Just one day to go before the first North London derby of the 2019/20 and I am going for a convincing home win for Arsenal.
To be honest, I do not usually get too worried when the game is at the Emirates, Arsenal has the far better record against them and even though form generally goes out the window in this derby I am very confident that we will be just too strong for our bitter local rivals.
For starters, I do expect Unai Emery to go with Aubameyang, Lacazette and Pepe up front, I simply cannot see any justification for him not doing so and if he does, I do not see the Spurs defence holding the line against that trio.
Of course, the defence is a worry for us as well but for me, it will be Arsenal doing most of the attacking and that will be the difference. I believe Pepe will run Danny Rose ragged, Aubameyang will do the same on the other flank and Lacazette will be the dominant man in the middle, Torreira will control the midfield like he did last year and Luiz and Sokratis will stand strong against Kane.
A lot will depend on the line ups I accept, but heart, determination and attitude will come into as well and the Arsenal lads have that in abundance right now, they showed it in defeat against Liverpool and it will be even stronger at home against Tottenham, of that, I am 100% sure.
Arsenal has the talent, home advantage, emotional stability and a united team, elements lacking at Tottenham these days and a winning margin of two goals is what I am expecting.
Arsenal 3-1 Tottenham
