EPL London Derby Arsenal vs Tottenham Betting Picks and Preview

1 share, 114 points

The North London derby is the association football local rivalry in England between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, both of which are based in North London. Fans of both clubs consider the other to be their main rivals, and the derby is considered by many to be one of the most famous and fiercest derbies in the world.

Arsenal vs Tottenham, 4.30pm GMT

After a painful period of behind-closed-doors North London derbies, supporters prepare to arrive at the Emirates Stadium in masse to witness Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur lock horns on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners enter this game on the back of a 3-0 EFL Cup success against AFC Wimbledon, whereas Spurs needed penalties to get over the line against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

It’s a proverbial Cup Final for both Arsenal and Tottenham every season and this North London derby is no exception to that fiery trend. Mikel Arteta will be desperate to avoid a derby disaster as he looks to temper fan frustration from a poor start to the season, while Nuno Espirito Santo gets his first taste of the rivalry.

Arsenal was victorious when these sides met in this fixture last season, with Arteta masterminding a 2-1 win over Mourinho, despite Erik Lamela scoring a Puskas-worthy opener with his world class rabona in the first half. The Argentine went from Jekyll to Hyde in the second half as he received a red card, while Arsenal rallied to win 2-1 thanks to Martin Odegaard and Alexandre Lacazette. They have not won consecutive league games since doing the double over Spurs in 2013/14.

Arsenal come into this contest edging the form after a terrible start, but that said form means nothing in these derby’s.
