On Sunday 25th September 2021, Arsenal will welcome their arch rivals Tottenham to the Emirates for the first installment of the 2021/22 North London Derby, ahead of the crunch tie let's take a look at the current form, head to head stats, possible formation and lineup.
Both teams have had ups and downs this season, for Arsenal they began the season in poor form, but they seem to have found their feet again with back-to-back wins and cleansheets, the gunners are improving with each passing game.
For Tottenham, they seem to have faltered along the way after begining the season with a brilliant win over Manchester City they faltered and lost to Chelsea and Crystal Palace.
Head - To - Head
In the last four meetings between the two North London clubs, Tottenham seem to have the advantage, with two wins and a draw, the gunners have only one victory. Ahead of Sunday's game, the gunners are favorites because of their improving form and Tottenham's recent dip in form.
Tottenham will be hoping that their captain, Harry Kane has returned to form, Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping that the partnership of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung Min yield the positive results.
The gunners have Thomas Partey to depend on in midfield, while a solid performance will be needed from Gabriel Magalhaes in defence, for goals Aubameyang is Arsenal's star man.
Mikel Arteta will likely continue with the 4-2-3-1 Formation he has used for the most part of his Arsenal coaching career.
Nuno Espirito Santo is more of the 4-4-2 man, with Harry Kane and Son playing up top.
