Tottenham vs Arsenal – Three Key Questions ahead of the game at White Hart Lane


All the eyes will be at White Hart Lane tonight as The North London Derby could potentially turn out to be the title decider this season. Spurs trail Leicester by 3 points, while Gunners are 6 points behind the league leaders.

In a way, neither team can afford to drop points, specially Arsenal, if they draw or lose this one, it could be all over for their title bid this season.

Ahead of the kick-off, we take a look at three key questions which ought to be answered this weekend as two fierce rivals meet to write another chapter of their famous rivalry.

Will Arsenal surrender title this weekend?

Arsenal and their capitulation at the far end of a season is well documented and it would not surprise me if they get beat tonight and end up finishing fourth this season. Arsene Wenger needs to address the obvious elephant in his Arsenal dressing room and try to sort out the mess which has been created in last 3 weeks.

Can Spurs emerge as Premier League superpower?

The work Maurcio Pochettino has done with Tottenham is commendable. Even if Spurs fail to win the title this season, you would not put it beyond them to go and get the job done next season. For years, they played second fiddle to Arsenal, now is the time for them to emerge as the real Premier League powerhouse.

Arsenal’s possession vs Tottenham’s aggression

Arsenal like to keep the ball and play around, while Tottenham this season have looked to break their opponents’ momentum and attack quickly. Eric Dier has been a beast for Spurs this season in breaking up play or opponents down to ensure Spurs start their counter-attack at a brisk pace.

Tottenham are doing everything right what Arsenal supporters have only imagined or rather dreamt of seeing in last 10-12 years. Gunners fans have the right to feel grieved about the way their club has progressed under Arsene Wenger, and tonight could be an important day in Arsenal Football Club’s history. A win could ease off things for few weeks, however, a defeat would see the situation get even worse.
