Wenger To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Arsenal Starting XI To Face Tottenham

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from a hugely disappointing loss against Swansea when they take on rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Saturday. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech has been ruled out after suffering a calf injury during the final stages of Wednesday night’s defeat so David Ospina is set for a rare start.

Defence: Laurent Koscielny has also been ruled out after picking up a calf injury prior to the Swansea game so Gabriel is set to continue alongside Per Mertesacker at the back.  Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal are expected to keep their places ahead of Calum Chambers and Kieran Gibbs in defence.

Midfield: We struggled to find our rhythm one again in midfield last night but I don’t see how Arsene Wenger is going to be able to change things right now with Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere injured. Mohamed Elneny doesn’t look ready to play regularly yet and Mathieu Flamini certainly isn’t the answer, so it looks like we’ll stick with Aaron Ramsey and Francis Coquelin on Saturday.

Attack: Olivier Giroud’s poor form continued against Swansea as he missed a couple of great chances so I expect Danny Welbeck to get a recall against Tottenham. Alexis Sanchez was unfortunate not to break his goal-scoring drought last night and while he too is out of form right now, I don’t see Wenger dropping him for such a huge game.

Mesut Ozil will obviously keep his place in attack but it’s going to be interesting to see how starts on the right. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is injured and Joel Campbell was very good against Swansea but I have a feeling the boss will recall Theo Walcott, despite his poor form of late. Theo loves to play Spurs and is usually always up for North London Derbies so he could get the nod.

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

    Ohhhhhhh….. again Ramsey. Omg rather than playing him it is better to play with 10 players. after he come to the mid.F arsenal had never play any ball. pls pls use both Coq and Elen. Please wenger at-least only for one day please look at the fun and at-lest for our moral.

    Even with Petr Cech and Koncielny Arsenal were not able to win against sunderlan , so without them are they expected to win against Spurs . we hope they can defend as a team to avoid humilationas we hate to loose 4-0 against our enemies . Wenger himself said he is clueless how his team are going to score goals . With Meersacker and Giroud Arsenal have no hope to win the championship , now we just hope we end up at least on the top four.

    Wenger could make up to eight changes to the team that came from behind on Saturday to draw 2-2 at Tottenham and end a run of three consecutive defeats.
