Top flight English matches don’t come much more intense or fiercely contested than a North London derby and we have one to look forward to this weekend. It is Arsenal v Tottenham betting on its way from the Premier League on Sunday lunchtime and as well as bragging rights up for grabs here, there is an important three points as well as both of these clubs have title ambitions of course.
Arsenal in second place in the Premier League heading into the weekend level on points with Man City and Liverpool. Tottenham are only three points back of them in fifth as well so in what would appear likely to be a tight scrap for supremacy this season in the Premier League, the three points form the North London derby may go a long way down the line. While it is Arsenal running as the form team at the moment, they have failed to beat Spurs at the last four attempts in the top flight.
No Spurs manager has even gone unbeaten in their first five games against Arsenal in the top flight, but that’s what Mauricio Pochettino could do if he avoids defeat with his Spurs side on Sunday at the Emirates. But will his usually mean defence be able to withstand the attacking pressure that the gunners are likely to throw at them? Spurs have the best defence in the top flight with just five goals conceded, but Arsenal on fire in front of goal.
The Gunners have won seven of their last eight premier League games and are unbeaten in their last nine. In five of those seven wins they have scored at least three goals. So there is no question about their output and they have netted in all but one of their last 43 games against the Lilywhites in all competitions. Will they be able to break down the Spurs who are the only remaining unbeaten side in the top flight this season, but who have slipped to three drawn matches on the bounce? However, just recently Spurs took a fantastic win over Man City and can turn it on.
