London Derby Preview: Tottenham V Arsenal
Posted: 12 July 2020
Tottenham Hotspur welcome their bitter rivals Arsenal Football Club at their new London Stadium later this afternoon for what promises to be a race for a top-four finish. The Gunners will be making their debut at the 62,303 capacity Tottenham Stadium and will be hoping to get one over their rivals.
The hosts will be without their midfielder Dele Allie who is still nursing a hamstring injury while Arsenal are without German shot-stopper Bernd Leno, Brazilians Gabriel Martinelli and Pablo Mari all through back problems.
Mikel Arteta’s players will be licking their lips in anticipation of today’s match as they going the better side in terms of form and points garnered over the last couple of weeks, while Jose Mourinho’s team are playing without any sort of identity at the minute.
However, there is no if, but’s or maybe’s in derbies, this is a game that throws out form right out of the window as it is played with pure emotion, desire and heart!
Kickoff is 17H30 South African Time
