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.

Ospina
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Coquelin
Welbeck, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil
Giroud

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

Go get em you Gunners!!

    get well beck off he is going to be sent off and he is exhausted…gave the ball away 3 times in first minute of half….very poor

    1. sevenitti says:

      He’s been OK in defense and his usual horrible in the attack, we need Walcotts counterattacking ability

    2. galaxygooner says:

      Ramsey,wilshere, Szczecny – p45

  2. rools says:

    come on, 3 more goals.

  3. Invincibles49 says:

    The rivalry between the two Dannys can cost US 3 points. Welback needs to calm down.

  4. maxwell says:

  5. Invincibles49 says:

    Welbeck looks exhausted!! Time to bring on Walcott.

  6. Invincibles49 says:

    40% possession. 14 shots to 3. Hope we can survive.

  29. medvet says:

    i iss sanchez soo much…

  30. gooner100 says:

    Why the fcuk hasn’t rose, Benteleb or mason been booked? Repeated fouls with no punishment.

  31. SANCHEZ WHERE ARE YOU….DARN WHEN WE NEED YOU MOST

  32. Mesut O-healed says:

    Yo, I think Ospina might be hurt of something

  33. ras911 says:

  34. rkw says:

  35. RSH says:

  36. Raaaz says:

    Pleaze bring Rosicky… What is Ramsey doing there?

  37. gmv8 says:

    Rose should be off, Walcott on

    1. Mesut O-healed says:

  38. Matt says:

    We cannot let these f*cking morons walk all over us like this!!

  39. medvet says:

    ramsey abismal today

  40. marky958 says:

    Wenger fks it up again, where’s Walcott and Rosicky, Spurs are all over us in the first half and Wenger doesn’t do anything, Their goal has been coming for the most of the game! Yet for some reason giving in and not controlling the game!

  41. GOONSTER says:

    Make some Changes.. We need Rosikcy and Walcott on now..

  42. Just when I thought WENGER was seeing the light………..FROZEN

  43. Invincibles49 says:

    Flamini warming up ??? Is Wenger playing for the draw now?? Typical 4th place mentality.

  44. PaddyGooner says:

    Tom is warming up

  45. cazorla??????????????????//

  46. Raaaz says:

    I can’t believe this, Santi off, what is Ramsey doing on there

  47. medvet says:

    really???? cazorla…………. speechless

  48. rkw says:

    what a typically stupid wenger decision….why we will never win anything uder him

  49. PaddyGooner says:

    Santi off, why not Ramsey?

  50. Invincibles49 says:

    Cazorla??? Thats a shocker!! I was hoping for Ramsey for fu*k sake!!

  51. mesüt says:

    Ramsey should be taken off.

  52. medvet says:

    ramsey playing like sh*t and take off cazorla………………speechless

  53. Ronny331 says:

    OMG, what can you say!!

  54. highbury44 says:

    Sorry i can only see a spurs win now

  55. rkw says:

    jesus the truth is they are a much better footballing team than us…and more passion

  56. fred cowardly says:

    If we lose or draw I will blame Wenger because even if he didn’t start Walcott he should not wait until late in 2nd half to put on Walcott/Rosicky

    Incredible management today. Unbelievable

  57. Invincibles49 says:

    Giroud is still doing warm ups!!

  58. rkw says:

    of course we are losing this game…wenger is a joker

  59. NIKK says:

    Fukin sub Giroud and let hav pace upfront to stretch their defence & pressin higher up

  60. gmv8 says:

    This bloody ref is playing for them!!!!

  61. Arsene=Arsenal says:

    pls tell me Giroud is a defender playing high up the pitch. He doesnt hvva single shot.

    1. Arsene=Arsenal says:

      no wonder ozil doesnt hv much assists with us. he passes to giroud to shoot, but giroud passes to someone else

  62. medvet says:

    for god sake, take ramsey off……………….. he is making stupid mitakes

  63. No Giroud, I'm happy says:

    it should be Ozil out not Cazorla, at least he can defend ..

  64. Ronny331 says:

    3-0 or 4-0 win yes, said that was boll*cks!
    We are spineless and slow today.
    Wengers team selection has meant his substitutions are tied.
    Ozil, Welbeck, Giroud, Ramsey, Mert all poor.
    We dont look hugry and we have now pacey outlet to push them back, Walcott, Akpom? Think Wengers waiting to see if they score a second!!

  65. CraigZWE says:

    I can’t watch anymore, we being bossed and it not the same as City.
    I think ref not dishing out yellows for Spurs plays a role, but we haven’t got going.

    And where is Theo, bring him on for Welbeck.

  66. Ronny331 says:

    also I’ve noticed we are starting to push up but not get back, Mert and Kos the only men back, deja vu from the black days.

  67. rkw says:

    make a change you gallic zombie….

  68. Mesut O-healed says:

    had our chances…

  69. mrabeeh says:

    whats hapened to us.. at times like these i miss our posession game..
    We just can happen to keep the ball

  70. No Giroud, I'm happy says:

    Get the donkey off

  71. RSH says:

    ugh, we have to take our chances now….

  72. medvet says:

    last year 3 wins, this season ????

    1. ras911 says:

      Yes because last season Tottenham were a much weaker side that purchased a multitude of players that didn’t gel well together. This season they are much stronger. Am i the only one noticing that this is a much strong and in form Tottenham side?

  73. rkw says:

    dont rate the whippet but if he scores will forgive him

  74. medvet says:

    and ramsey lose the ball again………

  75. ras911 says:

    Moaning and moaning again. When this worked against Man City everybody praised Wenger. Now that it is not working as well, he is a poor manager. One thing you all choose to ignore which is sad is how in form Tottenham have been lately. Did you really expect us to walk over the team that beat Chelsea 5-3? Delusional much? Walcott will come on soon and reinforce our counter attack so chill the hell out people.

    1. No Giroud, I'm happy says:

      shut up, you are moaning now

      1. ras911 says:

        Yes i’m moaning cuz im tired of people ignoring facts and complaining

        1. RSH says:

          if you think this was the same way we played against City, you are blind.

  76. PaddyGooner says:

    come on theo, remember last year?

  77. No Giroud, I'm happy says:

    what’s wrong with you wenger? we need pace, giroud giroud not welback

  78. PaddyGooner says:

    TG Lamela is a donkey

  79. Ramsey SUUUCCCCKKKKSSS

  80. rkw says:

    ramsey should be sent to the championship he is useless

  81. PaddyGooner says:

    Will we take a draw?

  82. GOONSTER says:

    We are making every pass seem so difficult..

  83. gmv8 says:

    Referee is a joke- get him off!!!!!

  84. john0711 says:

    Cmon arsenal

  85. Mick The Gooner says:

    Showing far too much respect. This is Tottenham Hotspur, not Bayern Munich…

  86. Mesut O-healed says:

    Ramsey and these passes… killing me

  87. GunningSoulman says:

    Ramseys season has been one to flush down…..

  88. medvet says:

    soo sh*t ramsey today……….. the bench is waiting for you…. i hope so

  89. rkw says:

    i cant believe he played ramsey in this game…he has been shit all season and was hopeless to fday wenger cant make proper managerial decision

  90. Raaaz says:

    Tottenham deserves that, we have been shit

  91. Twig says:

    Harry Kane, best player in EPL?

  92. medvet says:

    A DEFEAT AGAINST SPUD……………. FACKKKKKKKKKKKKK¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

  93. Mesut O-healed says:

    Played horrible.

  94. PaddyGooner says:

  95. rkw says:

  96. Mick The Gooner says:

    Terrible, embarrassing performance.

  97. medvet says:

    ANWFUL SUBTITUTION……. WENGER LOSES THIS GAME…..

  98. fred cowardly says:

    2-1

    Thanks Wenger for your wonderful management skills. He will justify it by saying Derbys away are always tough to win

  99. Sumo says:

    We deserve this. Too much respect shown. Just fcuk this bloody sh*t. Each and every player was sh*t today.

  100. highbury44 says:
