Tottenham perspective: Cartilage Free Captain
Everyone knows what this is. The North London Derby. 147 League meetings dating back to the Grover Cleveland administration or thereabouts. Arsenal have controlled most of the recent derbies, but Spurs are always dangerous.
With so many memories for Gunners in this fixture where every goal means so much, tomorrow should be one of the most fun matches in a while. Spurs aren't known for tackling like maniacs, so the match should be a welcome feast of attacking play from both sides.
Spurs are feeling the injury bug lately: Tom Huddlestone and Ledley King are unavailable for tomorrow. Kevin McCauley at CFC sees the Spurs lining up thusly:
(4-4-1-1): Gomes / Assou-Ekotto, Gallas, Kaboul, Hutton / Bale, Modric, Palacios, Lennon / van der Vaart / Crouch
We know all about Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale (the man they call "Welsh Jesus" around SBN). We know about Peter "Crouchinho" Crouch, England's finest historical lighthouse. William Gallas? We know him pretty well, too.
This match, given that both teams are missing their best central defensive pairing, could get a little wild...that being said, Arsène Wenger will probably opt to field his best attacking midfield. Johan Djourou has been in good form, so he may get the start over the return Koscielny, although it's not certain. As long as Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna can hold off Lennon and Bale, Arsenal have a very good chance to see off Spurs.
Sagna Squillaci Djourou Clichy
Song Wilshere (Denilson)
Nasri Chamakh Arshavin
With Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky lurking on the bench if Arsenal need slice, and Denilson and Emmanuel Eboué if they need defense.
Everyone set their multiple alarms!
