Welcome back for our 11th Premier League prediction weekend of the 2020/21 season here at BettingTips.net. If you’re looking for top quality Premier League tips, betting info and stats for the weekend’s top fixtures, then you’re in the right place, so read on!
For our Premier League predictions today, we’re focussing on the North London Derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Jose Mourinho’s side are looking to keep their place at the top of the table against their struggling neighbours. Premier League tips, predictions & more to follow.
Tottenham find themselves at the top of the table for a second week running, as they followed up their impressive 2-0 triumph over Manchester City with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea. The Harry Kane and Heung-min Son partnership has reached another level, with Kane adding assists as well as goals in his new role. Key to their turnaround is the fact that Jose Mourinho looks to finally have put his stamp on the team, as more pragmatic game management has been on display in recent weeks. A Win for Spurs on Sunday would see them retain their spot at the top.
After ending last season strongly with an FA Cup win and kick starting this one by winning the Community Shield, Arsenal’s season has slowed down considerably. They now sit in 14th place, having lost more games than they’ve won – the most recent result being a home defeat against Wolves. Arsenal still have the 2nd best defensive record in the league, but their problem is at the other end. Aubamaynag hasn’t been at the races since signing his new contract and they miss creative service in midfield without Ozil. Our Premier League predictions don’t look good for Arsenal in this derby.
Arsenal are without a win in 4 North London derbies, as Spurs have won 2, with 2 ending in a score draw. Back in July this fixture was played in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium without fans, seeing Spurs run out as 2-1 winners. Tottenham will be further bolstered this week as they are allowed to have 2000 fans in the stadium because London is in tier 2 of England’s coronavirus restrictions. All this considered, our Premier League predictions don’t look great for Arsenal this Sunday. Arsenal’s last win, almost two years ago to the day, was an emphatic 4-1 win in a thriller at the Emirates.
Below, we’ve provided you with the results from the last 5 North London derbies as well as 3 interesting statistical highlights that we’ve used for this Premier League prediction weekend.
Having analysed everything above, our Premier League predictions today suggest a Spurs win in North London this coming Sunday.
Arsenal may be on a terrible run of form at the minute, but they do still manage to keep scorelines low. Moreover, after a frantic start that saw a 6-1 win over Man United and a 3-3 draw with West Ham, Jose Mounrinho has claimed his side down and taught them to be more pragmatic. With that in mind, it’d be naive to expect an end to end classic on Sunday – we’d rather expect it to be more akin to last weekend’s 0-0 with Chelsea. However, given recent form and the presence of 2000 Spurs fans, the men in Lilywhite should be able to see off this struggling Arsenal side without a great amount of difficulty. That’s why our top betting tip for today is a Tottenham win to nil, which you can back at odds of 3.5 with SkyBet.
