Arsenal vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 September 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Unai Emery’s Arsenal have stumbled for the first time in the new campaign as they were taken down by Liverpool on the road with a 3-1 scoreline. Despite handing newly added recruit Nicolas Pepe his first start, the Gunners failed to make much of an impact in the final third and registered no more than nine attempts at goal, six of which were not even on target.
Tottenham, on the other hand, have been heading down south since their opening day victory, and currently winless in their last two games in a row. The squad were handed a shock defeat at the hands of Newcastle at home, while on the road, they managed not more than a draw against Manchester City.
Nevertheless, the North London derby is certainly one of the feistiest rivalries that fans of both contingents look forward to with the same vigor, as the clash between two of the top sides in England has seldom disappointed.
It is not just a matter of securing the three points this weekend for the supporters, as the bragging rights, till the two teams meet next, is also up for grabs.
Arsenal vs Tottenham Head to head (h2h)
- Both teams have got their names on the scoresheet twice in their last three games.

- Tottenham have registered a win just once in their last ten visits to this venue.
Arsenal vs Tottenham Prediction
The Gunners have won their only home game so far, and have admitted defeat just once in their last fifteen Premier League fixtures here. Additionally, Spurs have not fared well in their previous visits to the Emirates Stadium and have managed to taste success no more than twice in their last twenty trips to this turf.
However, the away side have been sizing up to be a front runner in their recent matches, and even went within touching distance of the Champions League in the previous season. Furthermore, it needs saying that the visitors held the reigning champions to a draw in their most recent outing.
Although a win against their arch-rivals, that too in their own backyard, seems to be a formidable task, there is a slight possibility that they might be able to force Arsenal to share the spoils as half of their last six meetings here have seen the two teams to be inseparable at the end of the ninety minutes.
Both the sides have scored nine goals between them from their three games so far, four of which came from their most recent matchups. Given that there was no shortage of goals when they last met in the league either, expect both the teams to rack up the goals tally in this one as a high scoring clash is definitely in the reckoning.
