Our Betting Tips

Local derbies are notoriously difficult to predict but this new Arsenal side look to be a vast improvement on last season. The pace of Nicolas Pepe in particular could pose the Spurs defence a whole host of problems.


Although there is a lot of attacking talent on show here it is likely to be a very tense game that suggests a close score line. There will be goals but not as many as some of the betting sites may believe.


Deflections don’t seem to count as own goals these days but with so much pressure on both defences not to make the mistakes that lead to a defeat to bitter local rivals there could be a costly slip up on show. The price for an own goal is definitely worth a go.


Best Odds




Head to Head

As would be expected for a local derby, the overall record between these two clubs is very close. Arsenal enjoyed the better results in the Premier League last season – with a win and a draw – while Tottenham won the EFL Cup tie between the two.


  • Arsenal’s defeat to Liverpool last weekend was their first in three Premier League games this season. At the same stage last year the Gunners had only just picked up their first points.
  • Tottenham have now won one, drawn one and lost one. Not the greatest form for a team that would be looking to compete in the title race after last season’s attempt.
  • The last time Arsenal lost to Spurs in the Premier League at home was back in 2010 when Younes Kaboul scored an 85th minute winner for Spurs to hand them a 3-2 victory.
  • Harry Kane was a notoriously slow starter until last season when he finally managed to score a Premier League goal in August. He managed two on the opening day but has not been able to find the net since.

Our Prediction for Arsenal vs Tottenham

Arsenal to win the match

This should be a typically close affair as both teams attempt to keep their cool while getting the win that will give their fans the local bragging rights. Although Arsenal still have a few defensive issues to sort out – and David Luiz does not seem like the answer – the attack has been strengthened and that could make all the difference in this one.
