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.

Tottenham handed major boost as Barcelona star picks up hamstring injury ahead of Champions League clash

Harry Kane of Tottenham scores against Barcelona

Football.london reports that Ivan Rakitic could be a doubt for our Champions League clash against Barcelona next month.

The Croatian was subbed in the 3-2 win over Spain in the Nations League and didn’t play against England recently.

An update on Barcelona’s Twitter account was posted and didn’t confirm when the player could be fit.

Should the hamstring strain be severe, the player could miss a month or more, and Tottenham need all the luck they can get in their Champions League group.

Tottenham might need to win both their clashes in the group, and they don’t come easy with us facing Inter Milan at Wembley before that big clash against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Spurs gave themselves a lifeline against PSV with a late win, and we need similar heroics when we face the Serie A side.

Inter Milan beat us 2-1 and we will have to win by two clear goals or by a scoreline of 1-0 to get a better head to head than our rivals.

Barcelona have had their own struggles with a porous defence, and they conceded four goals in a shock 4-3 loss to Real Betis at the Nou Camp.

This should provide Spurs with some hope for the all-important clash and it will be better if some of the top Barca players can’t play the game.

26-year-old Tottenham star finds himself on Juventus’ radar for the January window

Juventus have made Christian Eriksen one of their top targets as they try to add quality in the winter window, according to Tuttosport (h/t Daily Mail).

The report adds that Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are all targets for the Serie A giants, and a reunion with the Manchester United man is their first choice.

Should a move not work out for Pogba, Eriksen is the man Juventus believe they can get. The Dane has struggled with injury this season at Tottenham and has recorded a single goal for the side.

Juventus have made it a habit of getting some quality players on the cheap and Eriksen is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs.

The attacking midfielder has been missed this season but we have done a decent job without him. Spurs are fourth in the Premier League just five points behind Manchester City, and our next clash is against Chelsea after the international break.

Eriksen has had a tough time with an injury this season but has recovered from the abdominal issue. The 26-year-old played the entire 90 against Wales and is expected to play again before the end of the international break.

Eriksen scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists for Spurs in the Premier League last season, and a similar return would be great after an injury-affected campaign.

England looked set for more international heartbreak as Croatia were leading in their UEFA Nations League game.

The hosts then turned things up a notch after Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser and Tottenham star Harry Kane got the winner.

The England captain turned saviour for the side again, but another Tottenham man also turned the game on its head with his arrival.

Dele Alli didn’t start in the important clash against the Croatians but came on with around 30 minutes remaining in the tie.

The Englishman didn’t score or grab an assist but his attacking display helped England to the semi-finals of the competition.

The 22-year-old has struggled for goals and assists this season, but this performance certainly led to several Tottenham fans applauding the youngster.
