Wenger Makes 1 Change: Predicted Arsenal Starting XI To Face Tottenham

Arsenal will look to keep the pressure on at the top of the Premier League table when they entertain Tottenham at the Emirates this Sunday. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech is a certainty to keep his place in goal and he’ll be looking to help secure victory in his first North London derby.

Defence: Laurent Koscielny faces a late fitness test after missing the Bayern Munich defeat due to a hip injury – although Arsene has given the Frenchman an 80% chance of being available so he could replace Gabriel alongside Per Mertesacker at the back.

Hector Bellerin has been ruled out of the game with a groin injury so Mathieu Debuchy should continue to deputise at right-back while Nacho Monreal will keep his place on the left side of defence.

Midfield: Wenger has very little movement for change in midfield due to a lengthy injury list that includes the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky so Santi Cazorla will continue alongside Francis Coquelin. Mikel Arteta is due to have a late fitness test after recovering from injury but a place on the bench is the best he can probably hope for.

Attack: The options in attack are also severely limited as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott have joined Danny Welbeck on the sidelines so I don’t think we’ll see any change to the front four that’s started against both Swansea and Bayern.

That means Joel Campbell is likely to retain his place on the right and join Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in attack. Olivier Giroud is going to have to once again lead the line up front.

Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?

Show me one pl team that has our kind of bench a sorry bunch we are not made to challenge for pl or cl wenger is a joke and that makes our players over worked and he blames national managers for playing them why didint Arsenal strengthen why is the team being given to one person who thinks he knows all about football very poor thinking giving the likes of morinyo to bash him calling him names what a board of fools minting fans’s money with the highest ticket bill how can Bayern afford good players while charging normal rate ticket
