What we can see is [Nicolas] Pepe can be a threat, [Alexandre] Lacazette has got link-up play and [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang has pace to burn – the three of them are a real menace.‘I think there’s goals in Arsenal… I think there’s big goals this campaign. The thing is getting it right. Will David Luiz stop doing stupid things and do what he’s good at which is defend first and foremost? I don’t know the answer to that and he doesn’t know the answer to that.‘This is going to be another absolute blinder of a game to watch. I think Arsenal are in the box seat.‘I think [Dani] Ceballos, who played too deep at Liverpool for me, will be the one to support the front three of Arsenal and I expect Arsenal to go on and win this football match.’ David Luiz had a shocker in Arsenal’s defeat to Liverpool (Picture: Getty)Nicholas expects Arsenal to triumph over Spurs as they have the ‘best balance’, and more ‘togetherness’ and ‘belief’ than previous seasons.‘It comes down to class, a bit of genius, luck… it might come down to VAR!’ Nicholas added.‘What we’re blessed with in this north London derby is we’ve got goalscorers on both sides, we’ve got creative players on both sides, we’ve got mistakes defensively.More: FootballBruno Fernandes responds to Man Utd bust-up rumours with Ole Gunnar SolskjaerNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira moves‘I just feel that Unai Emery has got something going at Arsenal, there’s a little more belief. I wasn’t happy with the performance at Arsenal but they lost not like they did before. There seemed a bit more togetherness.‘Other than silly defensive errors I just think Arsenal have more quality than Spurs do and I think their bench might be stronger.‘It’s about quality, creativity, speed and then getting the balance right. I think Arsenal slightly have the best balance right now and that’s why I expect the Gunners to win.’ Metro Sport ReporterThursday 29 Aug 2019 9:39 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link384Shares Comment Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal this weekend (Picture: Getty)Charlie Nicholas has backed Arsenal to come away from the north London derby with all three points as they have a more ‘balanced’ side than Tottenham this season.Spurs kicked off their Premier League campaign with a victory over Aston Villa, but have since drawn against champions Manchester City and were beaten at home to Newcastle last weekend.Arsenal, meanwhile, won their two opening matches against Newcastle and Burnley before suffering a comprehensive 3-1 defeat away to last season’s runners-up Liverpool.David Luiz was partly at fault for both of Mohamed Salah’s second-half goals at Anfield and Nicholas is far from convinced by the Brazil defender.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityHowever, the former Arsenal forward believes Unai Emery has the attackers at his disposal to capitalise on the current ‘confusion’ and ‘uncertainty’ at Tottenham.‘Are they selling [Christian] Eriksen or are they not selling Eriksen? [Mauricio] Pochettino has not been playing [Jan] Vertonghen which is another issue, [Toby] Alderweireld’s contract is up at the end of the season,’ Nicholas said on Sky Sports.‘There seems a little bit of confusion at Spurs at the moment and that’s created a little bit of uncertainty surrounding them.‘They were fortunate to get through against Aston Villa, they got a good point at Man City – but were probably fortunate – and then they lost last week.last_img read more
