The standout fixture for this week’s Premier League games would be the clash between Arsenal and Tottenham. The Gunners have been looking to claw their way back into the top-4 and given our draw against Liverpool, we have a chance of winning the derby.
One player we will have to keep an eye on is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The winter signing had an incredible debut to gloat about as he scored in their 5-1 hammering of Everton. The Gabon star was one of the best performers in the Bundesliga during his time with Borussia Dortmund but Toby Alderweireld has recently revealed how the team plans to keep the Arsenal man quiet.
As we host the Gunners, Alderweireld was quoted by the Metro as saying:
“He’s very quick, he’s a good finisher, he has it all. He is in a good moment now as well so it’s going to be very difficult to beat him but I think we will be ready for it.
“You have to work your mind. One against one, on the same line, he will beat you, so you have to be very clever, you have to read the situation and try to beat him with your head.”
We would have to be at our best as we look to keep the pressure on the other clubs and look to chase down the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea but if we can go on a run until the end of the season, we could even pip Manchester United to 2nd spot.
Harry Kane seems to be back to his best and even though he missed a penalty in the 2-2 draw against Liverpool, he redeemed himself with a last minute goal to give us a deserved point.
That performance should give us the necessary boost ahead of the big clash and anything other than a win would be a disappointment for the club and the fans. We also have the Champions League clash against Juventus coming up and the best way to prepare for this would be to beat the Gunners.
Alderweireld might have a tough time keeping the likes of Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan quiet. The pair have some sort of understanding from their time at Dortmund but our defence can deal with the pair and hopefully, register a handsome victory too.
