Tottenham vs Arsenal – Premier League: A London derby with a lot of interest, between Tottenham and Arsenal
Two teams that are in line to access the Champions League through their position on the Premier League.
For the Spurs, who are only 1 point behind Chelsea, that scenario is much more realistic, even considering that the Blues seem to be breaking down, while for the Gunners,
who are 5 points away from the 4th place, the moves they’ve made on the transfer window really tell us a lot about their need to look for solutions in order not to fail to reach that objective, for the 2nd consecutive season.
Tottenham has been giving misleading signs contradictory signs over the course of the past couple of weeks, whether drawing with Southampton and Newport, whether beating Manchester United or being able to share points with Liverpool.
Spurs’ team had, midweek, an extra weight on their schedule, by having to solve the FA Cup tie, against Newport, but that shouldn’t have an impact in this much more important match.
Arsenal has made some moves during this winter transfer window, in order not to lose the race to their main contenders.
If this season they are at risk of failing to ensure, for the 2nd consecutive time, to the Champions League, the truth is that they needed to make those moves upon the possibility of losing Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Ozil.
With Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang and Ozil, the team now presents a much stronger and more creative attacking front.
Tottenham vs Arsenal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It will be with that core that the “new” Arsenal will present itself against the Spurs, after having battered Everton by 5-1.
The idea of confidence on the Gunners might be essential to transform a match where the home side, is still, favourite to win, despite the recent moves that have given Arsenal a different aura.
