'Predator' Lacazette MUST start for Arsenal against Tottenham

Posted November 17, 2017

Tottenham have a series of injury doubts ahead of the crucial clash, with a host of big-name players having sat out the worldwide break.

Harry Kane has scored in all five of his Premier League north London derbies, netting six goals in total.

For the first time in 22 years, Tottenham finished above their bitters rivals, sealing the Gunners' fate in a 2-0 win at the Lane.

It shouldn't be forgotten that it was Arsenal which ended last season with a trophy - the FA Cup - and Tottenham's critics argue that Mauricio Pochettino's team need to win silverware as a form of validation of its progress.

Tottenham's Harry Kane has scored in all five of his Premier League games against Arsenal and has scored six goals total, including a brace in a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane on February 7, 2015.

Although, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is insistent that his side are not "underdogs" going into this weekend's clash.

Despite being a rival fan, Morgan admits he is a huge admirer of Kane, and urged him to "come home" to Arsenal.

But the coalition has made little progress, and the rebels still control much of northern Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa. Iran denies arming the Houthis and blames the conflict in Yemen on Riyadh.

"They've been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression".

Moments earlier at the news conference Thursday, Wenger had interrupted a reporter who pointed out that Arsenal had dominated Tottenham for a "long time".

The 26-year-old made something of a mockery of Wenger's decision by scoring just nine minutes after his second half introduction to briefly bring his side back into a contest which was eventually settled when Gabriel Jesus put City 3-1 ahead with a contentious goal.

And Wenger says Arsenal will have to assess the situation on Monday.

Arsenal last thumped Tottenham? Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title.

"We did it with Sol Campbell so we can do it again - Harry Kane's a Gooner and we will get him back".

Arsenal will be without injured striker Olivier Giroud, while Wenger has to decide whether to recall Alexandre Lacazette to the team after leaving the France global out of two big games this season already, at Liverpool and Man City.
