Competition: Premier League
Market: Arsenal and Tottenham
Odds: 8/11 @ William Hill
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur square off this weekend in the North London derby at the Emirates Stadium. Their latest encounter promises to be a competitive affair given the form of the two sides in the Premier League. Both sides are enjoying strong starts in their domestic division, and have played out some enthralling derby games in the past, which means Sunday’s encounter could be an entertaining spectacle.
Arsenal are joint-top in the Premier League after 11 games, and are favourites to pick up all three points as a result of their superior form. The Gunners have won five consecutive games in the top-flight, beating the likes of Manchester United and Everton in recent weeks, while boasting three wins in a row on home soil. However, Tottenham did win the last North London derby in the league, and aren’t to be underestimated due to their impressive form this season.
Spurs are enjoying a 10-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, and have beaten Manchester City in recent weeks. While wins haven’t come as regularly for the Londoners, they have been hard to beat in all competitions. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have drawn five of their 11 outings this season, and are likely to settle for a share of the spoils at the Emirates rather than risk losing by going all out for the victory.
Away from home, Tottenham have lost just once in five away games, and drew in Arsenal’s backyard in this fixture last season. This weekend’s meeting could well go the same way.
