Local derbies are always in the spotlight of the media and the fans as well. The rivalry heats up the atmosphere even more. Derby games are the time and place when heroes and idols are created. This North London derby is older than a whole century. It developed naturally since their stadiums were rather close to each other. Both Arsenal and Tottenham accept each other as their fiercest rivals. The next North London derby takes place on the Emirates on Sunday. The Gunners are currently the squad that’s in the best form in the Premier League. However, right behind them is their next opponent. The soil looks absolutely fertile for an exciting and memorable game.
At the moment Arsenal is in their prime with 5 consecutive wins. They hold the 2nd place in the Premier League, but they have the same number of points as the leader Manchester City. The Gunners pulled themselves together and are back on track after a fairly rough start of the season. Arsenal has another tough game ahead before the encounter on Sunday, the away match with Bayern Munich. Nevertheless, they’ll have to make a huge effort to become the better of the 2 games.
The Gunners slowly, but surely are starting to show consistent results. It’s becoming easier for us to predict their performance. In the last 5 games they’ve conceded 3 goals and scored 5 times more than that. Their latest reinforcement Alexis Sanchez has proven to be a key player. He and Giroud are among the top 10 goal scorers in the Premier League. However, Tottenham can’t prevent the danger just by watching out for these two players. Arsenal’s squad is full of individuals who can singlehandedly set the outcome of the game. It’s easy to say that Arsenal’s best defense is a good offence.
The coach of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has been experiencing severe problems caused by injured players. Even with a depleted squad somehow he managed to bring the Gunners to the top of the table. This depleted squad managed to defeat the praised by many Bayern Munich. Considering that fact Arsenal should easily defeat the Spurs.
Injured: H. Bellerin, T. Walcott, A. Oxlade-Chamberlain, M. Arteta, A. Ramsey, D. Ospina, J. Wilshere, T. Rosicky, D. Welbeck.
The Hotspurs have always been in the top half on the Premier League. They’ve had their ups and downs. Tottenham has never managed to triumph and go home with a title whereas their more fortunate rival has on several occasions. The lilywhites consistent performance currently puts them on the 5th place in the Premier League, 5 points behind their Sunday opponent. It’s easy to realize Tottenham just like Arsenal tends nurture offensive play style. The Lilywhites have a rather tough time playing away matches. So far they have 2 wins, 2 draws and they’ve suffered 1 loss on their away games. Even when encountering mid to low tier clubs Tottenham struggles to be the better. The clash on Sunday is like nothing Tottenham encountered so far this season besides their match with Manchester United. Even then the Spurs went home with a loss. Considering the facts we pointed out so far it’s absolutely reasonable to look towards Arsenal as the winner of the upcoming match. Nonetheless, Tottenham can prepare a surprise for the busy and preoccupied Arsenal.
The head of Tottenham’s squad, Mauricio Pochettino can’t argue that he has injury players too. He’s aware that Arsenal has the upper hand, but that doesn’t mean that the Spurs will go home without a fight. The questions is, can they push it too hard and overwhelm Arsenal on Sunday? It’s hard to say they can’t, because they’ve done it in the past. The upcoming match shouldn’t be any different than the previous ones.
Injured: C. N`Jie, D. Rose, N. Chadli, T. Caroll, H. Son, N. Bentaled, A. Pritchard
History tends to repeat. Statistics are the backbone of any betting prediction. The past results tell us Arsenal will claim 3 points on Sunday. These 3 Valuable points will guarantee their 2nd position or even take them ahead of Manchester City. And maybe for a moment Arsenal will be the leaders in the Premier League.
We can’t rely solely on past events and past results. Football is not an exact sport, although statistics can help quite a lot. In their past encounters there have always been goals, at least 1 with the exception of their clash in 2009. One thing is for certain, both squads are in a scoring frenzy.
Enjoy in the thrill of the showmanship these players will show on Sunday. Spice up the joy with a bet that will maybe bring you some extra cash.
