The North London derby is one of the most classic in all sporting events. The rivalry has gone on since well before the beginning of the Premier League with matches being played ever since 1887. Since the formulation of the Premier League, Arsenal has been the better squad, but in their last meeting on February 7, the Spurs beat Arsene Wenger's team 2-1.
Tottenham could easily beat Arsenal again tonight, as the Emirates outfit hasn't been at its best lately. They lost a home match to West Ham, a Champions League match to Dinamo Zagreb and to Chelsea. Many criticize Arsene Wenger's failure to make impactful trades during the trade window, as he only added Petr Cech in goal. No matter how good Cech is, Wenger should have brought in some midfield talent. Now, people are talking that if Wenger doesn't bring back a win tonight in round 3 of the Capital One Cup, his days could be numbered.
Tottenham are ready for anything the Gunners have to bring to them tonight. The Spurs have 9 points in the Premier League and are seeking to be a major contender for the remainder of the season. A win tonight would show the rest of the league that they are worthy of a top 4 finish and could even challenge the top 3.

Arsenal are slight favorites tonight at 2.40, but Tottenham is not far begind at 3.00. A draw, which could be the smartest line tonight, as these are well matched teams is listed at 3.60 and there are a ton of additional lines to choose from.
