Arsenal vs Tottenham: Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are key to tomorrow’s result, says Merson

Arsenal host Tottenham at the Emirates in the biggest game between the two sides in recent years.

Spurs sit four points clear of the Gunners after 11 games of the Premier League season after finishing above them for the first time since 1995 last term.

Sanchez and Ozil are both out of contract at the end of the campaign, with the pair linked with January exits.

They have struggled on the pitch in the opening months of the season, contributing just two goals between them in the league.

But Merson says they are both crucial to any chance Arsene Wenger’s side have tomorrow.

When asked which players from either side would decide the result, Merson told Sky Sports: “Alexis Sanchez and Ozil.

“I think it’s all down to them.

“I think if they have the games that they are capable of playing, I think Arsenal have got every chance, I really do.

“But the first goal for me is a big goal. If Arsenal score first then they can sit back and play counter-attacking football.

“I think Tottenham struggle when teams sit back, we’ve seen Swansea go there and Burnley and they’ve struggled.

“But if they score the first goal, I think Arsenal open up and I just don’t see the fight in Arsenal to come back if they fall behind.”
