Kick Off : 20:00 BST
Venue : White Hart Lane, London
The Premier League fixture between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal will take place at White Hart Lane on Wednesday 14th April 2010, kick-off set for 8:00 PM. For both sides there can be no more slip-ups since this is a season-defining contest for the Spurs as it is for Arsenal, as Tottenham forward Peter Crouch has declared. If there is one antidote for Tottenham’s FA Cup semi-final loss it is a premier league victory over Arsenal, the first one in a decade. It would keep them in contention for the fourth Champions League spot, as well as all but ending their hated rival’s title hopes.
The match could also see the return to the pitch of former Tottenham player the controversial Sol Campbell, who has not played at White Hart Lane since October 2005. The years since the split have done nothing to lessen the antipathy towards him from the Spurs most faithful and the likely hostile environment will add some more spice to what promises to be a red-hot match.
Tottenham’s club captain Ledley King is coming back against Arsenal after a seven-week absence from injury. Wilson Palacios is suspended and Niko Kranjcar is out.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Robin van Persie will return to the squad five months after rupturing ankle ligaments. Alex Song is not fit to play.
The Gunners have reason to feel confident about his fixture. Not only they are fresher than their hosts, Arsenal have the recent history on their side. Should they win or draw the match, they will set a club record of 21 consecutive first league matches without defeat against the Spurs. In fact Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 20 EPL meetings with Tottenham. The streak currently stands as the Gunners’ longest unbeaten run against another team in the competition.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has conceded that his side must win all of their their remaining five matches of the season to have a chance of catching table leaders Chelsea, who are three points ahead and have a better goal difference. With victory as the only option, Wenger will bring fit-again Dutch forward Robin van Persie back into his squad for his first appearance since last November. Curiously the Spurs trashed Arsenal 5-1 at home in the League Cup semi-final game back in January of 2008, a feat they would like to repeat this time.
My prediction: 1-2
