BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Sunday afternoon, Tottenham host arch-rivals Arsenal in what could be a massive north London derby in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho’s team will kick-off this contest as leaders of the Premier League. However, the home side is only ahead of reigning champions Liverpool courtesy of their superior goal difference.
Last time out the team from north London drew 0-0 with another capital rival Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It may not have been a victory, but the result showed that Spurs can take something from tough away matches.
The draw extended Tottenham’s unbeaten record in the English top-flight to nine games. It did, however, end a winning run of four games in the Premier League.
Spurs are unbeaten on home soil in the Premier League since the opening day of the season when they suffered a 1-0 loss against Everton. Since that loss, Mourinho’s team has won two and drawn two of their league matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham are unbeaten against Arsenal in four matches too, having recorded two wins and the other two games finishing in draws.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is experiencing his first really difficult spell as a head coach. The visitors head into this clash on the back of one win in their last six Premier League matches. To make matters worse they have also lost four of those six games.
Arsenal have won just four of their last 16 league matches on their travels, having also won just two of their previous seven top-flight games away from home.
Tottenham will be without centre-back Toby Alderweireld due to injury, while Argentinian playmaker Erik Lamela is also a fitness doubt.
Arsenal could be without Pablo Mari, Thomas Partey and Calum Chambers through injury, while Sead Kolasinac is a doubt due to illness and Nicolas Pepe is suspended.
