EPL Week 6 : Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur
Premier League Saturday Sept 27, kick-off 17.30 (BST)
Mauricio Pochettino has set his sights on turning Tottenham into north London’s pre-eminent force as he aims to knock Arsenal off their perch at the Emirates.
Pochettino’s club have won just once at the home of their bitter rivals since May 1993, a 3-2 success in November 2010 when Harry Redknapp was in charge at White Hart Lane.
Chile winger Sanchez is determined to make it a day to remember, according to Arsenal team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
“Alexis and Jack (Wilshere) played 90 minutes the other day and they’re usually on second-day recovery,” he said on Thursday. “But today Alexis really wanted to train and people had to tell him to take it easy.
“That just sums up how much everyone wants to be around the squad and training, and I think he knew we had a massive game coming up this weekend and, as a new boy, it’s good that he does know that.
Arsenal and Tottenham go head to head in the north London derby on Saturday.
Laurent Koscielny v Emmanuel Adebayor
France defender Koscielny has developed a strong partnership with Per Mertesacker at the heart of the Arsenal rearguard. Koscielny will need to be at his mobile best to keep tabs on ex-Gunner Adebayor, who would like nothing more than to add to his goal tally and silence the boo-boys.
Mesut Ozil v Moussa Dembele
German playmaker Ozil relished in his free number 10 role against Aston Villa, scoring the first and setting up a quick-fire second for Danny Welbeck. Belgian midfield enforcer Dembele will be out to stop the supply chain through Arsenal’s rampaging midfielder, which has plenty of outlets other than the World Cup winner.
Danny Welbeck v Younes Kaboul
England forward Welbeck was unfortunate not to score on his home debut against Manchester City, and will be full of confidence after opening his Arsenal account at Villa Park. Spurs captain Kaboul will, though, be shadowing the £16million former Manchester United frontman, who is at his most dangerous when playing off the last defender.
