Tottenham Hotspur take on Arsenal this weekend, with the hosts in need of three points following two disappointing Premier League defeats.
Spurs have slipped up against Burnley and Chelsea to all but end their title charge, and now their attentions will have turned to staving off the chasing pack of the Blues, weekend opponents Arsenal and Manchester United.
Defeat to the Gunners at Wembley would reduce the gap between the sides down to just one point.
That will surely be motivation enough for both teams to win the game, and it could be another exciting North London Derby for the neutrals.
Spurs will certainly be hoping that one of their stars Heung-min Son can bring his A-game after dropping off in the last couple of games.
Son vs Lichtsteiner a horrible mismatch
Arsenal defender Stephan Lichtsteiner has been deemed fit and available for selection again after missing out on the 5-1 win over Bournemouth due to a back problem (official website).
The Swiss veteran might get the nod from Unai Emery to start, which would absolutely play into Son’s hands.
Son’s pace is truly frightening, and Lichsteiner would have a horrendous task trying to stop him given his own lack of mobility.
If Emery has any sense he will shoehorn Ainsley Maitland-Niles into right-back/right wing-back, as the youngster would arguably be more likely to keep up.
Either that or Emery plays Lichtsteiner with a covering defender told to double-up on the South Korean.
Emery has not been afraid to trust his first ever signing at Arsenal, but doing so against Son – fresh from his Player of the Year victory at the London Football Awards – could end in disaster.
