Arsenal v Tottenham Preview
Arsenal's habit of making sluggish starts worked against them at the St.Mary's stadium on Sunday when they couldn't come back from being 1-2 down at interval to Southampton, eventually losing the game 2-3.
A Tottenham attack that's found new confidence after their superb show in Barcelona and three straight Premier League wins will want to exploit Arsenal's first half frailties and strike early when they visit the Emirates for a Wednesday evening EFL Cup quarter-final clash.
Unai Emery's men who had gone through 22 games without losing were especially stunned to find a team like the lowly Southampton breaking that run.
There's a serious frailty at the Arsenal defense going into the mid-week fixture. What with Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Konstantinos Mavropanos injured and Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi suspended.
Left-back Sead Kolasinac is battling a thigh injury battling to be fit in time for the EFL clash. Mustafi could be back from suspension but a thigh injury may prevent him from featuring in the forthcoming clash. So, Emery may have to do with the recently-returned Laurent Koscielny, back from a long injury hiatus, midfield specialist Granit Xhaka and the aging Stephan Lichtsteiner at the back.
Arsenal will depend heavily on the likes of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazettes and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to provide the attacking impetus against Tottenham and goals, of course.
Mauricio Pochettino's men who have had a run of good games of late made heavy weather of their 1-0 win against Burnley last weekend.
Christian Eriksen's 91st minute strike broke a potential deadlock against a resolute Burnley defense.
The Gunners could pick up a few threads from the Clarets who defended from the front and restricted the space for attacking players like Harry Kane, Eriksen, Dele Alli and Erik Lamela by hunting them down in pairs.
The Spurs aren't without their injury woes either. Eric Dier with an appendix surgery, Mousa Dembele nursing an injured foot, Victor Wanyama (knee) and Jan Vertonghen and Vincent Janssen with ankle and thigh injuries have all left the Spurs’ mid-field and defense much below their normal strength.
On the positive side, players like Juan Foyth (thigh), Serge Aurier (groin) and Davinson Sanchez (thigh) seem to be coming out of injuries and could very well feature on Wednesday.
Tottenham will be looking to avenge the 2-4 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates not very long ago.
The Spurs last won at the venue way back in November 2010 but have come back empty-handed in their 9 trips since then.
Bookmakers have factored in history and the almost similar recent forms of the two teams to give the hosts a slide edge to qualify to the next round of the EFL Cup.
