What position are the Gunners better at — Arsenal Vs Spurs

The Gunners are in sixth place, but are only three points outside of the top four.

On the other side, Tottenham struggled to find someone who could out-think Wenger.

The Gunners are fifth and already 12 points behind the leaders after just 11 games of the new campaign. The first is that making predictions when Spurs play Arsenal is a risky business.

"Always with this kind of injury we have to be cautious".

Van der Vaart was playing for Spurs that day and laid on the assist for Younes Kaboul's winner.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has been ruled out of the derby due to a thigh injury.

The Frenchman might not be fit to face Arsenal on Saturday, but Lloris is a crucial part of Tottenham's game plan, operating as a fourth defender in his team's energetic system. The judgement is definite, permanent and forever.

"Wenger was an innovator, ahead of everyone, like Ferguson. Now we need to believe we are there and build our project and our era too". Arsenal always seemed to hold all the aces.

And then there's Pochettino himself.

That proved a big error, with Raul joining their bitter rivals and going on to become an all-time great for club and country. Israeli billionaire Idan Ofer is ready to buy into Atletico Madrid. "It's a match every player wants to be a part of".

If Manchester City continue at their current scoring rate they will finish the season with around 130 goals, smashing the previous record - 103 by Chelsea under Carlo Ancelotti in 2010 - to smithereens.

Dele Alli of Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino, Manager of Tottenham Hotspur embrace after he is subbed during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal at White Hart Lane on April 30, 2017 in London, England. On that occasion, Tottenham looked a beaten side at 2-0 down at halftime, only for a Gareth Bale and Rafa Van der Vaart revival to inspire the team to a 3-2 victory.

Arsenal have won each of their last ten Premier League games at the Emirates, their longest ever winning run at the stadium.

While Mauricio Pochettino's team harbour ambitions of winning both the Premier League and Champions League, Arsenal are living in reduced circumstances.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks, who all withdrew from the England squad for friendly internationals against Germany and Brazil, trained on Thursday, although Pochettino refused to say whether they would all play. Calm and collected in and out of possession, he's not afraid to clear danger when he senses it, but his experience of playing as a full-back has helped immensely in his transition to regularly playing as part of a three-man defence.

Another such outing on Saturday will not bode well for Arsenal, who need a positive result in a big game like this in order to prove themselves to be worthy Top 4 contenders.

Fatigue could also play a key role, with Tottenham having fewer players who were busy in the break.

"Tottenham are a good side but we have the quality to win the game", Wenger said. We predict a keenly contested 1-1 draw.
