Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspurs Predictions and Betting Tips
The Emirates is the stage for a pulsating North-London Derby this Sunday with the Gunners and Spurs going head-to-head for the 204th time in English football history. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Arsenals recent 2-1 victory over Spurs was their first in six against their North London opponents with Spurs winning three of the prior five North London derbies. Nonetheless, it is to be noted that the Gunner hasn't lost a North London Derby at the Emirates since 2010.
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Arsenal made a terrible start to the 2021/2022 Premier League season having lost all of their first three league games. An opening day loss to newly-promoted Brentford was followed up by humiliations against Chelsea and Manchester City. A wake-up call was more than needed for Mikel Arteta and his troops and it seems the Spaniard has managed to do just that as they head into this game having won three games in all competitions. A solitary Aubameyang strike just after the international break made sure of Arsenal's first league win at the Carrow Road before a pitch of a free-kick from Odegaard made sure of maximum points in yet another 1-0 win against Burnley. During the week, confidence was boosted even further with a league cup victory against AFC Wimbledon. Would we see them make it four on the bounce this weekend?
Nuno's Spurs have somewhat regressed following their flying start to the Premier League season. Three league wins in their first three games is a thing of the past as the North London side head into this game having lost their last two league games against London clubs. Although they managed a penalty shootout victory in the EFL Cup against Wolves, we can't deny that Spurs were dominated by Crystal Palace and Chelsea with the London clubs recording 3-0 victories against Nuno Espirito Santo. Harry Kane was amongst the goals against Wolves and the attacker would certainly be looking to add to his North London derby goals tally of 11 goals.
