Arsenal – Tottenham Prediction and PREVIEW

  • The weekend’s Premier League (PL) action kicks off with the 192nd edition of the North London Derby (NLD), one of England’s most passionate local affairs, due in no large part to Arsenal relocating from south of the river to Highbury in 1913, much to the annoyance of the nearest side, Tottenham Hotspur. The years that have followed have seen Arsenal claim much of the local bragging rights with the Gunners now holding 79 derby wins compared to Tottenham’s 61, although in recent years the contest has been very much even with away wins hard to come by.
  • Arsenal head into the game at the PL summit thanks to a five-game winning streak to start the season – matching their best ever start – and whilst their colours were lowered away at Manchester United in round 6, they bounced back just before the international break to beat Brentford 0-3 when 15-year-old Ethan Nwaneri made history by becoming the youngest ever player to feature in the PL. Coach Mikel Arteta has a number of injury concerns ahead of the game which could stretch the squad, but captain Martin Ødegaard is set to return.
  • Tottenham make the short journey across the local divide in fine form themselves after an unbeaten start to the season (W5, D2), and they could claim top spot with a win here, until Sunday at least. They’ll have to buck the recent trend in this derby game as they’ve struggled at the Emirates in league action in recent times, last claiming a win in their rivals’ backyard in 2010 (D4, L7 since).
  • With only one competitive win on their travels this season (D2, L1), and that was against a promoted side, coach Antonio Conte will be pleased that all three of his main strikers – Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Richarlison – scored during the international break, as he seeks to break his Emirates Stadium hoodoo and win his first game here (D1, L2).
  • Key battle: Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus will be gunning to score in his first NLD and extend his incredible record of never being on the losing side in his last 61 goalscoring games (W59, D2)! Looking to outdo him will be Tottenham’s Kane who has scored more goals in this fixture than any other player (13).
  • Hot streak: The current run of 16 league H2Hs without an away win is the longest in NLD history.
