Petr Cech is likely to miss Saturday’s North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, as per reports. The goalkeeper suffered a calf-injury during Arsenal’s 5-1 rout of Everton on Saturday and is a big doubt for the game against Spurs, report the Telegraph.

Cech is not expected to recover from the injury he sustained at the weekend. Arsene Wenger initially said that the injury looked like a kick on the calf. The Gunners appeared to be calm over the goalkeeper’s fitness going forward.

However, it is understood that the scans yesterday indicated more damage than initially feared and that could see Cech miss out on the North London derby.

It would mean David Ospina coming back into the team to replace the Czech goalkeeper between the sticks and it will be only his second appearance in the Premier League this season, with the Colombian having mainly been used in the domestic cup and European competitions.

Cech has been the club’s No.1 goalkeeper since his arrival in 2015 and Ospina would hope to grab this opportunity with both the hands and prove a point to Wenger. The Colombian has often been criticised for making naïve decisions, and should he be needed this week, it would be shaky for the Arsenal defence which is already leaking goals at an alarming rate.

Well, an injury to Cech is a massive blow to Arsenal but a much bigger boost to Spurs. The former Chelsea goalkeeper has been Wenger’s undisputed No.1 since 2015 and although he has come under a lot of fire for his performance against Swansea, there is no denying the 35-year-old is still a reliable player between the sticks.

Keeping in mind Arsenal are struggling defensively and now are likely to be without Cech, Mauricio Pochettino could devise a different strategy to unsettle Ospina.

Spurs showed character on Sunday with an improved second-half performance against Liverpool that saw us take a vital point at Anfield. Pochettino would be well aware of Arsenal’s lack of defensive solidity and I won’t be surprised if Fernando Llorente is paired up with Harry Kane at the top. Victory against the Gunners will see us leapfrog Chelsea and Liverpool at least on a temporary basis.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.
