Arsenal and Tottenham: Samir Nasri vs. Gareth Bale and Other Key Matchups


Mar 20, 2007
This weekend sees Arsenal take on Spurs, a tense match for both teams. Victory for the Reds is like spending the weekend in the Playboy Mansion and covering for Hugh Hefner. Comparatively, defeat is more like being kicked in the testicles by a runaway mule. It means a lot, basically.
Here is where I think the game will be won or lost:

Bacari Sagna and Samir Nasri vs. Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Gareth Bale
Two of the most in-form players in the EPL this season have been Nasri and Bale. Following lukewarm previous seasons that hinted at excellence, the two players have been primary attacking threats for both their club and country.
It’s ironic that they will be pitted against each other like this. On their respective flanks, they are backed up by Sagna and Assou-Ekotto, who will aim to get up and down the wings to help to create space for the attack.:target:
