There are few matches in the Premier League quite as exciting as a massive derby. And make no mistake, the North London derby is one of the biggest. The neutrals will be licking their lips this weekend as the fans of Arsenal and Spurs will no doubt be biting their nails in anxiety.
The North London derby has produced a few thrillers over the years with plenty of goals and controversies. The two teams are coming into this one with vastly different form with the Gunners moving from strength to strength while Spurs have taken two heavy losses. Our Premier League predictions weekend has a tough call to make on this one nonetheless.
After a very shaky start to the season the Gunners have started to shape up after two wins on the spins against Norwich and Burnley. Those two fixtures could not have come at a better time heading into the North London derby as Arsenal now looked geared up to face their biggest rivals. The biggest positive for the Gunners coming into this fixture is that they now have an all but fully fit squad. Having been ravaged by injury and the Coronavirus, Mikel Arteta has a full complement of players to choose from on Sunday which could help the Gunners to snatch another derby day win. Our Premier League predictions may just lean towards the Gunners for this one.
Spurs could not have started their Premier League season any better under new management Nuno Espirto Santo as they won their first three games of the season which included an impressive win against last year’s title winners Man City. It would seem that winning manager of the month put the mockers on this Spurs side as they were subsequently beaten handsomely by Crystal Palace and then beaten at home by a strong Chelsea side. Spurs have looked abject in the recent fixtures and will need to dig deep on Sunday if they want to knock the Gunners over.
The head to head record between these two giants of English football has been fairly close in recent years which makes our Premier League predictions today that much more difficult to make. The overall record favours Arsenal by a significant degree but Spurs have arguably gotten the better of Arsenal in their last five fixtures. Spurs have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five meetings against the Gunners although they lost their most recent fixture with their North London rivals. Our Premier League tips betting on a draw here nonetheless.
This is one of the toughest fixtures to call in the league without a doubt. No matter the form of the two teams heading into the fixture, you know that they will both be up for this fixture which is why it always produces such a fiery affair. As such, you should take in a couple of our Premier League predictions today to help you make an informed betting decision on the weekend.
In all honesty, this fixture could swing either way but what we can stay is that there are bound to be goals. This is never a fixture that results in a dull viewing experience for the fans. There are typically goals aplenty which is why our Premier League predictions weekend thinks that you would be wise to opt for a “score draw” betting market. You should look to take no as many Premier League tips predictions as you can before betting on this one.
One thing we know for sure is that Sunday is going to bring with it one of the most entertaining games of the Premier League weekend. Arsenal and Spurs very rarely play out a boring affair with goals typically flying in left, right and center. The Gunners will feel bullish heading into this fixture with all their players now fit and two wins on the spin. Spurs taking two heavy losses in a row will also only add to their belief that they can get one over on their North London rivals.
Spurs will need to steady the ship after a tough couple of weeks but with the talent they have in their squad, there is no doubt that they can make their mark on Sunday against the Gunners. While these fixtures can go either way, our Premier League predictions are leaning towards a score draw for this match. Both teams have leaked goals this season and both teams will be up for this match.
