Tottenham fans concerned with one key call vs Arsenal, Gunners faithful delighted with crucial change

Tottenham fans concerned with one key call vs Arsenal, Gunners faithful delighted with crucial change

As with any starting line-up, neither Tottenham fans nor Arsenal supporters are going to be entirely happy with the team put out by their respective boss.

It’s been another mixed reaction ahead of the north London derby, with Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to start Moussa Sissoko in midfield raising some question marks, although given Harry Winks is arguably not quite fully fit yet, it seems to make sense.

However, the reaction hasn’t been overly kind on the French international, as he clearly still hasn’t won over all the supporters following his move from Newcastle United last year.

What better stage to finally change their opinion though, as if he were to make himself a hero on Saturday, the mood around him will quickly change as he continues to prove his worth to Pochettino.

With regards to Arsenal, Arsene Wenger infuriated many with his decision to drop summer signing Alexandre Lacazette to the bench against Man City last time out prior to the international break, but he’s seemingly learned the lesson and brought the Frenchman back into the XI this time round.

It will be a relief for Arsenal fans, as having seen him benched for the trip to Liverpool earlier in the season too, it would have been concerning to see Wenger show a lack of faith in him in big games.

Nevertheless, he’s involved from the start this time round after scoring off the bench at the Etihad, as he takes his place alongside Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in a formidable attacking trident that will be tasked with downing Spurs.

It looks like Arsenal fans are happy with the change…
