Tottenham vs Arsenal Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match in Premier League, in the big city derby, Tottenham Hotspur host Arsenal at White Hart Lane. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Tottenham vs Arsenal.
Arsenal stand at the 3rd position with 6 points less than Leicester and three points less than Spurs, so in the case of win they can take the second position for the city rivals. Home side unexpectedly lost in the previous round against Swansea 1-2 and lost important points, so they have to go for a win in this game in order to stay in race for the title. It was their 3rd lost match in a row in all competitions and 4th match in which they failed to win. Maybe the match against Tottenham doesn’t come in the right moment for Arsenal, but they have to improve their performance if they want the title. This could be the last chance for visitors to stay in a race for the title. In the last four Premier League matches against Spurs at White Hart Lane, Arsenal lost three times and managed to win only once, but interesting fact is that they scored in all those matches.
Tottenham vs Arsenal injuries and suspensions
Home side have no problem with injured and suspended players. Good news for side is that Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli are both back in squad and will be fit for this game. Big blow for visitors is the absence of their first goalkeeper Petr Cech, who will be out up to four weeks due to injury. Another important player in defence, Laurent Koscielny, is also injured.
