Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur. Prediction and Preview. Probable Lineups, Team News, Stats and more
The derby between Arsenal and Tottenham will take place in London on 26 September. This game will take place at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday, kick-off at 21.00 IST.
The North London derby remains one of the most crucial confrontations in world football, but each year it loses its attractiveness in terms of spectator interest: not long ago, Arsenal and Tottenham were rivals for a place in the top-four, but now the Europa League looks like the limit for these teams.
What kind of football will the opponents show and who will take home the three points? Parimatch News brings you up to speed.
Arsenal News & Current Form:
Arsenal were left without European competitions as a result of last season and now they can focus all their energies on the domestic championship. Moreover, the management have confirmed their serious intentions for the new season by investing more than 100 million euros in transfers.
In the Сarabao Cup, the Gunners enjoyed a comfortable two-game winning streak, beating West Bromwich 6-0 and Wimbledon 3-0 to reach the last eight.
In the Premier League, the Red and Whites are 13th after five rounds. After a poor start, the men of Mikel Arteta won their last two games – against Norwich 1-0 and Burnley 1-0.
The team’s weakest element so far has been its attack, with just two goals against their opponents.
Tottenham Hotspur News & Current Form:
Tottenham, after all, have made their way into a new competition, the Conference League, where they have already managed to split the points with Rennes from French League 1 (2-2).
The start in the League Cup was a tough one. The Purple-Whites progressed to the last eight against Wolverhampton through a penalty shoot-out. Before that, they managed to get back on track by scoring two goals to level the game.
In the English Premier League after five rounds, the visitors have three wins, which bring nine points and seventh position. The last two games saw two defeats – to Crystal Palace (0-3) and Chelsea (0-3). Their poor attacking performance, which produced only three goals, should not be ignored.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction:
Arsenal regularly score against Tottenham in their EPL home games. This streak has been going on since the beginning of the 21st century. It is likely to be continued. Will Spurs be able to respond? More likely yes than no. It’s high time for Harry Kane to wake up, and the recovery of Son Heung-min should be instrumental to the quality of Tottenham’s attacking performance as he is the team’s main attacking force. We think both teams will score. This bet has played in five of the previous six North London derbies. As for the outcome, Arsenal will not lose.

We say: both to score.
