Tottenham vs Arsenal Prediction: Premier League Match on 06.12.2020
The North London Derby returns this weekend as rivals Tottenham and Arsenal clash at the stunning Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The home team have emerged as contenders for the Premier League title this season and are pushing Liverpool hard in the early exchanges. Things aren’t as good across the city with Arsenal struggling in midtable following a miserable run of form.
These sides are certainly no strangers to meeting in competitive action, but Arsenal dominate the head-to-head charts having won 77 times against the 59 of Spurs with 51 games ending in a draw. The most recent encounter at this venue was a 2-1 win for the home team, achieved thanks to goals from Heung-Min Son and Toby Alderweireld after Alexandre Lacazaette broke the deadlock.
Spurs defence stands tall
Tottenham enter game 11 of the season sitting top of the Premier League with 21 points on the board. The hosts have claimed six wins already, drawing three and losing just once with 21 goals scored and nine conceded. They are level on points with last season’s champions Liverpool and two better than Chelsea in third. A top-four finish and return to Champions League football is the least fans expect of Jose Mourinho’s men in this campaign.
Spurs are on an unbeaten run but were held to a draw by Chelsea last weekend at Stamford Bridge. That match ended goalless on Jose’s return to the Bridge, but it was a competitive and exciting 90 minutes of play, Timo Werner seeing a goal ruled out for offside in the main talking point of the day. That result means Spurs have now kept a clean sheet in each of their last three league starts, something that will please Mourinho.
Arteta is under pressure
Arsenal fans had hoped manager Mikel Arteta could return the glory days to the club, but things haven’t gone according to play in the opening weeks. The Gunners are down in 14th place in the Premier League after 10 games, having won four, drawn one, and lost five, scoring 10 goals but conceded a dozen. They have scored less than Fulham who are on the fringes of the relegation zone and that’s something that has supporters fearing for the future.
Arsenal have taken just one of the last nine points available to them and were beaten last time out, losing 2-1 at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Neto and Podence hit the net in the opening half to put Wolves ahead and they held on despite a response from Gabriel. That result heaped more pressure on Arteta who must know the results are unacceptable and time is running out to turn things around.
Tottenham vs Arsenal prediction
Tottenham are in fine form and playing at home gives them a great chance to add another win to their tally. They are defending well and scoring for fun. The same can’t be said for Arsenal who are struggling for points and failing to take their chances.
Premier League odds
Tottenham are 1.94 to win with Arsenal 3.9 and the draw 3.54.
