Arsenal Vs Tottenham Hotspur: Team News, Line Ups, And Betting Odds

Arsenal and Tottenham will meet in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday at the Emirates Stadium for a repeat of the thrilling North London derby played out on December 2.

The Gunners came storming back from behind on that occasion to record a 4-2 victory over their great rivals, signalling a return to form under the stewardship of Unai Emery after years of struggle.

However, they have since seen a 22-match undefeated run come to a shuddering halt against Southampton at the weekend and have their work cut out bouncing back against a Spurs side that continues to be one of England’s most consistent outfits.
Squads & Team News

Position         Arsenal players
Goalkeepers Cech, Leno, Martinez
Defenders Bellerin, Sokratis, Lichtsteiner, Holding, Mustafi, Kolasinac
Midfielders Elneny, Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Ozil, Torreira, Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, Guendouzi,                                    Xhaka
Forwards          Lacazette, Aubameyang

There are numerous defensive headaches for Unai Emery, who will be without long-term absentees Konstantinos Mavropanos and Rob Holding. Shkodran Mustafi, Sead Kolasinac and Hector Bellerin, however, are all further worries, with the Spaniard unlikely to play. Stephan Lichtsteiner is fit.

Danny Welbeck and youngster Emile Smith-Rowe are also missing for the Gunners.

Possible Arsenal starting XI: Cech; Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal; Jenkinson, Xhaka, Torreira, Maitland-Niles; Ramsey, Ozil; Aubameyang

Position           Tottenham players
Goalkeepers    Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga
Defenders    Rose, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Walker-Peters, Foyth, Aurier, Davies
Midfielders    Son, Winks, Wanyama, Nkoudou, Dier, Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen, Moura
Forwards           Kane, Llorente

Moussa Dembele and Victor Wanyama continue to sit out for Spurs, but Mauricio Pochettino will be forced to wait on numerous players prior to this clash.

Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghen are all doubts in defence, while the versatile Eric Dier is out until January. Pochettino’s back four is, therefore, liable to be comprised of whoever is available.

Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son were left on the bench at the weekend and are probable starters.

Possible Tottenham starting XI: Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Dier, Winks; Alli, Eriksen, Son; Kane

Betting & Match Odds
There’s little between the two sides in the eyes of the bookmakers. Bet365 have Arsenal down as very marginal favourites with odds of 13/8, while Tottenham are priced at 17/10. A draw can be backed at 13/5.
