Tottenham v Arsenal Preview
It is a pretty even-looking contest on paper today and both Spurs and the Gunners have been in similar form in the league. The table below shows the respective results from the North Londoners’ past six matches and overall there is not much between them:
With the Lilywhites having secured a draw early in the season at the Emirates Stadium, this one could well be headed the same way. However, Spurs and Arsenal have improved since then and now both look like different teams. The White Hart Lane supporters have had plenty more to cheer about in 2015 and both teams are coming off big wins.
Head to head, Arsenal have bragging rights and in the last six meetings of these two they have lost just once in the Gareth Bale inspired 2-1 win at the Lane almost 2 years ago. The new kid on the block is the much talked about Harry Kane and him and Christian Eriksen surely pose the most likely sources of goals for the home side today. Arsenal will be relishing this match, with manager Arsene Wenger looking to put some distance between the bitter rivals with a famous away victory. In the race for a coveted fourth place in 2015 this will surely be one that will shape that final league table in a big way. Back in 2013 when Spurs did get their last North London Derby win they were above the Gunners in the table and it looked like a possible power shift but by the end of the season Arsenal were yet again able to get back on top – just.
For this match, it is very difficult to predict a clear-cut outcome but the bookmakers have Arsenal as favourites. One certainty is that the atmosphere will be great and it will be a proper dogfight. Worth checking out the bookie specials for this match at bet365 & BetVictor, too.
