Arsenal understands that the derby is important but not vital, since they can lose it and still have a point advantage, and they should be fine if they win their remaining games.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta hopes to have all of his best players healthy for the final stretch, but he’ll have to wait for a late fitness test on both Bukayo Saka and Ben White before making a decision.
Arsenal is four points ahead of Spurs in fifth place, and they are desperate for a win to cut the gap on their opponents and keep their Champions League ambitions alive.
Mikel Arteta is already without long-term absentees Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney, while Ben White, who has missed the previous two games, will have to hope for the best when he returns for his late fitness tests.
Manager Mikel Arteta just signed a new deal with the club as a reward for all of the progress made this season, and the club is gearing up to back him in the summer transfer window in an attempt to restore the club to its rightful place among the top.
Both the defense and the attacker will be evaluated before the game against Tottenham, according to Arteta.
“Ben is a doubt,” Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta told the press ahead of the North London derby. We’ll have to see if he’s feeling much better, and if Bukayo is feeling much better.
“Very difficult to rate [a chance] with injuries, it’s just how they feel today.That’s the last day we can assess them so we’ll have to see.”
