Arsenal visit London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley stadium in
arguably the big match of the weekend.

It promises to be an interesting contest as both teams square up against each other
after impressive performances against Everton and Liverpool last weekend. The
likes of Mesut Ozil and Harry Kane would be in action as we hope for top quality
display at Wembley Arena.

With the eye catching display and intriguing expectation among the two sides,
there are things to look forward to with game. Here are three things to expect from
the game.

TRANSFER EXPECTATIONS

The two London clubs have made a host of January dealings as regards to the
transfer market. This will be put to test as some of these players would be out to prove themselves in a game of this magnitude where legends have born. Spurs acquired the services of Brazilian star Lucas Moura from PSG.

Arsenal have signed big-name players Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and although the duo impressed against Everton, this will be their first big game and the fans would be eager to see how they rise to the occasion.

MEASURE OF RIVALRY

Both sides would be keen to assert some misery on each other when they
lock horns on the pitch. This is due to the massive rivalry that exists between the two sides.

These tones of rivalry have produced great match-ups in the past as both sides aim to
outwit the opposition by all means on the field of play.

Arsenal won the reverse fixture 2-0 few months back as Shkodran Mustafi and Alex’s Sanchez gave the Gunners the three points, Tottenham would be hoping for their own pound of flesh as Arsenal visit Wembley today.

TERRITORIAL DOMINANCE

 

Arsenal will hope to claim a territorial dominance over all the London sides as they
have already defeated Chelsea this season. However, the home side might prove to be a stumbling block for the Gunners.

Both sides will not find it easy on the pitch as quality is brimming in both sites squad. Tottenham would be counting on star forward Harry Kane who reached a milestone of 100 goals in the Premier League last weekend.

However, with Aubameyang and Ozil coming from behind (in support) there is
renewed hope for Arsenal.
