The Tottenham player Arsenal should fear most

Just a couple of weeks ago Tottenham comprehensively beat Man City and looked in prime position to challenge for the league title again this year.

Things change so quickly in football however, and they have drawn three and lost two of the five games since. Arsenal are flying meanwhile, and will be confident of winning this particular North London Derby at home.

If Tottenham want to get anything out of the game, they will be reliant on Kyle Walker attacking down the right. Nacho Monreal looks set to start at left back for the Gunners despite fears over his fitness after he picked up a training ground injury this week.

If Walker can attack and expose a non-fully fit Monreal, Tottenham have a chance against an Arsenal back four that is otherwise looking extremely strong. Spurs’ back line will be well shielded by Dembele and Wanyama and should be able to give their attacking players a solid platform.
