No doubt about that. Spurs have been improving as the season progressed and have some good record scoring goals as well as conceding. They are the joint top scoring team in the Premier League with Arsenal but where they differ is in the goals conceded and ofcourse in the style of play.
Tottenham miss Didier Zokora, Huddlestone, Younes Kaboul, Darren Bent and Gareth Bale. Arsenal start with Van Persie (he should atleast play 60-70 mins or substitute Bendtner and play 20-30 mins) upfront most probably with Eduardo. Senderos and Djourou would be at the centre of defence flanked by Traore and Hoyte on the left and right. Gilberto or Diarra should be starting the match with Denilson.
Tottenham is definitely a good team and if this young Arsenal team can get anything out of this match it should be a good result. Since it is a home match a victory would be sweet and would set up the return leg just nice. Lets hope staying up at 3.40AM is worth the fun. Tomorrow is a holiday here so it should be fine.
