Arsenal news: Who will replace Cech and Koscielny for crucial north London derby? Predicted XI to face Tottenham
Arsenal face arguably the biggest game of their season on Saturday as they try to get their title-challenge back on track – against their greatest rivals, Tottenham.
The Gunners have lost back-to-back Premier League games against an injury-ravaged Manchester United side and a relegation-fighting Swansea in the last week to derail their season.
However, manager Arsene Wenger will hope it is a temporary blip as more and more fans lose patience with the Frenchman.
There is no better place for an Arsenal boss to win over the fans than at White Hart Lane, but he will have to do so without Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny who have both been ruled out with calf injuries.
Olivier Giroud was poor against the Swans on Wednesday having replaced Danny Welbeck in the starting XI, but the Englishman looks set to regain his place.
So who will Wenger select to close the gap on Leicester at the top?
