North London holds its breath
Arsene Wenger’s side have not lifted the English Premier League crown since 2004 but the Arsenal boss has, perhaps surprisingly, still managed to hang on to his job throughout this time. For Spurs fans the wait is even longer, with their last success coming 55 years ago.
With so much at stake it’s fair to say that this is one of the most eagerly awaited North London derbies in years, so this game is likely to be settled by small margins. One goal could prove decisive and the following www.oulala.com infographic compares the two main candidates that are likely to provide it.
Harry Kane edges it in terms of shots per game and shot accuracy but Olivier Giroud, who has gone off the boil of late, is more than capable of rising to the big occasion. There would be no better time for the Frenchman to deliver and if he does, he might just fire the Gunners right back into the thick of the title race.
Kane is valued sightly higher at 11.9M, compared to Giroud’s 10.9M on Oulala – will the English forward justify his inflated price tag and push Spurs closer to that elusive league title?
One thing is for sure – it promises to be an unmissable encounter at White Hart Lane!
