening in the second North London Derby of the 2020/21 season.
The Gunners’ hopes of finishing in the top six are dangling by a thread as they are currently tenth in the standings, eight points off of Everton in sixth place.
Their last league game ended in a disappointing 1-1 draw against Burnley, but Mikel Arteta’s men did bounce back to winning ways, beating Olympiacos 3-1 in the UEFA Europa League this week.
Jose Mourinho’s side, meanwhile, have picked up steam after a poor run of results.
Spurs have racked up five wins in a row in all competitions, beating Crystal Palace 4-1 last weekend which was followed by a 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb in Europe.
Despite the upturn in form, Tottenham are still seventh in the table and have their task cut out to close the gap to fourth-placed Chelsea.
Arsenal Vs Tottenham Lineup
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Cédric, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney, Thomas, S. Rowe, Saka, Ødegaard, Xhaka, Lacazette
Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Doherty, Sánchez, Alderweireld, Reguilón, Ndombele, Højbjerg, Bale, Lucas, Son, Kane
