Petr Cech or Daniel Ospina? Wenger delays keeper decision for Spurs clash

Wenger also waded into the diving controversy that has enveloped Spurs since their 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Manager Arsene Wenger admits that defeating Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium would be a huge result in the context of their season.

Pochettino said on Tuesday that "tricking" an opponent was now part of the game but, while he believes he knows what the Argentinian was getting at, Wenger went on to point the finger at home-grown players. But a week is a long time in the frenzied world of English football and by the final whistle at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, the Arsenal manager was all smiles as he reflected on the speed at which perceptions can change. How far was it an apology for diving? "I don't think he would", Wenger said.

"In my personal case? No".

He conceded that it was painful to miss big games, but it made him work harder to get back on to the pitch.

"I can not say if they look stronger or not than they were since their new signings".

But Aubameyang already has much experience of playing Tottenham - and boasts a fine record as well.

"I don't tell my players to dive", he said.

"We want them focusing on how we want to play the game, tactically and technically. They are quick and overall it was a first convincing performance". They extend the rules [a little bit]. "Every day, you hear something different in the media or whatever, something like that, but now that it's over, our team has been having kind of a rough go of things lately".

The AS Monaco playmaker was reportedly wanted by Arsenal in the summer and the Gunners came close to signing the Frenchman, as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, for whom a transfer fee was agreed with Manchester City.

But despite coming through unscathed, Pochettino has remained coy on whether the centre-half will retain his place for the visit of the Gunners.

With only five minutes left, defender Younes Kaboul headed a free kick past Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski to silence the Emirates crowd and record Tottenham's first win at Arsenal in 17 years.

"Overall, two players integrated well into our game and they looked as if they had played for us forever".

However, while Oblak would most certainly be the flawless replacement for Petr Cech, Arsenal do face a fierce competition from Paris-Saint Germain, who are also looking towards Jan Oblak to replace Alphonso Aerola as their main-goalkeeper.
