These big Duo prepare for crucial North London Derby
League leaders Arsenal head to top four chasing Tottenham on Sunday for the latest edition of the North London Derby.
The Gunners won the reverse fixture 3-1 earlier in the season
Surely and may well need maximum points to maintain their five-point lead over closest rivals Manchester City
And wwhile Spurs are in desperate need of three points as they bid to force their way into the top four.
However, Arsenal will be looking to take all three points today
Arsenal saw a five-game winning run in the league ended by Newcastle last time out as they were held to a 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium, although they have since brushed Oxford aside in the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory.
Mikel Arteta’s men were perhaps unlucky not to win that game but they can get back to winning ways against Spurs on Sunday, with the hosts struggling for consistency.
Tottenham have won just one of their last four at home, losing to Newcastle, Liverpool and Aston Villa, and a strong Spurs lineup laboured to a 1-0 win over Portsmouth in the FA Cup last time out.
Spurs look a little disjointed at times and a win for Arsenal stands out as our main bet for this fixture, as the Gunners chase a first victory at the home of their local rivals since an EFL Cup success back in 2015.
Clean sheet unlikely for visitors
Spurs’ home form carried them earlier in the campaign but recently they have struggled, managing just two wins in their last six across all competitions.
And however, they have only failed to score in one home fixture this season and they should at least be able to get on the scoresheet on Sunday, so a 2-1 win for the visitors has some appeal in the correct score market.
