The match

This North London derby is the final game in this weekend's set of Premier League fixtures. Tottenham are sixth in the table, two points behind visitors Arsenal but with two games in hand. By the time this match begins, Tottenham could be seven points behind West Ham in fourth. That will be the case if the Hammers beat Leeds United at home earlier on Sunday afternoon. However, Tottenham would at that stage have four games in hand on West Ham. Midweek saw Tottenham lose at home to Chelsea and be knocked out of the EFL Cup. They have only won two of their last five games, one being a come-from-behind win over League One Morecambe in the FA Cup last weekend. The postponement of Premier League and Europa Conference League games has interrupted the good start that new coach Antonio Conte had made since taking over. Four of their last five home league games have been won but they only have two clean sheets in their last nine matches.

Arsenal have earned 18 points from their last 10 league games, the same total as their opponents. Over the 15 game mark though, they have won four more points than Tottenham. The Gunners lost their first three league games of the season, while Tottenham won their first three fixtures. It's been a great comeback for Arsenal to reach fifth in the table, though they do tend to rack up the points against the lesser sides and not do so well against the very best in the Premier League. They did beat Tottenham 3-1 at home earlier in the season but are Tottenham one of the very best? They weren't earlier in the season. Away form still needs some improvement with four wins but five defeats. The last two on the road have been won with nine goals scored. They were against out-of-form Leeds and Norwich. Before that, they'd lost at Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton. Last weekend saw a weakened line-up lose at Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round but that was followed by a goalless draw at Liverpool in the EFL Cup. Three of their last four Premier League away games have seen both teams score. A bet on that stat coming up on Sunday is the tip here.

Key Statistics

  • The reverse fixture saw Arsenal win 3-1.
  • Five of the last six games between these two sides have seen both teams score.
  • Tottenham have two clean sheets in their last nine games.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the last five Arsenal away league games.

The bet of our experts

A draw wouldn't be that helpful for either of these clubs, especially if West Ham win this weekend. Tottenham struggled against Morecambe and then lost to Chelsea, so not ideal preparation. They are also finding it difficult to keep clean sheets. Arsenal have made improvements this season but still aren't that great on the road, particularly against top sides. Go for both teams to score in this match.
