We are now entering the the final countdown to our home game against Tottenham, and the starting line-up has now been confirmed. As I was hoping for in my pre-game preview, Laurent Koscielny is back in the side to shore up the defence. I certainly feel more confident with this great bit of news. Per Mertesacker just doesn’t have the same understanding with Gabriel.
The key questions and answers of an Arsenal fan by OA
Arsenal are getting ready to face our age-old rivals Tottenham Hotspurs on Sunday, but we have a current injury list of ten players and there is only one of those that has any hope of being back for the North London Derby.
It might seem like the worst possible time to be talking about the strength of the Arsenal back four, hot on the heels of such a heavy drubbing in the Champions League by the German champions. But to mitigate the stats that show our back four doing so well, I think we have to accept that we came up against an amazing team at their attacking best.
The North-London derby is always a tasty affair but Sunday’s game includes an added ingredient that should make it a little more interesting.
