Monreal out, Gibbs back: Pre-XI to face Tottenham

David Ospina is the obvious choice in goal but the picking of the four men right in-front of him will not be so obvious.

Walcott looking forward to derby

The north London derby could not come any sooner for Theo Walcott. The 25-year-old was carried off on a stretcher in front of the away supporters, some of whom threw objects to which the player responded with a 2-0 hand gesture.

Crazy but title could be Arsenal’s – says fan

The Arsenal of 1998, Manchester City of 2012 and even Liverpool of last year will be nodding their head.
