Tottenham v Arsenal Prediction - Preview

Tottenham Hotspur F.C.

Tottenham Hotspur are currently seated sixth in the EPL table. Their last league game on New Year’s Day saw them beat Watford 0-1 at Vicarage Road. When the game looked headed to a draw, Son Heung-Min’s free-kick found Davinson Sanchez, who fired home and got three points at the last minute. Antonio Conte’s side had mixed fortunes since that match. Spurs progressed in the FA Cup with a 3-1 rout of Morecambe, thanks to second half goals by Harry Winks, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane. However, Chelsea were able to keep two clean sheets against them in the two-legged EFL Cup semi-final, with the Lilywhites bowing to the Blues 0-3 on aggregate. 

  • Tottenham are unbeaten in all 8 of their EPL matches under Antonio Conte, the best unbeaten start for a Spurs manager in their league history (W5 D3). The last manager whose 1st league defeat with Spurs came in a north London derby was Ossie Ardiles, who fell to a 1-0 home loss to Arsenal in August 1993.
  • Spurs are unbeaten in their last seven home league matches against Arsenal (W5 D2), their longest such run against their north London rivals since a run of 9 between 1960 and 1968.

Arsenal F.C.

Arsenal are now seated fifth in the table, two points clear of Tottenham. Their last league match saw them lose a heartbreaker to Manchester City (1-2). On 31 minutes, Bukayo Saka broke the deadlock by slotting in Kieran Tierney’s pass. However, the Citizens had gone back on terms in the 57th minute when Riyad Mahrez converted a penalty after Bernardo Silva was taken down by Granit Xhaka. Gabriel Magalhaes then got a second booking shortly after, reducing the gunners to 10 men. This proved costly as Rodri was able to net in during stoppage time and secure the win. Mikel Arteta’s side have yet to win in any competition in 2022. The Gunners were also knocked out of the FA Cup on a 0-1 upset by Nottingham Forest. A few days later, a 10-man Arsenal squad held Liverpool to a scoreless draw in their EFL Cup semi-final’s 1st leg.

  • Following their 3-1 victory at Emirates in September, Arsenal are looking to complete their 1st league double over Tottenham since the 2013/14 campaign.
  • Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka were both on the scoresheet for Arsenal in this season’s reverse fixture. The last Englishman to score for the Gunners in both home and away fixtures against Spurs in a single season was Ian Wright in 1993/94.

Tottenham v Arsenal Prediction - Final Thoughts

With both sides showing inconsistency in their past few games, this North London derby is up for grabs. However, we do think Tottenham have the slight edge because of home advantage and more options all around. AAdd to that Arsenal missing players due to AFCON duty, and you could expect a thrilling rivalry match, with Spurs coming out the victor.  Let’s take a look at our predictions.
