The Derby of London Pits Arsenal Against TottenhamPublished November 6, 2016 by Florin P
Something’s got to give when invincible Tottenham travel to Emirates Stadium to face the hottest team in the Premier League (12:00 p.m UK Time).
Arsenal is the unexpected leader of the Premier League, tied with both Manchester City and Liverpool. They have an identical record, with more victories on the road than in front of their fans. Tottenham is just behind them and a victory in the London derby could propel them to the top. Unfortunately for them, they are in poor form and haven’t won a match in nearly a month.
Tremendous Pressure on Arsenal
Despite being tied for the lead with Manchester and Liverpool, Arsenal players have no reason to relax. Both their opponents are expected to claim easy points over the weekend and the odds of Chelsea failing are also slim. The bottom line is that unless they defeat Tottenham at home, they are going to concede their position on the podium.
The good news is that recent results have been amazing both at home and on the road. The team is scoring an average of three goals per match and lost a single match this season, in the opening round. They are currently the hottest team in the Premier League and are expected to play accordingly when Tottenham comes visiting. The Gunners had plenty of tough matches, but somehow managed to avoid injuries.
Tottenham Turns into a Streaky Team
After a relatively slow season start, the team from White Hart Lane found its pacing and won five games in a row in September. Last month was far worse and they failed to win a single match, while being held scoreless three times. Kane is still on the bench mending an injury and in his absence Tottenham looks toothless. It’s going to be difficult to recuperate the points lost recently at Emirates Stadium.
This is the most exciting game in the English first division, but one that has a certain favorite. It’s a pleasant surprise to see that bet365 Sports is still offering even odds on Arsenal to prevail. Punters should grab them right away before they drop because they hold tremendous value.
