Compared to last season, Tottenham have scored 9 more goals at this point of the year (64).
Arsenal have averaged a point per away game in the Premier League this season and are winless in 15 away matches against the top five clubs. To do that they’ll have to fix their very bad away form. Tottenham is a -105 money-line favorite, meaning you would need to wager $105 to win $100. “The best way to defend is to have the numbers and take the game to them”, he said.
While Spurs won’t have welcomed having to play Newport again in midweek, it may have actually done them a favour as several first-team players were given much-needed minutes.
Arsenal are aiming to win both home and away against their north London rivals in the Premier League for just the fourth time in the same season, doing so previously in 2004-05, 2007-08 and 2013-14.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are without the injured Santi Cazorla.
If he does choose to adopt this formation, Pochettino knows that he can easily modify the lineup so that it shifts into a 4-3-1-2 – the formation he used against Manchester City earlier in the season.
Arsenal are now in sixth place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and break back into the top four this season.
And the idea that the Spurs players might be trying to trick him could well be on referee Anthony Taylor’s mind if he has any decisions to make in that regard when they host Arsenal meet at Wembley on Saturday. After trailing for nearly the entirety of the game, the Lilywhites managed to score the equalizer in the last minute, to snatch two points away from the Reds. The game ends in a draw with 21.9 % likelihood, while Arsenal steals the points with 20.8 % chance.
The new recruits, and tying Mesut Ozil up to a new contract, have been good moves by the looks of it but Tottenham always get up for this one and Harry Kane especially.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ended his debut with a goal, albeit an offside one, as a reward for eviscerating speed.
It’s hard to pick anyone other than Kane as the key man against Arsenal.
Even with Spurs conceding only 9 goals in their 13 home games, it’s likely to be a high-scoring affair.
The Gunners have won the FA Cup three times during that spell, and the route from the Emirates to Wembley is certainly a well-trodden one.
In addition to this, they are now on a scoring streak of 18 consecutive games.
