Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta was clearly frustrated about dropping two points against Leicester on Tuesday and he felt aggrieved by some of the decisions that were made by the match officials.
It means the Gunners head into the North London derby on Sunday eight points off fifth, with their prospects of Champions League football having been all but extinguished.
With Spurs having drawn against Bournemouth last night, they find themselves behind their fierce rivals going into the weekend, with both teams now having to accept that Europa League football is the best they can hope for.
Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta will be without Eddie Nketiah, after his sending off against Leicester, while Mesut Ozil remains a major doubt due to a back problem.
Bernd Leno (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle), Gabriel Martinelli (knee) and Calum Chambers (knee) are all long-term injury absentees.
For Tottenham, manager Jose Mourinho will have Eric Dier suspended, while Dele Alli is unlikely to feature due to a hamstring injury. Japhet Tanganga (back) and Juan Foyth (knee) are both unavailable.
The bookmakers can’t split the two teams with Spurs currently 17/10 at Betfair to get the three points. A draw is 5/2 with Betfred while an Arsenal victory is 7/4 at Betway.
Predicted Score – 0-0
