3. DANNY WELBECK vs JAN VERTONGHEN
The duel between Welbeck and Vertonghen will be an enticing one to watch, as pace goes one-on-one with physicality. Welbeck has looked menacing in all games he played for Arsenal so far, getting behind the opposition defenders quite a few times even though his finishing skills had come under question a few times. Against Spurs, he would have his task cut out even further, pitted against Verthongen.
The big Belgian hasn’t had a great time recently and is slowly building his game under Pocchettino and would love the test against the pace of Welbeck. With Pochettino yet to finalize his main centre-backs, with Younes Kaboul, Vlad Chiriches and Federico Fazio also in the mix, Verthonghen need to step up and deliver soon. He would also have a role to play in the opposition box, with his strong physique and aerial ability being an advantage during set pieces. With both teams still yet to get going, a win would be essential for both teams and these two will definitely be key for their respective teams.
