Tottenham vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs are on a major mission this season. After years of near-misses, they are determined to finally bring a trophy to their cabinet. And right at the forefront of the crusade is Jose Mourinho.
As of now, keeping true to Mou’s track record of ‘great second seasons at any club’, the team is placed at the top of the table, and have conceded the fewest number of goals so far.
In fact, they remain the only squad to yet touch the double figures in terms of conceded goals. At the same time, they have also been outscored only by Liverpool and Chelsea, and that too by a single goal.
This weekend, they are pitted against arch-rivals and the struggling Gunners. This is a huge opportunity for Jose and his boys to establish their supremacy over their derby rivals, who have been a thorn in their hearts for the last several years.
Considering the impressive form of Spurs, their recent h2h superiority, and the struggles of Mikel Arteta’s men – expect Tottenham to be the better team on the pitch this Sunday.
Tottenham vs Arsenal: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Mourinho’s men recorded a 2-1 win at home the last time these two locked horns. The game had taken place just three months back.
- The last the Gunners won against this rival was back in 2018.
- Since 2014, they had registered a total of just two league wins.
- At home, Jose’s men had recorded eight of the former ten wins.
- The Spurs have lost just a single PL encounter at home since 2007, against this opponent.
Tottenham vs Arsenal: Prediction
Mou’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day on the road, by Chelsea. In the meantime, Arteta’s men lost 1-2 at home against Wolves.
Going on, Spurs were unbeaten in 17 of their preceding 18 overall games, and impressively 14 of these were wins. And the sole loss during this stretch had come in the Europa League.
At home, they are on a four-match winning run, and had scored a total of 23 goals from their last seven games here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their preceding four overall matches, and they remained so in four of their former seven games on the road.
On top of all that, Jose’s men also have a good h2h record at home over the past several years, and have been the better team in overall h2h meetings in recent years as well.
As such, expect Tottenham to keep hold of their top-most spot, and thoroughly dominate Arsenal this Sunday.
