11/8/2015 at 1100ET
The EPL is in full flow and this week the entertainment continues with Arsenal hosting Tottenham in what will be an amazing North London Derby. This game has everyone talking and the result will have huge implications of the ladder. Furthermore, it’s a huge derby so a lot of pride will also be on the line.
Spurs go into this game with win midweek in the Europa league. In addition, they have not lost a game in the premier league since the opening round of fixtures. These two components will give the side an incredible confidence boost as they head to the Emirates Stadium this weekend. When we look at this side, the defense is solid with a team of Belgian superstars in Jans Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld. In midfield is also effective as they have connected well lately with the likes of Dembele and Erikson playing superbly. Finally, they have plenty of goal scoring options with Lamela and Kane finding the back of the net regularly. This team is good and I like their chances this weekend.

Moving to the other half of North London and the gunners have just come of a massive loss midweek. Bayern Munich showed their class on Arsenal and the confidence has to be down. Having said that, this team has many superstars such as Alexis Sanchez and Ozil who will surely bounce back well. The problem Arsenal have is injuries and the team has many of their first team player out. This will cause them problems in this game since the team has not been able to rotate so fatigue may be a factor. Furthermore, the quality is also lacking with these names out.
Overall, I think this it Spurs best chance to beat Arsenal. They have been playing well and Arsenal are down on confidence. Tottenham are at an insanely high price and these odds are amazing value for us. I think that Tottenham has what it takes to win and with the price we are getting it is a no brainer to put money on them.
