While being in the 14th spot in the Premier League, Arsenal will face Spurs in the north London derby.

will face

ahead of their next Premier League match. North London derby is a bit more intense this year since the Spurs are at the top of the league while Arsenal is struggling to get back to the winning ways.

Arsenal are not so great at attacking this season and

Keown

insists that a change of formation or approach would solve the problem.

Aubameyang

and

Lacazette

have a little contribution on scoring or creation of chances.

Keown told the Daily Mail of the approach he would take into a north London derby date with Spurs on Sunday:

“A change of system could revitalise Aubameyang. He and Lacazette love playing together and the Frenchman being deployed from deep could rejuvenate that partnership.

“Arsene Wenger used to tell us: 'Be free in your mind.' He wanted every player to feel like he could express himself. I saw some of that freedom against Vienna.

“It's well-known now that Harry Kane drops deep and makes life difficult for opponents. He operates between the defence and midfield, making himself hard to pick up. Lacazette in that deep role could work well. Arteta has to decide between the back three or going with the four.”
