Gunner's have made a perfect run in games after back to back. Premier league victories against Norwich and Burnley. Were quickly followed up by another win. Against AFC Wimbledon in Carabao Cup fifth round tie.
Next for the Londoners is a tough encounter against Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium. And the home side are looking forward. To another successful outing especially with several players available now.
Arteta had an issue with injuries and players suspensions. With Xhaka having received his matching orders against Manchester City. So is a September international break where he returned a positive Covid-19 results.
But he's now available and ready to be involved in these fixture. First for Arteta is a tough decision on who starts between the posts. With Aaron Ramsdale doing well keeping two clean sheet against Norwich and Burnley.
Leno did likewise when he took to the pitch against AFC Wimbledon. And he's a proven keeper over the years for Arsenal. A back line of Tierney, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and Tomiyasu.
Has kept two clean sheets in the premier league as well. While against AFC Wimbledon, Holding, Mari, Nuno and Cedric did likewise. Arsenal boss would have picked some positives.
On the latter and may be tempted to make some changes. Xhaka and Partey assisted by Odegaard in the attacking midfield is the best for the Gunner's. But Sambi Lokanga, Elneny and Maitland-Niles. Aren't giving up but are trying to push for starting places.
While Saka, Aubameyang and Smith have played well in the attacking side. But Arteta witnessed a very aggressive side of both. Pepe, Lacazette and Martinell against AFC Wimbledon. And may be a selection headache to the former City number two.
