NORTH LONDON DERBY: Arsenal will now have to spend a few additional time in the ice baths this week due to a lack of rest ahead of their Premier League match against Tottenham on Sunday.

Here’s a look into the North London Derby match preview.

Arsenal came away from Anfield with just a goalless draw, a result that they could have had before a ball was played and with 11 men on the field.

It gives the Gunners the upper hand, with a one-game shootout on home turf standing between them and a third Wembley final. If they can overcome their major roster concerns, Chelsea will be their opponents.

The latter aspect is the key concern ahead of one of the most important North London derbies in recent memory.

Arsenal against Tottenham, Arteta has only one central midfielder available for Sunday’s Premier League derby in North London.

Granit Xhaka’s third red card since Mikel Arteta took charge, and the Spaniard’s 13th overall, has added to an already concerning scenario. Albert Sambi Lokonga is the only senior cenntral midfielder providing a variety now that the Swiss have been suspended for two to four matches.

In terms of the hosts, a deflated Antonio Conte has looked crestfallen in recent weeks and cast a forlorn picture on the side of the pitch as they slumped out of the Carabao Cup with a 1-0 second-leg defeat.

Spurs’ players have expressed concern that if he isn’t backed in the January transfer market, he may walk away from the position. He isn’t expected to bring in any new players in time for the match on Sunday, just like Arsenal.

Even though they’ve won three of their previous six matches in all tournaments, they haven’t looked convincing in any of them. Arsenal should feel confident after their displays against Manchester City and Liverpool, as well as Spurs’ inconsistencies without the ball.

They are, however, down to bare essentials. By the time the full-time whistle blew at Anfield, Gabriel Martinelli and Alexandre Lacazette were breathing same lung, and the form book becomes irrelevant in a game when home advantage has proven to be a big deciding factor in recent years.

The importance of this game cannot be underestimated. A mouth-watering battle is on the horizon.
