Picture this, Sunday Morning, Emirates Stadium, and two top-level teams in the Premier League fighting to see who will leave the other behind as they try to break their 2nd place draw.
Arsenal are doing good in their season, having achieved 4 wins and 1 draw so far. However, they are not as aggressive as some of the other teams on the top of the scoreboard. They are in a tie for the 2nd place but sit in the 4th spot.
Tottenham are currently riding a 4-match win streak after having a draw in their first clash, which also has them tied for the 2nd place on the scoreboard. Moreover, their effective offense has allowed them to score enough goals to lead that draw.
Sunday, September 24th at 7:00 am ET at Emirates Stadium
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Arsenal?
A four-goal home draw with Fulham remains the only blot on the Gunners’ 2023-24 notebook. They sit fourth in the rankings owing to their respectable haul of 13 points from 15 on offer in the top flight, albeit below Liverpool and upcoming foes Spurs owing to the goal difference column.
Arsenal are the only team in the top seven spots yet to hit double figures in goals this term, as Arteta adopts a slightly more conservative approach to his side’s attacking play. However, even the most optimistic of Tottenham fans will not be holding out hope of keeping the Gunners on nine goals this weekend.
Why Bet on Tottenham?
Breaking their record for the latest winning comeback in Premier League history (previously held by the Steven Bergwijn-inspired 3-2 success at Leicester City), the Spurs remain without defeat in the top flight since Ange Postecoglou took the reins, and have only performed worse than a perfect Manchester City so far this term.
Thanks to last weekend’s astonishing fightback, Tottenham have also kept up their streak of scoring at least twice in all of their Premier League games under Postecoglou so far. Not since the 1965-66 season have they sat on 13 points after five games, but few will need reminding of Antonio Conte’s acrimonious exit several months after he also led Spurs to their best start to a season last year.
Final Betting Analysis: Arsenal vs. Tottenham
Sunday’s contest will mark the 208th competitive North London derby since Arsenal and Spurs first locked horns in 1896 (during which the Gunners were a South-East London side), and Arteta’s men have triumphed in four of the last five meetings with their bitter rivals, who have gone an unlucky 13 years without winning a top-flight game on the Emirates.
Arsenal’s powers can sometimes wane when faced with a low block. However, the Gunners ran riot against a bolder PSV team and will need no second invitation to subject an aggressive, front-footed Spurs side to similar treatment. Postecoglou should not be expected to abandon his principles.
Clean sheets at home still elude the Gunners in the Premier League, but if their performance on Wednesday is anything to go by, Arteta’s men have rediscovered their clinical edge. Thus, they should end Postecoglou’s unbeaten start with their customary Emirates North London derby triumph. We’ll go for a 3-1.
Go for a victory for the locals at -145. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $68.97 for a total payout of $168.97.
