Tottenham Hotspur welcome Arsenal to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a crunch rearranged North London derby.
Victory would see Tottenham continue to be fifth but transfer to within a level of fourth-placed Arsenal, while Mikel Arteta’s Gunners will continue to be fourth with a acquire and stop Spurs’ challenge for a prime-4 complete.
Tottenham have no new injury considerations to report following Saturday’s 1-1 attract at Liverpool as Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga (the two knee), Sergio Reguilon and Oliver Skipp (both of those groin) continue being dominated out.
Arsenal could welcome Ben White back again into competition just after he skipped their previous two matches against West Ham and Leeds respectively with a muscle mass harm.
Bukayo Saka (knock) is a question but Kieran Tierney (knee) and Thomas Partey (thigh) both of those stay absent.
- Tottenham are unbeaten in 4 of their past 6 league conferences versus Arsenal (W2, D2, L2).
- Arsenal are winless in their last 6 away conferences in opposition to Spurs (D2, L4).
- Son Heung-min has scored in every of Tottenham’s past two household matches from Arsenal (W2).
- Spurs have conceded as soon as in each and every of their last 4 residence matches (W3, L1), with Rodrigo Bentacur acquiring himself yellow carded in each individual of their latter a few house video games.
- Arsenal have failed to maintain a clear sheet in four London derbies played absent from household this year (W2, L2).
Heading to Anfield appeared a overwhelming undertaking for Tottenham on Saturday nevertheless Antonio Conte’s men manufactured a stubborn defensive exhibit, while also producing potent attacking chances to power an sudden lead but very poor hole closure cost them the win.
Arsenal in the meantime have been scientific in punishing a lacklustre Leeds defence in the opening 10 minutes which proved the difference to clinch the earn amidst a dominant attacking effectiveness, possessing thereafter wasted lots of chances by way of inaccuracy even though their defensive vulnerability stays a concern.
Now if Arsenal turn up and participate in like they did on Sunday, Tottenham would be intelligent to deploy the very same tactics but they will have to earn to retain their leading 4 hopes however I just can not see that occurring if the Gunners are at their ideal.
Prediction: Tottenham 1-1 Arsenal
