Good god, it's early. The Premier League should schedule these games like Spain does, at 10PM local time, so those of us on the West Coast of a country the Premier League doesn't play in or have teams based in don't have to get up half an hour before they even go to bed. WHO'S WITH ME
Oh, fine, sure, early kickoffs less drinking safer less trouble think of the children WHATEVER. All I know is that Arsenal are heading into this game in good shape, as healthy as they've been in a while, and they'll need all that good-shapeness to counter a Spurs attack that for once is an actual attack, and not its usual clown car running hilariously into a telephone pole.
New man Gabriel might see some action today as Arsenal focus their attention on Harry Kane, while on Arsenal's side of the ball, Alexis will be missed, but then again he may actually play, according to Arsene yesterday. The midfield hydra of Özil, Ramsey and Walcott should be able to work without him, and the attacking duo of Giroud and Welbeck is more than capable of inflicting some damage of their own.
