Arsenal and Tottenham
The North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur is one of the best in English football and on Sunday we will see these two teams facing each other again. Let’s preview this exciting clash at the Emirates Stadium in our English Premier League predictions for today.
Arsenal started the season on a high note, winning their first two games in the league, but last week the Gunners suffered a first defeat. Unai Emery’s team faced Liverpool at the Anfield, but left the pitch defeated after a 1-3 loss. A brace from Mohamed Salah and goal from Joel Matip made Liverpool victorious, while the Uruguyan international Lucas Torreira scored Arsenal’s only goal in the game.
Just one week later Arsenal are having a great chance to get back on their feet, because winning against Tottenham would raise the team’s confidence once again. This is Unai Emery’s second season at the Emirates, so the board and the fans are having higher expectations now. If Emery doesn’t deliver, his future would be uncertain.
In the same time Tottenham Hotspur also suffered their first loss in the league a week ago. Spurs hosted the struggling Newcastle United and everyone expected an easy win for the Champions League finalists. Something went very wrong for Tottenham, though, because the Magpies clinched the win with a winning goal from Joelinton. Right now Spurs are already five points behind the leader Liverpool, so they can’t afford losing any points at the moment.
Mauricio Pochettino’s biggest problem before the derby is the injury of the summer signing Tanguy NDombele. The French midfielder was adapting pretty well to his new team, but he won’t be avaliable for the derby on Sunday.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium. Both teams are eager to record a win, especially after losing their last matches.
