Tottenham – Arsenal (Premier League)

After a hard fought victory against Crystal Palace, last time out, Tottenham hosts Arsenal at White Hart Lane this Sunday, in a game referent to the 35th round of the Premier League. Eriksen was the main responsible for keeping Tottenham in the title race, scoring the solitary goal against Crystal Palace, with the Spurs now 4 points bellow league leader Chelsea. Arsenal, on their turn, are far bellow their usual 4th place and are running the risk of not make it to the Champions League next season, having been showing a very poor football in their last fixtures.

Tottenham are 2nd placed in the Premier League table with 74 points, result of 2 victories, 8 draws and 3 losses, with 69 goals scored and 22 goals conceded. After being eliminated of the last sixteen in the Europa League, by Gent, and more recently out of the FA Cup in the semi-finals at the hands of Chelsea, Tottenham can now focus all their strength in the fight for the top of the table, arriving here with 8 consecutive victories in the Premier League. With an 8 point advantaged from 3rd placed Liverpool, and with 4 bellow Chelsea, this is a very important game for the Spurs, that see the league leader with a tough game this weekend at Everton’s home where they might lose points, making the victory in this tie the perfect opportunity to decrease the point gap between them and the Blues.

Besides that, a victory here would see them finish above Arsenal for the first time since 1995. Spurs have the most organized defense of the Premier League, and have one of the best attacks in the league as well, being very dangerous when attacking down the wings, finishing scoring chances and in creating long shot opportunities. Harry Kane is the offensive reference, being the league 2nd top scorer with 20 goals scored, and with Eriksen being the most influential player of the team, with 8 goals scored and 12 assists.

In their last 5 official games, Tottenham won 4 games and lost the remaining one. This sequence of results started with a 1-3 victory at Swansea City’s home. This result was followed by a 4-0 home win against Watford, a 4-0 home win against Bournemouth, a 4-2 defeat against Chelsea, for the FA Cup, and in their last clash, a 0-1 away win agains Crystal Palace. Erik Lamela, Harry Winks and Michel Vorm are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Lloris – Dier, Alderweireld and Vertonghen – Walker, Wanyama, Dembélé and Rose – Eriksen and Alli – Kane.

premier-leagueArsenal, on their turn, are 6th placed in the Premier League table with 60 points, result of 18 victories, 6 draws and 8 defeats, with 64 goals scored and 40 conceded. In one more season where they were unable to take place in the title race, without surprise, Arsenal are now starting to worry if they will, or not, be able to take place in the Champions League in the next season, with the 4th placed Manchester City with 5 points above them. However, the Gunners have a chance take something positive from this not so good season, since they have guaranteed presence in the FA Cup final against the mighty Chelsea.

The priority now is to win this fixture and reducing the point gap to the 4th place, but in order to do that it is necessary for Arsenal to improve their playing style, which have been poor lately, principally in the last round against Leicester City, with last round only goal being an own-goal at 86th minute. The Gunners show some defensive loopholes, but have a lot of quality in their attack, with Ozil being a great midfielder with a huge game vision, and Alexis Sánchez, the league 3rd top scorer with 19 goals scored, capable of unbalancing any defensive sector through his individual talent and making the difference at any moment. However, Arsenal are not a good team when they play away from home, winning just 1 of their last 5 games, losing the remaining 4, scoring only 5 goals and conceding 13 in the process.

In their last 5 official games, Arsenal won 4 games and lost the remaining one. This sequence of results started with a 3-0 home win against West Ham. This result was followed by a 3-0 home win over Crystal Palace, a 1-2 away victory over Middlesbrough, a 2-1 home victory over Manchester City, for the FA Cup, and in their last clash, a 1-0 home victory against Leicester City. Cazorla is out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Cech – Paulista, Koscielny and Holding – Chamberlain, Ramsey, Xhaka and Monreal – Sánchez and Ozil – Welbeck.

Tottenham has won only 1 of their last 8 direct confronts, drawing 4 and losing the remaining 3.
