Tottenham vs Arsenal

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Sunday afternoon, north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal go head-to-head at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The game could be crucial in both teams hopes of European football next season.
Spurs’ recent Premier League form has been majorly inconsistent. Jose Mourinho’s team are ninth in the top-flight table, a point behind their eighth-place north London rivals. A finish as low as eighth could be enough for European football next season.
On current form, Tottenham may not even be good enough for a top-eight finish. A goalless draw at Bournemouth last time out means that the home side has won just two of their previous eight games in the Premier League.
Tottenham have won their last two home games in the top-flight and are unbeaten in three league matches on home soil. Their recent league games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have been low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last three matches.
The Gunners have looked strong in recent Premier League games. A 1-1 home draw with
Leicester last time out in the top-flight means that the visitors are unbeaten in four games in the Premier League. The point against the Foxes was not a bad one considering that they played over 35 minutes with ten men following Eddie Nketiah’s dismissal.
Arsenal have won their last two away games in the Premier League but had failed to win in their previous seven matches in the league on their travels before the two victories.
Tottenham look set to be without Juan Foyth and Japhet Tanganga through injury, while Eric Dier is suspended and Dele Alli is an injury doubt. Meanwhile, Arsenal will be without Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli, Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari due to injury. Eddie Nketiah is suspended and Mesut Ozil is a doubt.
