Tottenham vs Arsenal: Match Preview & Betting

It’s another cracking game in this eventful month of derbies as Tottenham Hotspur host Arsenal at The White Hart Lane in what promises to be an entertaining 184th North London Derby.

It’s been a good season for Tottenham as they expect to finish above Arsenal for the first time in 21 years since Arsene Wenger took over.

Match Preview

Tottenham are four points off the League leaders Chelsea and have to win this game to build pressure on the Blues who travel to Goodison Park to face Everton.

Tottenham have progressed considerably this season and are expected to have an upper hand going into the game.

The Gunners however, after a disastrous couple of months have finally won three games in a row for the first time since January. Arsenal have looked positive since the change in formation and have to keep the momentum going.

If Arsenal have to have any chance of making top 4 this season, they simply can’t afford dropping points at White Hart Lane. However, it will be very difficult for Arsenal as Tottenham have won 47 points playing at home this season, the highest in the League.

Form

Arsenal are high on confidence coming into this having defeated Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final and ending their hopes of any silverware this season. They would love to do the same to Tottenham.

Arsenal have won three of their last five Premier League games. Tottenham have the best record in the League having taken all 15 points in their last five games. Tottenham are in a great run coming into this.

Team News

Danny Rose returns for Tottenham and is training but will not start. Erik Lamela, Harry Winks are all out and might miss the remainder of the season.

Shkodran Mustafi has not quite recovered from injury and will sit this one out. Laurent Koscielny picked up an ankle injury against Leicester and whether he starts or not is also a major concern for Arsenal. But Lucas Perez and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain are back in training for Arsenal.
