Arteta makes surprise change | Expected Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Tottenham Hotspur – Thomas Partey out, Oleksandr Zinchenko…



Arsenal will be looking to maintain their Premier League title aspirations as they take on Tottenham Hotspur away today.


Arsenal are set to face Tottenham Hotspur in a crucial Premier League match today as they look to maintain their title aspirations.


After bouncing back from a surprising defeat to Aston Villa, the Gunners have been in fine form with consecutive wins in the league.


Following their impressive 5-0 victory over Chelsea, Arsenal will be eager to secure another win against Spurs.


Manager Mikel Arteta could have a fully fit squad for the north London derby, with Jurrien Timber nearing a return.


Formation: 4-2-3-1


Projected Line-up:


David Raya has been a consistent presence in goal for Arsenal, leading the Golden Glove race with 14 clean sheets. The Spanish goalkeeper is expected to start in goal once again.


In front of him, the backline could resemble the one that faced Chelsea. Ben White has excelled at right-back, scoring two goals in the previous match. His overlapping runs have been a key feature of his game since January.


William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes are the established center-back pairing, having kept six clean sheets in a row away from home. Takehiro Tomiyasu is likely to start at left-back ahead of Jakub Kiwior and Oleksandr Zinchenko after an impressive performance in the last game.


In midfield, Jorginho is expected to come in for Thomas Partey in the defensive midfield role. Partey had a decent outing against Chelsea but was exposed defensively at times. Arteta may opt for Jorginho to provide more stability.


Arsenal’s lineup against Spurs could see some changes in the midfield, with the Italian player being paired with Declan Rice. Declan Rice, who played a crucial role in two goals against the Blues, will most likely continue operating from the number eight position. In the upcoming north London derby, he might have additional defensive responsibilities.


On the attacking front, there are no expected changes. Leandro Trossard, who recently scored his 15th goal of the season, will continue on the left wing. Bukayo Saka is a guaranteed starter on the right flank. Martin Odegaard is also anticipated to start in the number 10 role.


Martin Odegaard has consistently showcased his ability to create scoring opportunities for his teammates in recent weeks. Leading the attack will be Kai Havertz, who impressed with a fantastic brace against his former club.


This is how Arsenal could potentially line up against Spurs.
