Match Preview

The Manchester Derby disappointed must spectators, but the London equal almost promises entertainment. Recent encounters delivered a total of 25 goals, including League and Cup, and surely the London rivals are more known for their offensive qualities than their defensive.

The Gunner’s will be looking for nothing less than a win to lead the table, albeit it could be temporarily since Chelsea have a game in hand.

The last time Arsenal was on the pitch, they cruised to victory at White Heart Lane in a pounding 2-1 victory over Everton. This capped what may be referred to as a perfect weekend following Chelsea’s shocking loss to Sunderland and both Manchester sides only managing a draw. A win over Tottenham will surely signal their intent and their manager Arsene Wenger will be desperate to secure this home win and put pressure on Chelsea and Man Utd.

Arsenal seems to be a team in form currently with key players coming back from injuries. From what could be considered their normal starters, only Almunia, Diaby and Vermaelen are now missing. Though some key players are facing fitness test following the midweek international games, such as Arshavin and Rosicky. However players such as Nasri, Song, Denilson, Walcott, Fabregas, Sagna and Clichy are all fit and reeling to go.

Tottenham also have cause to celebrate following the announcement, that their striker Jermain Defoe has been declared fit to play. Their defense will be looking to stop the Arsenal midfield and learning from history, we can expect clattering tackles, as a recurring feature in this encounter. As usual, Tottenham will be looking toward their winger Gareth Bale following previous strong performances, although the new found pressure and expectations may make it harder for him to maintain his current form.

Betting tip for Arsenal vs. Tottenham

Hotspur’s look to achieve their first win on Arsenal’s turf since May 1993 and judging by how they raise their game against the world’s best, it won’t be easy for Arsenal. This said, Tottenham usually are a stronger home than away side, losing three away games so far this season.

Arsenal has proved themselves to be serious title contenders with their away win against Everton and Manchester City this season, but another big test will come today. If they are to win the Premier League, they must win their home games, which they have struggled to do so far losing home against both Newcastle and West Bromwich.

In today’s London Derby we expect an entertaining match and at least three goals scored, why players looking for a secure bet could choose more than 2,5 goals in the match. At the same time we do expect Arsenal to dominate the game with Tottenham playing the counterattack, which could prove dangerous for the Gunners.
This said, we do believe Arsenal will win this one, as they have proved themselves against tough opponents earlier this season, while Tottenham looked somewhat behind the best in their encounter with Manchester United.

Betting Tip – More than 2,5 goals and Arsenal to win.
