Tottenham v Arsenal Premier League Preview, 10th February 12.30pm
Tottenham survived a tough trial at Anfield on the weekend in playing out a thrilling and dramatic 2-2 draw against Liverpool. That keeps the race for the top four wide open now as they move on to face their rivals in Saturday’s North London derby. Arsenal starts the weekend four points adrift of the Lilywhites and can’t afford to suffer a defeat in this or their shot at a top four will likely vanish.
Tottenham v Arsenal Betting Odds*
Spurs 21/20, Arsenal 12/5, Draw 13/5* (Betting Odds taken on February 5h, 2018 at 00:44 a.m.)
Tottenham News and Form
Spurs extended their unbeaten form in the Premier League to eight with a 2-2 draw at Anfield on the weekend, thanks to a late stoppage-time penalty from Harry Kane. That was a tough challenge for them on the road but back at home in the league Spurs are W5 D1 in their last half dozen at Wembley so they are going into this one with good from behind them. Overall this season at Wembley the Lilywhites are W8 D4 L1 in the top flight. They have kept back to back clean sheets there as well and with them having taken a clean sheet as well in their last home fixture against Arsenal, a Tottenham to win to nil with Bet365 is at 10/3 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 00:44 a.m.) for the game. Spurs have taken a clean sheet in almost half of their home games this season and 38% of their home games have been won to nil. Tottenham have averaged 2.15 goals per game this term and have conceded just the nine goals in their thirteen games. Harry Kane is the first goalscorer favourite which is no great suprise really given the scoring form that he has been in. Tottenham really needs the three points to keep driving on for a high finish.
Arsenal News and Form
The Gunners are playing catch up then to their rivals, starting a place behind Spurs down in sixth, but four points adrift. They can’t afford for that to get widened by losing this one. Arsenal destroyed Everton last weekend in the top flight and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got a goal on his debut for the Gunners. Arsenal’s away form this season has been pretty dire by their standards, posting only a W3 D4 L6 record on their travels. They have lost their last two back to back, going down against Bournemouth and Swansea and they are winless in three away games. The Gunners are just W1 D3 L2 in their last six Premier League away games. They have scored in each of their last four road games though and both teams to score with Bet365 is at a price of 1/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 00:44 a.m.) if you do fancy them breaking down the though Tottenham defence. Arsenal have conceded at a rate of 1.6 goals per away this season which isn’t great and they have a clean sheet in just 23% of their away games. Their defence does look a liability still for them and they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last six away games in the top flight. Each of their last five games in the league have managed to get above the 2.5 goal line. Can they earn themselves a massive three points in the North London derby?
Tottenham v Arsenal Head to Head
Arsenal landed a 2-0 home win over Tottenham back in November and that snapped a four-match winless streak that they were on against their rivals (D3 L1). Away at Spurs, Arsenal are winless in three in the league, losing two and taking one draw. Both teams have scored in six of the last eight meetings, but not in the last two, which have both finished as 2-0 wins for the home side.
Who will win – Tottenham v Arsenal Predictions
Tottenham are much stronger than their neighbours are at the moment and should be able to collect three home points against them. Arsenal’s defence still looks highly vulnerable and their away form doesn’t stack up this term. Spurs can get the win with a clean sheet.
