Arsenal will be aiming to record a first Premier League away win against Tottenham Hotspur since March 2014 when the two sides go head-to-head at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Arsenal will be looking to end a run of three Premier League games without a victory when they make the short hop across North London this afternoon to face arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Gunners, who strolled their way to a comfortable 4-1 victory against Rapid Wien in the Europa League on Thursday evening, fell to a second defeat in their last three Premier League outings last weekend, going down 2-1 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
After the first nine matches this season, Spurs have been amongst the early pace setters, with Jose Mourinho’s side having made an impressive start of the campaign.
With that in mind, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who watched his side fall to a 2-1 defeat on their last visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in July, could not have picked a worse time to be battling against no shortage of injury and suspension concerns
Ahead of the short trip across the capital, Arteta will be hoping to have both centre-back David Luiz and summer signing Thomas Partey back available for selection. Luiz was ruled out of Thursday’s win over Rapid Wien after suffering a head injury in last weekend’s defeat to Wolves and Partey has missed the last four matches with a thigh problem.
