Arsenal handed timely double boost ahead of Tottenham showdown


All associated with Premier League giants Arsenal have, on Thursday evening, been afforded a timely boost.

Mikel Arteta's troops are of course set to return to action in short order.

Amid the tense battle for a top-4 berth in the English top-flight, the Gunners have made the short trip across north London, for the latest chapter of their historic rivalry with Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal head into the matchup sitting four points clear of Antonio Conte's troops, in the knowledge that a victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will ensure their spot back in the Champions League for the 2022/23 campaign.

Spurs, though, are too expected to emerge all guns blazing, aware that they, for obvious reasons, simply cannot afford to slip to a defeat.

Saka spotted

As alluded to above, though, ahead of the fast-approaching kick-off in the English capital, it is the visiting Arsenal side who have seen their chances afforded an altogether timely boost.

This comes in the form of confirmation that key performers Ben White and Bukayo Saka, both labelled as major doubts for the clash owing to injury, have been spotted alongside the rest of Mikel Arteta's squad on Thursday night.

The two English internationals, as a result, are expected to be fit and available to feature from the off against Spurs.
