Putting four past Tottenham in his first north London derby, the Gunners are now unbeaten in their last 21 matches across all competitions. Also confirming their spot out of Group E, one more point for Arsenal will secure their spot as group winners. Tinkering with his squad in Europe and giving Arsenal’s youngsters a chance to impress, it will be the form of 18-year-old Emile Smith Rowe most impressing Emery. Scoring against Vorskla Poltava in his last appearance, the forward now has three in his last four for the Gunners.
As for the visitors, while they might sit just three points off top spot in the Azerbaijan national league, it has been a season riddled with inconsistencies for Gurban Gurbanov’s side. Losing four matches on the bounce back at the end of October and conceding six in their last Europa League clash against Sporting Lisbon, Qarabag now sit bottom of Group H. Losing the reverse fixture to the Gunners 3-0 back in October, they have also now remarkably lost seven of their last nine European outings. Shipping 12 in their last five, we’re backing Arsenal’s youngsters to enjoy another bright night in front of goal.
