It’s the second leg of the North London derby of this season where Tottenham host Arsenal at White Hart Lane. The two points separating the teams only add some edge and excitement to a much expected and watched match by a great number of fans from all over the world.
Arsenal is on a winning streak of five matches despite having some of their most important players injured. Alexis Sanchez is tipped to return to help continue the Gunners’ good run even if Arsene Wenger stated the striker might not be fit, attributed mainly to the change of goalkeepers with David Ospina stepping in effortlessly into Szczęsny’s shoes. Add that to the fact that Koscielny returned from injury to bring some stability into the backline, Bellerin has been integrated successfully in the team and you have the recipe for why Arsenal have been keeping four clean sheets in five matches.
Tottenham has three wins, one draw and one defeat in their last five matches and their latest result is a 3-0 win over West Bromwich. The hosts have no injury worries and even welcomed back Nabil Bentaleb from the AFCON and the player could get to start if he passes the fitness test. Tottenham is tipped to succeed only if Harry Kane will find his scoring boots. If not, the duty will pass on to Eriksen or Lamela. The Spurs have only one win against Arsenal in seven matches and it dates back to 2013 while 2012 witnessed identical 5-2 wins by the Gunners.
The match at the Emirates ended in a 1-1 draw, and Tottenham will take pride in winning against Chelsea and Everton this season when playing at home. Nobody is denying their ability to win here, but with the way the Gunners have been playing lately, it would be unfair to deny them their share of the spoils. Özil, Giroud and Theo Walcott are also in great form which is why Arsenal was given 2.10 odds to win as opposed to Tottenham’s 3.30 from Titan Bet.
