The headline fixture of the upcoming Premier League gameweek is set to play out at the Emirates on Sunday, September 24th,
The matchup in question, of course, will see Arsenal act as hosts, in the latest edition of the North London Derby.
The Gunners will head into proceedings brimming with confidence, fresh off a midweek Champions League drubbing of PSV Eindhoven, and four wins from five in the Premier League.
Tottenham Hotspur, though, will prove no pushovers.
Rejuvenated under the watch of Ange Postecoglou, Spurs sit level with their arch rivals in the English top-flight, having too racked up 13 points from an available 15.
The matchup will be part of Gameweek 409 on Sorare Football, and 101 Great Goals has broken down the key statistical takeaways ahead of the game.
Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur Sorare tips
Match-winner last weekend, Leandro Trossard will be hopeful of seeing his efforts rewarded with a start in the derby on Sunday. After an underwhelming opening to the campaign, the Belgian international has since exploded into life, following a goal whilst on international duty with a crucial strike against Everton last weekend, and then a further goal and assist against PSV in midweek. With Gabriel Martinelli expected to miss out, Trossard should be thrown in from the off by Mikel Arteta, and, against a Spurs outfit ready to attack their Emirates hosts, take advantage of the spaces left behind.
Turning attentions towards Arsenal’s backline, Oleksandr Zinchenko will be expected to play as integral a role as ever in the Gunners’ build-up on Sunday. The Ukrainian has recovered from an early-season injury to reclaim his place at left-back, with his fine display at Goodison Park last weekend having given rise to a deserved Sorare score of 71. Dejan Kulusevski should keep him busy on the defensive end, but with the day’s hosts predicted to dominate possession, Zinchenko will be afforded plenty of opportunities to influence proceedings in the attacking third, too.
Another to have recovered from a spell on the sidelines to reestablish himself in the plans of Mikel Arteta of late, Gabriel Jesus will be hopeful of clinching a first league start of the term in the derby. Eddie Nketiah has performed admirably in his absence, but, after some recent profligacy in front of goal, looks set to make way for the more experienced centre-forward option on Sunday. Jesus, since returning, has found the net against both Manchester United, and PSV, and looks as good an option as any on the Arsenal side of things for Sorare this gameweek.
Turning attentions to the upcoming visitors to the Emirates, another Brazilian who will be intent on making an impact in the final third comes in the form of Richarlison. The former Everton man had, until very recently, of course endured nothing short of a nightmare campaign, with his withdrawal from proceedings whilst on the international front earlier this month having seen Richarlison, completely bereft of confidence, go as far as to break down in tears. Last weekend, however, could well prove to be the springboard for a timely revival. Introduced for ten minutes off the bench with his side trailing against Sheffield United, the 26-year-old single-handedly turned things around courtesy of a goal and assist, and could well be thrown in from the off against Arsenal as a result.
Guaranteed of a starting berth for Tottenham, on the other hand, will be James Maddison. Midfielder Maddison has enjoyed a scintillating start to life in Spurs colours, aptly showcased by his Premier League Player of the Month award for August. A Sorare season average of a hefty 78 points-per-game frankly speaks for itself, and Maddison will no doubt be keen to prove himself top dog, in a battle of two of English football’s very best creators, alongside Martin Odegaard.
Last up on our list of Sorare picks for the North London Derby comes Tottenham captain, Son Heung-min. Amid the recent struggles of the aforementioned Richarlison, South Korean international Son has been shifted to a more central role in the Lilywhites’ attack, a move which certainly paid dividends three weeks ago, when, in Spurs’ final outing heading into the international break, their skipper got off the mark for the campaign to the tune of a hat-trick. He may yet be shifted back out wide at the Emirates, but, a man for the big occasion, expect Son to make his presence very much felt against Arsenal.
