Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur Preview & Prediction
The world of soccer will see the North London Derby Sunday afternoon when the two rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur face each other at the Emirates Stadium. This will be without a doubt the most anticipated game in Europe this season. This is one of the most important showdowns for every fan that lives in North London. Season in, season out, the North London fans have the pride in their teams that they support.
The Gunners extended their undefeated run to 15 games in all competition this past Tuesday after staging an impressive comeback during their Champions League contest, in which they defeated Ludogorets in Bulgaria. Back in the Premier League, Arsenal has picked up seven victories and two draws since the defeat to Liverpool back on the first day of the season. They sit in second in the Premier League table with 23 points, and they are tied with Manchester City and Liverpool
Tottenham remains undefeated in the Premier League after ten games this season. However, they were playing like a disaster. Tottenham was held to consecutive draws in the last three Premier League games. They are sitting in 5th in the Premier League table, but only 3 points separate them from the Gunners. Spurs recently played a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen in their Champions League campaign.
Prediction: The spread favors Arsene Wenger’s side to grab a huge win in the first London derby of the Premier League season against Tottenham. They do have a lot of players inactive due to injuries, but Wenger is used to dealing with injuries every season. Spurs have a problem with goal-scoring. They haven’t won in the last six matches in all competitions and managed only three goals during that span. They will be handed somewhat of a boost as Harry Kane is expected to be active after his injury. As things stand, Arsenal looks set to grab a huge victory against one of their rivals.
