A weekend of derbies starts on Saturday morning with Tottenham hosting Arsenal at White Hart Lane. Both teams are in a hot streak of form right now but Arsenal are arguably the inform team in the Premier League with their win over Manchester City emphasising just how far Arsene Wengers team have come since last season. Alexis Sanchez looks set to miss out again here though as his hamstring injury has not healed 100%, Arsenal have managed to win without the brilliant Chilian though with Cazorla, Rosicky and Giroud stepping up when needed. Rosicky has a great record in derbies against Tottenham finding the net in three of the last six, including two winning goals. Arsenal's defence will have its hands full though taking on a Tottenham team that have been very impressive of late.
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last six home games and that includes wins over Everton and Chelsea. Spurs are definitely on the up and Manuel Pochettino's side are a handful. Harry Kane and Christian Erickson have been the key men this season and both look set to start and cause lots of problems for Arsenal here. Kane in particular was sensational against Chelsea and Tottenham put in a magnificent performance on that occasion if they team rises to the occasion again on Saturday morning. There have been questions about Tottenham's offence all year but Kane has been a revelation and it will be interesting to see how Arsenal try to deal with him as he is a work horse that has developed a nack for scoring important goals.
When I seen this line I had to look twice to make sure I wasnt making a mistake. There is no doubt Arsenal have been excellent of late but this is a derby and it is in Tottenham. For me this one should be a coinflip and I for one would not want to be on Arsenal at the given price. I like both teams to score here alot though as I see this one being open and good to watch, should be a cracking game of football to kick off a cracking weekend of football.
