Players Unlikely to Start for Arsenal

Arsenal are unlikely to see Rob holding start in Center Defense as he has proven to be calamitous when given the starting role alongside Pablo Mari.

Bern’d Leno would have to sit this game on the bench as Aaron Ramsdale have proven to be what Arteta lost in his past Decision to send Emi Martinez out of his team, the Englishman has so far proven to the the jigsaw in Arteta missing piece in the team.

Players Unlikely to Start for Tottenham

Ever since Harry Kane tried forcing a move out of Tottenham he has been a shadow of the player he once was, and from all indications his teammates were not happy with his decision and have contributed to his absurd loss of form recently.

Gollini is another player who wouldn’t get a starting chance for Tottenham against Arsenal as Hugo lloris is currently fit and can not be dropped.

Predictions:

London derbies of this nature are always special and as such expected to be tough.
