Arsenal play North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League on Sunday afternoon (4.30pm, local time).
This is another early season clash between two of the “Big 6” teams in English soccer, with results likely to have a huge impact on both the Premier League title race and, in this instance, the battle to finish in the top four and secure lucrative UEFA Champions League places next season.
Both teams come into this game on the back of defeats last weekend, with Arsenal having lost 3-1 at Liverpool, while Tottenham suffered a shock 1-0 loss at home to Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United.
The Gunners can be seen as a work in progress following several additions to the squad over the summer, although defensively they still look vulnerable. Over at Tottenham there’s a sense that the uncertainty surrounding the future of playmaker Christian Eriksen could be having a detrimental effect on them.
