Arsenal v Tottenham: Predicted line-ups & score

Next Story

Tottenham travel to Arsenal for their hotly-anticipated FA Cup 3rd round clash on Sunday on a high after their 2-1 win against Manchester United on New Years' day.

Under new boss Tim Sherwood, Spurs are unbeaten in the Premier League and back in the hunt for a top four spot and Champions League qualification.

However this weekend all the attention will be on the FA Cup, and undoubtedly the tie of the round is the north London derby.

Both sides have their injury concerns ahead of the game, but will still field strong teams as they look to secure progress to the next round.

Tottenham are still without Paulinho, Jan Vertonghen and Sandro, and while Jermain Defoe, Andros Townsend and Lewis Holtby returned to training today Saturday's game will likely come too soon for them.

Similarly, Arsenal will be without a host of key players including Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Mesut Ozil will face a late fitness test.

Back-up striker Nicklas Bendtner will also miss the game having picked up a knock scoring the winner against Cardiff on Wednesday.

Arsenal predicted line-up: Sczcesny, Monreal, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Sagna, Flamini, Arteta, Rosicky, Ozil, Walcott, Podolski

Tottenham predicted line-up: Lloris, Rose, Walker, Dawson, Chiriches, Dembele, Eriksen, Chadli, Soldado, Adebayor

Score prediction: Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham
