In the build up to another North London Derby today and the clash at White Hart Lane of Spurs and Arsenal our friend and artist Nazar Stefanovic (@nazarstefanovic) has brought you the graphic below. Adebayor may face a late fitness test and Spurs supporters will be hoping he faces his former club as he’s been their most impressive player this season.
Olivier Giroud has been involved in recent controversies but he’s still Arsenal’s main man up top with 12 goals and 7 assists he’s been involved in an Arsenal goal (scored or assisted) every 118 minutes which is an impressive statistic. Adebayor has topped the performance of the French International being involved in a goal for Spurs every 107 minutes. His return to the side has been welcomed by the fans and he’ll be missed if he does not make the starting line-up today.
The game has added importance today, it’s not just pride and bragging rights at stake today, both sides are playing for position in the race for Champions League spots. A Spurs win gets them within three points to fourth as it’s Arsenal above them however an Arsenal win puts clear day light between the top four and Spurs with a nine point gap and the Gunners would have a game in hand too.
An Arsenal win also puts them right back into the title race! After Chelsea’s slip in Birmingham yesterday the 2013/14 Premier League season has it all to play and the possibility of four teams being in the chase for the title!
