This is going to be a big weekend for Tottenham. Having been narrowly beaten by Burnley last weekend, the team will be looking to come out on top here if they have any chance of emerging as a serious contender. On the other side of the blanket, Arsenal will be desperate to make the Champions League this year, so they won’t be giving an inch. This is more than just two old rivals meeting up for another clash – this is going to be a pivotal match that will affect the rest of the season. Everything’s on the line for Unai Emery – will he be able to pull it off?

Arsenal will have to really turn things around if they’re to have any chance of making the champion’s league this year. The question is whether, should Tottenham win, their victory could kickstart some momentum for them and see them move up the table.
