Dat North London Derby. After another uplifting performance from Gareth Bale launched Spurs into third place against West Ham, a new challenge looms from North London--Arsenal.
Sunday afternoon brings Arsenal to White Hart Lane to face Spurs. Arsenal have been up and down this season, currently sitting in fifth place, four points behind Spurs. This Arsenal team has largely been led by new arrival Santi Cazorla and improved play from Theo Walcott. Olivier Giroud remains the main option at striker, while Wojciech Szczesny is the mainstay in goal.
