Less than 3 minutes into the game Tomas Rosicky fired a lovely volley into the top corner of Hugo Lloris net to give Arsenal an early 1-0 lead. A lead they tenaciously held on to till the end of the game to give the Gunners all three points.
So we arrive at White Hart line with a good run of form. 5 games unbeaten, 5 games with 3 points each, 5 games with clean sheet each. Can we make it 6? Wenger will surely be looking at the possibility of getting his 5th Premier League win at Tottenham. 4 wins, 10 draws from 18 games, it all seems this game is going to be a high scoring one. Last season Tottenham failed to score a single goal against the gunners in three attempts and Every cock-on-the –ball fan will be having nightmares of Tomas Rosicky.
Alexis Sanchez unfortunately will be missing this derby and Wenger seems most likely to continue with same team that made Villa look like a division-less team.
Ospina will continue to enjoy the chants of his name to the agonizing shrugs of Szczesny, and the Colombian will hope to pick only his water bottles when his tasty and not the ball from the back of the net.
The Back 4 picks itself. Metersacker will continue to enjoy the love of Koscienly, while Bellerin will cause pains from the right with Monreal having the best form of his Arsenal life.
The Coq will kick the Cocks off the ball, with Ramsey and Cazorla propelling the gunners forward, flanked by Walcott and Ozil. Olivier Giroud will lead as the alpha male. Welbeck is back in contention.
Will Wenger start Rosicky in place of either Walcott or Ozil? Will Welbeck have a taste of action?
A clean sheet, 2 unreplied goals and 3 points Is all we need.
