Key player set to miss Tottenham v Arsenal clash after scan

The data below, provided by EA SPORTS, lead partner of the Premier League, demonstrates that the two sides are well matched when it comes to their performance in the final third. Tottenham is a -105 money-line favorite, meaning you would need to wager $105 to win $100.

Lucas Moura is "in contention" to start for Tottenham against Arsenal.

Sumpter is an applied mathematician who wrote Soccermatics, the book that shows how math works inside the game.

The defender will hope that he can push on from Wednesday's performance and keep his troublesome hamstring well-behaved, but the manager might be hesitant to thrust him into such an important match without being completely certain over his physical condition. In the 2.5 seasons since it was born, the Soccerbot is up 1,800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds.

Here is how we think the Gunners will line up in this encounter.

The United States global, speaking in London at Nike's 20th anniversary celebration of the Mercurial boot, has been linked to both Liverpool and Manchester United - his favourite club as a child. And they will be stood alongside each other at Wembley Stadium on Saturday as they battle for bragging rights in the Premier League. Former Gunner David Bentley crashed in a stunning early long-range effort to put Spurs ahead.

Mohamed Elneny is confident that Arsenal still have an opportunity to win the 2017-18 English Premier League title.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has admitted that Henrikh Mkhitaryan was a "big factor" in his decision to sign for Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Tottenham could already have a slight advantage going into the weekend's North London derby against Arsenal as Petr Cech is set to miss the game, according to a report.

Sumpter has identified where the value lies.

Arsenal pulled one back through striker Emmanuel Adebayor but Tottenham were not done, as midfielder Steed Malbranque tapped in from close range late on in the game.

In a letter in The Players' Tribune, he wrote: "After Arsenal, I bounced around a bit and went back to play for my local team, and then I was spotted by a scout from Watford who offered me a trial".
