Arsenal are ready to challenge Manchester City for the Premier league title this season and after a gun blazing performance in the Champions league on Wednesday night where they white-washed Psv Eindoven four goals to nil.

They will be brimming with confidence coming into the North London derby.

One of the highlights of their season so far was beating Manchester United 2-0.

Two important key battles of the match will be in the midfield and the attack.

whoever triumphed in the midfield and took his chances in the attacking third would get the North London bragging rights.

The best player right now at Tottenham is James Maddison, who was bought from Leicester City this season for 40 million pounds. He has been so excellent and was named Premier League Player of the month for August.

Maddison will be coming face to face with Arsenal midfield maestro and captain Martin Odegaard, who has been one of Arsenal best player and Arsenal joint top Premier League goalscorer this season so far.
