It is the North London derby, one of the fiercest rivals in England. Arsenal and Tottenham are the two biggest rivals throughout their respective histories. There isn’t anything better once you defeat your local opponent. But apart from this, a lot of things are at stake here. We saw the Champions League race last season, small details were decided in the end. Head to head meetings could end up making a difference now, and both Pochettino and Emery have to be careful here.
Arsenal lost against Liverpool last week, and they did that pretty easily. The Reds exposed many weaknesses in the Gunners’ defensive line. David Luiz, who was supposed to be a player who came to London to strengthen up that part of the team, was in fact, the biggest problem. The attacking part of the crew was working just fine, and it was they who set the tempo in the opening half an hour against the Reds at Anfield. If they had a bit more composure, the Gunners might have scored first. In the last four games, Arsenal played, three concluded with both teams to score, and the same saw over 2.5 scores.
Following a good start against Aston Villa and a 3-1 win, the Spurs took a point on the road against Manchester City, 2-2. But after that they disappointed all by losing at home to Newcastle United with 0-1, destroying everything good accomplished so far. It was the first event after four straight in which both teams didn’t score, and the first one since the Champions League finals in which the Spurs couldn’t net. Though we need to say that Pochettino’s team dominated the pitch, but the ultra-defensive and a bit boring Newcastle’s style of play prevented the hosts from scoring in that match.

Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney and Konstantinos Mavropanos are all out for this match, but they were already injured for a long time ago.
The biggest deal for Pochettino should be the return of Dele Alli, who started training now. Kyle Walker-Peters is not clear for the upcoming clash, while Ryan Sessegnon won’t be available for the next two weeks at least.
We really expect goals here. It would be a massive surprise not to see at least three hits on the target for 90 minutes at Emirates this Sunday. Having in mind how both teams play and their attacking capacity, we strongly advise you to take this suggestion. Bet365 offers 4/7 for at least three goals, which isn’t bad at all. Even though the odds are not that high, the risk isn’t either.
Many might condemn us for this, and be a bit sceptical, but we believe that Tottenham can win this one. They are motivated to redeem after a shock against Newcastle and will give everything they have to bounce back also if Spurs managed to get away unbeaten from the Etihad, why not defeating Arsenal in this one. After all, Pochettino’s team is much better on the road than at home. The highest odds on their victory are provided by SkyBet, 14/5.
