I do not think I need to say that the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez will be starting the north London derby this weekend, unless of course something untoward happens to him between now and then. The rest of the Arsenal front line is not so easy to predict though.
Now that Arsene Wenger has the option of the fit again Olivier Giroud he could once again put the Chilean back on the left flank with the Frenchman through the middle. And with the boss revealing in the latest injury update on the Arsenal website that our flying England forward Theo Walcott is still a doubt for the derby that could be more likely.
Even if Walcott is not fit enough to star against Spurs, however, I think that the Gunners have good enough options on the flanks to start Alexis through the middle. Those options would be Alex Iwobi and Oxlade-Chamberlain and both young Gunners have been in good form recently.
The added bonus of playing this front three is that we would have great pace and energy all the way across the forward line and not just one part of it. I have a feeling that the Tottenham defenders would be happier coming up against the size and strength of Giroud rather than the pace, movement and direct running of Alexis, Ox and Iwobi so is that how Wenger will line Arsenal up?
