Official teams and preview of Spurs v Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has erred on the side of caution and left the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez out of his match day squad altogether, despite the former Barca forward declaring himself willing to play – despite the medical advice that it would be a little bit too soon for him.

Danny Welbeck is properly fit again though, and the boss has brought his other summer signing straight back into the starting XI for the Gunners trip to White Hart Lane for the second North London derby of the season. I am a bit surprised to see that it is the England forward Theo Walcott who misses out though, with club record signing Mesut Ozil keeping his place in a wider role and Santi Cazorla continuing to run things in a central attacking midfield position.

That one change is the only one the manager has made, so Bellerin, Monreal, Ospina and Coquelin all get the chance to keep up their excellent recent form. This is likely to provide a stern test of Arsenal´s new found solidity and balance as well as a test of the character of our players in a vociferous and hostile away game, but that brilliant away performance at Man City is fresh in the memory and no one should be anything but confident.

Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Welbeck, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil

subs: Szczesny, Gibbs, Gabriel, Flamini, Rosicky, Walcott, Akpom

Go get em you Gunners!!

  8. Have some respect, wenger put out a team today that would beat most teams on there day,

    Best team who wanted the win won today, simple.

  9. We came overconfident by defeating VILLA …we missed SANCHEZ and OX period….Ramsey, GIROUD, WTF….OZIL to fragile for this league, he was beaten every time by strong energetic SPUDS players….I will not blast WENGER what’s the point, but make the comparison with POCHETINO to understand the EPL is not the same, WENGER came with a game plan and did not know how to change it…..DARN this one hurt
