In the English Premier League, Arsenal are set to host Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium in North London. This is a big rivalry match so both the Gunners and the Spurs will be desperate to win this game for their fans.
Arsenal lost their last match as they were defeated 3-1 by Liverpool at Anfield. While the result was expected, Arsenal lacked fight and that was a big cause for concern. The defense was the biggest problem as the likes of David Luiz failed to contain players like Mo Salah. Despite the loss, Arsenal will be feeling upbeat as the team has played well this season and sit comfortably with 6 points from their 3 games. Arsenal have a strong record at home and they will hope that they can maintain that form in this match.
Looking at Tottenham, the Spurs were very poor in their last outing as they were defeated at home by Newcastle. It was a 1-0 loss and the result seemed deserved as Tottenham played very poorly. Tottenham have 81% of the possession but the team only managed to have 2 shots on target in the entire match. Newcastle managed more shots on target than Spurs with the Magpies only having 19% of the ball. The Tottenham midfield looks weak and they seem to lack creativity. Considering Arsenal’s attack, Tottenham may struggle in this match.
Tottenham and Arsenal played each other 3 times last season. Arsenal won their home Premier League fixture while Tottenham only managed a draw in the Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham managed to defeat Arsenal in the EPL Cup.
Both Tottenham and Arsenal will be desperate to win this match since the result will be huge to their fans. As far as predicting a winner is concerned, I am going to pick Arsenal to win this match. Arsenal have been the better side this season and they have managed to cause most defenses problem. With the support of their home crowd, I see Arsenal being good enough to win the North London derby.
