The Gunners won the reverse encounter 3-1 earlier this season.
During their 2-1 triumph over Leeds United on Sunday, Arteta’s team controlled 63 percent of the ball and had 19 shots on goal (8 May).
Arsenal will “pick and choose their moments” against a “dangerous” Tottenham team, according to Whelan.
“I think Arteta will be cognizant of that four-point edge,” he told Ewan Kingsbury of Football Insider.
“He’ll be incredibly respectful of Tottenham’s front three.” He’ll prepare his Arsenal team accordingly.
“Under Conte, Tottenham are a different beast, and they’ve proved that their lethal assault can demolish any team.”
“Even if a win secures a top-four finish, I don’t think Arteta would go there and hurl everything at them.”
“He’ll have a solid strategy.” Going forward, he’ll have to rely on his strengths, which include Martinelli and Saka in those broad areas.
“I believe they’ll choose their moments and attempt to play on the counter.”
“They have the talent to take advantage of those opportunities when they arise.”
“I’m sure Conte will be mindful of that threat.”
