Arsenal and Tottenham will go head-to-head at the Emirates, as the north London derby takes centre stage in the Premier League on Sunday. 

Tottenham defeated Arsenal 2–0 in their first Premier League game of the season in December and will be looking to do the league double over their rivals this weekend. 

Spurs aren’t just looking to claim bragging rights on Sunday, but also the opportunity to inch much closer towards the top four. They are in seventh place, six points shy of the top-four zone. 

Arsenal, meanwhile, are 10th – seven points behind Tottenham- a gap they will seek to close on Sunday. The Gunners are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions. They drew 1–1 with Burnley in their last Premier League match before a 3–1 victory over Olympiacos Piraeus in the Europa League in midweek. 

Tottenham were also victorious in the Europa League in midweek, beating Dinamo Zagreb 2–0 to stretch their winning run in all competitions to five games. They beat Crystal Palace 4–1 in their last Premier League outing and will look to continue from where they left off. 

Team News

Arsenal: There are no injury problems for the Gunners, so Mikel Arteta will have a squad at full strength to choose from. 

Tottenham: Giovani Lo Celso, who’s been out with a muscle injury, is currently being assessed. Everyone else in the league squad is available for the trip. 

Prediction

Both teams are fresh off victories in the Europa League, but Tottenham appear to be the team in better form. They’ve emerged winner in the pair’s last two encounters and should go into Sunday’s affair brimming with confidence. 

However, it’s easy to see both sides scoring. Aubameyang has started to fire for Arsenal again, while Harry Kane, who’s the top-scorer in the history of this fixture, is currently in good goal-scoring form. Gareth Bale has also rediscovered his confidence and found his feet in front of goal. So expect this to be an entertaining affair, with both teams doing enough to get on the scoresheet. 

You can back both teams to score on Sunday.
