We have a huge North London derby this weekend when Arsenal travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham in the big top of the table clash. The proximity these two have makes this an exciting fixture, with big local bragging right at stake, but their league positions also make this a huge one. Just one place separates them, Tottenham are in 5th position, while Arsenal are in 6th. However, both have one thing in common and that is that they want to be in the top four, something both will be striving for in the coming weeks. This is a huge game in the league standings, and a huge game for the fans, who will want to be the ones leaving Wembley with a smile on their faces.
Both clubs have struggled to get any momentum over the past few games and if they want to reach the top four that is something they will have to change in the coming weeks. Tottenham have been in slightly better form and have not lost in their last five games, however three of those have been draws, including last weekend when they drew with Liverpool 2-2.
Arsenal have only won two of their last five also, but unlike Tottenham they are not unbeaten. They have been beaten twice in recent weeks, picking up one draw too and that is something they must quickly work out. Things looked a little better for them last weekend when they comfortably took three points off Everton in a 5-1 victory.
Tottenham Betting Odds
Tottenham are favourites for the game and can be backed to win it at 21/20 with Betsafe- Go and open an account now! That represents good value, and is the betting selection for the game this weekend. While Tottenham have not been at their best in recent games, they have performed well and they showed great character to come from behind twice last weekend away at Liverpool. They know what this game means to the fans, and it is a huge clash that they simply have to win. Our Tottenham prediction is that they will come out and win the game, taking advantage of the suspect Arsenal defence, and keeping Arsenal’s top strikers at bay.
Arsenal Betting Odds
The biggest problem for Arsenal in recent weeks has been consistency, and until they find that it will be hard to back them against a fellow top club. They are a much bigger price to win the game than Tottenham, Arsenal are priced at 13/5 with Unibet, for those who fancy them to do well. However, we will not be backing them this week, they have a lot to prove before they can be fancied against a top club. There is no argument about their attacking options, they are very good going forward, but defensively things remain unsteady and that is what Tottenham look set to capitalise on this weekend. Many teams struggle to stop Tottenham from scoring goals, and it looks like being a tough weekend for this weak Arsenal defence against Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and many more.
