The teams have been announced for our Capital One Cup clash at White Hart Lane, and Arsene Wenger has made a host of changes in the wake of our controversial 2-0 loss against Chelsea.
We are in the midst of an extremely tricky fixture list at the moment, and rotation is likely to prove key. We haven’t gotten the results we wanted recently, but you can’t blame the manager for rotating the team.
There could be some concerns at the back, with David Ospina shielded by Per Mertesacker and Calum Chambers. The giant German has only recently returned from illness, while Chambers looked extremely shaky during his last start.
Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini are paired in midfield, with Wenger opting for experience over youth – perhaps out of necessity rather than choice.
Aaron Ramsey is the only player in the side that you could really call a regular starter this season, with Olivier Giroud, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Joel Campbell all in and out of the side.

Thankfully Tottenham have tinkered with things a lot too, and have fielded a very young and inexperienced side in places.
Arsenal transfer news
This team is more than capable of getting the win, especially with the quality we have on the bench. We have to perform far better than we have been however, and there are a number of player with a point to prove tonight.
