The Line: Arsenal +280/Draw +260/Tottenham +105, Over/Under:
In the English Premier League, Tottenham and Arsenal will play each other in a big North London derby. The match is set to be played at Wembley Stadium where Tottenham will be the home team. Winning this match will be very important to both teams not just because of the history of the game, but because both Tottenham and Arsenal are both fighting for a spot in the Champions League next season.
Arsenal enter this match in excellent form after the Gunners won 5-1 against Bournemouth over the week. It was an emphatic performance by Arsenal where they controlled 65% of the ball and completed 650 passes. Arsenal had 5 different goalscorers which is a huge positive as it shows that many of the players are in good form. Arsenal are only 4 points behind Tottenham so winning this match will be a great chance for the Gunners to close the gap.
On the other side of the coin, Tottenham have had a tough few weeks. Tottenham lost to Burnley last weekend and then they were beaten again by Chelsea midweek. During the midweek loss to Chelsea, Tottenham were very poor as they controlled the majority of the ball but failed to have any shots on target. Tottenham were clear in 3rd spot at the start of February but their recent results have meant that they are back in a fight for their position. It is going to be tough for Tottenham to turn their form around against top opposition like Arsenal.
Tottenham and Arsenal played earlier in the season at the Emirates Stadium where Arsenal won 4-2.
As far as this match is concerned, I am going to pick Arsenal to win this match. Tottenham have been losing recently while Arsenal are winning. Arsenal look more organized at the moment and I see them winning this match away from home.
