Arguably the most anticipated tie of the third round is the evening kick off on Saturday which sees North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham go head to head at the Emirates Stadium.
League leaders Arsenal host their fiercest rivals in a game which is surely bound to be full of great play and hopefully a goal or two. Both sides may be tempted to ring the changes for this meeting, however, it’s also worth noting that the FA Cup should be seen as a major opportunity for both club’s to claim some silverware this season. So, I’m sure whoever plays, both will be determined to make it through to the last 32.
Both sides are in good form, with Arsenal having lost just one of their last nine and Spurs just one defeat from their last eight in the league. Arsenal ran out 1-0 winners when the two sides met at the Emirates in the league earlier this season.
