Arsenal v Spurs: Betting Preview
Arsenal host London rivals Spurs at the Emirates Stadium late Sunday afternoon, in the first North London derby of the new 2019/20 Premier League season.
In betting terms, this clash is set to be one of the most anticipated fixtures of the season so far, and without a doubt, will be an extremely close match to call.
You’ll find bookmakers offer Arsenal as favourites to win, partly because of home advantage, but also due to the fact that they have looked way more convincing in their first 3 matches.
Arsenal may have had more success in the Premier League era, but the past few seasons have seen a huge reversal, with Spurs finishing above the Gunners in the table since 2016/17.
The last time these tow sides met in the Premier League the match ended in a 1-1 stalemate, however Arsenal actually won 2 of the previous 3 fixtures prior to that draw.
While Spurs had a 2-0 win against Arsenal in the League Cup last season, they've only managed to win 2 of the last 5 Premier League fixtures against their North London counterparts.
This is going to be a close one to call, and with both sides needing a full 3 points from Sundays North London derby, they both have a lot more to play for than just a victory over a rival.
In the lead up to Arsenal v Spurs, we've taken a look at both team’s recent performances, and also any player injuries that could affect either managers preparations for the game.
Arsenal: Team News
Although Arsenal have had an impressive start to their 2019/20 Premier League season, with 2 wins under their belt, they suffered a crushing 3-1 loss to Liverpool at the weekend.
Unai Emery's Arsenal side were dreading the trip to Merseyside, with the defeat meaning that Liverpool remain the only team to have won every match so far this season.
The Gunners look stronger when they're attacking, but their defence still lets them down despite signing a couple of defenders late on in the transfer window.
If they can reduce the amount of opportunities they gift their opponents, they'll definitely be in with a chance of taking another 3 points of their fierce rivals.
British Bookmakers expect Arsenal to win this latest derby, but Spurs can’t be underestimated, as they really need to kick off their season after 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss.
Luckily Emery doesn’t have any new injuries to deal with, and although they'll still be without Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney, Mesut Ozil should be back in contention.
Looking at the last 5 fixtures that Arsenal have played in all competitions, they've won 2, drawn 1, and lost 2 scoring a total of 6 goals (1.2 goals per game) and conceding a total of 7 goals.

Spurs: Team News
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently sitting in 7th place after an extremely disappointing start to their Premier League campaign has seen them only manage to win once.
After a 3-1 win over Aston Villa, and then barely managing to hold Man City to a draw, Spurs then suffered a staggering 1-0 loss at home to Newcastle at the weekend.
Spurs have had a fantastic few seasons, but they really need to up their game and start taking 3 points from their fixtures if they want to mount a title challenge this season.
Son Heung-min returned from suspension in time for the Newcastle match, but failed to make an impression, while Lucas Moura and Harry Kane both missed late chances.
Players of their calibre really need to be delivering much better performances, especially against teams lower in the league that shouldn’t be beating them.
Pochettino has a few injury concerns and Juan Foyth, Ryan Sessegnon, Tanguy Ndombele and Kyle Walker-Peters are all expected to miss the derby, however Alli is expected to be fit.
Spurs have the capability to beat Arsenal, but Pochettino’s men will really need to improve on their 3 performances so far this season if they are to take all 3 points from the match.
Spurs' record over their last 5 matches in all competitions is won 1, drawn 2 and lost 2. They've scored more goals than Arsenal, 7 in total (1.4 per game,) but conceded the same (7).

There have been 54 Arsenal v Spurs matches in the Premier League era, with Arsenal again having the upper hand with 20 victories compared to just 12 wins for Spurs.
The last 6 Premier League fixtures involving both of these teams have resulted in 2 wins for Arsenal, 2 wins for Spurs and 2 of the matches ending in score draws.
The last Premier League match between both of these two sides occurred on the 2nd of March earlier this year in 2019 with the match ending in a 1-1 draw.
The match was played at Wembley Stadium in front of a crowd of 81,332 with Harry Kane scoring a penalty in the 74th minute to cancel out Aaron Ramsey's goal on 16 minutes.
The last match where Arsenal played Spurs at home at the Emirates Stadium was when they met in the Premier League on the 2nd of December in 2018 with Arsenal winning 4-2.
A double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and further goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira did the damage despite Spurs scoring twice via Eric Dier and Harry Kane.
The biggest win that Arsenal have had over Spurs in the Premier League occurred on the 17th of November back in 2012 when they won 5-2 at home at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal had 5 different goal scorers in the match with Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott all scoring against their fiercest rivals.
The highest margin that Spurs have ever beaten Arsenal by was the 5-1 win at White Hart Lane on the 22nd of January in 2008 when they met in the 2nd leg of a League Cup Semi-final.
Jenas opened the scoring for Spurs in the 3rd minute, followed by an own goal by Nicklas Bendtner before goals from Keane, Lennon and Malbranque sealed the win for Spurs.
Arsenal v Spurs - 02/12/2018
Along with the game on Merseyside, the other Derby that punters will be betting on this Sunday is the match kicking-off at 14:05pm at The Emirates when Arsenal take on arch-rivals Spurs.
We've got British Bookmakers best Arsenal v Spurs odds below, a preview of the match, and the betting offers and price boosts to claim if you're having a bet on the North London Derby.
Arsenal host Spurs this Sunday in the North London Derby, and while bookmakers offer Arsenal as slight favourites, betting odds are pretty close and this one could go either way.
Arsenal v Spurs is without a doubt one of the biggest rivalries in the Premier League, and while the Gunners have historically secured more victories, Spurs aren't an easy team to beat at the moment and it's set to be one of the most exciting Premier League fixtures in December!
Spurs have managed to finish ahead of Arsenal in the table in the past 2 Premier League seasons, and Pochettino comes into Sunday’s match 3 points clear of Unai Emery’s side.
While bookmakers see the home side as favourites, Spurs have a much better track record in the last 6 clashes against Arsenal, walking away with 2 wins compared to 1 win for Arsenal.
It's worth pointing out that the other 3 fixtures all ended in score draws which is something to consider for those that are interested in predicting score draws.
Both sides have played European fixtures ahead of the Derby, with Spurs facing a Champions League tie against Inter Milan, and Arsenal taking on Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League.
In the lead up to this highly anticipated North London Derby, we've taken a look at the form of both sides, and the player injuries that managers have to deal with ahead of Arsenal v Spurs.
Arsenal secured a much needed win against Bournemouth in their last Premier League outing, and having only drawn their previous 3 fixtures, the 2-1 victory at The Vitality Stadium will have taken some of the pressure off Emery’s men before the Arsenal v Spurs match.
Arsenal may be on a 17 match unbeaten run, but they come into the Derby in 5th place with 27 points, and with only 3 points between themselves and Spurs, a victory on Sunday would see them leapfrog above their fiercest rivals and take a coveted top 4 spot.
The big question ahead of the match is whether Emery will continue to use a 3-4-3 formation, and if he does, will this mean Mesut Ozil missing another match?
This formation worked well against Bournemouth, with the 3 points allowing them to stay close to Spurs, Chelsea and Liverpool in the table, but it risks ruling one of their top players out.
A win against Spurs would give an additional boost to their Premier League campaign, but unfortunately Emery may have to contend with Welbeck, Monreal, Mavropanos and Koscielny being ruled out of the match due to injury.
Spurs come into the North London Derby sitting in 3rd place and just 5 points behind league leaders Man City, with Pochettino’s side winning their last 3 Premier League fixtures.
A fantastic 3-1 victory against their other London rivals at the weekend delivered Chelsea’s first loss of the Premier League season, and gave a further boost to Spurs' confidence.
Spurs have been playing some great football, winning their last 5 matches in all competitions, and are in a strong position in the Premier League with 30 points out of the 13 fixtures so far.
Despite some criticism the Lilywhites for an unimpressive playing style this season, they've actually had their best start to a Premier League campaign since 2011-12.
Pochettino also has a few injury concerns in his squad ahead of Arsenal v Spurs, with Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez and Mousa Dembele all set to miss this clash.
Spurs have plenty of work to do if they're to achieve the same level of attacking style that we saw from them last season but the victory over Chelsea proves they're still capable.
This is an important part of the season for Spurs, facing both of their major London rivals while also having a crucial Champions League midweek fixture to contend with.
Even though bookmakers see Arsenal as favourites, there's no reason why Spurs can't win if they repeat the type of performance we saw from them against Chelsea last weekend.
Arsenal v Spurs - 18/11/2017
Our Premier League match to bet on this week is Saturday's North London derby between Arsenal and Spurs which kicks-off at 12:30pm at The Emirates.
As well as the Arsenal v Spurs preview, we've also compiled a list of British Bookmakers latest betting offers and price boosts on the match.
Arsène Wenger’s Arsenal host Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs at The Emirates this Saturday, in the first North London derby of the 2017/18 Premier League season.
With some tough fixtures coming up for both teams in December, it's a key game and both sides will be determined to beat their fiercest rivals and secure the 3 points.
Pochettino’s Spurs have had a strong season so far, and come into the Derby sitting in 3rd place, 4 points clear of 6th placed Arsenal.
Although Spurs haven’t lost to Arsenal in the Premier League since March 2014, bookmakers offer Arsenal as the favourites to win Saturday’s game.
Looking at the stats for this match, 4 of the last Premier League games between Arsenal and Spurs have ended in draws, and so Saturday’s game could easily end the same way.
Arsenal haven’t been playing to the best of their ability, while Spurs have a number of key players potentially missing, and it will likely be tough game for either team to win.
You can watch Arsenal v Spurs live on Sky Sports at 12:30pm on Saturday November 18th.
If you’re betting that Arsenal will beat Spurs and win the North London derby, William Hill offers the best odds at 6/4 as well as a great signup offer for new customers.
Arsenal haven’t had the best start to the season, having won just 6 of their 11 games to date.
In saying that, their form sees to be improving, and they’ve won 2 of their last 3 Premier League games, although they spectacularly lost to Man City in their last outing.
With home advantage, it’s understandable that bookmakers offer them as favourites.
But beating Spurs won’t be an easy task, and Arsenal really need a win to boost their position in the table, especially as they face Man Utd and Liverpool next month.
Luckily Arsenal don’t have as many injuries as Spurs!
Welbeck will be back, while Ospina and Mustafi are also expected to be fit for the Derby. Olivier Giroud is still a major doubt following a thigh injury while playing for France.
If you’re betting on Spurs coming away from The Emirates with all 3 points, Bet Victor offers best odds at 19/10 as well as a great deal for all new signups.
In contrast to Arsenal, Spurs have had a strong start to their 2017/18 season, qualifying for the Champions League last-16, and holding on to their top 4 spot.
They come into Saturday’s North London derby 8 points shy of leaders Man City, and in desperate need of a win to help close that gap.
Even though they haven’t lost to Arsenal since 2014, bookmakers offer them as the underdogs for this clash, but Pochettino will be focused on beating their North London rivals.
Pochettino has a raft of injury worries to contend with and this could be the key factor in how Spurs perform against their arch rivals Arsenal.
Goalkeepers Lloris and Vorm will both miss the game, while Alderweireld and Vertonghen are also injured. Dele Alli, Kane and Winks are all expected to be fit.
Arsenal v Spurs - 06/11/2016
Arsenal host London rivals Spurs at The Emirates Stadium this Sunday at midday, in the first North London derby of the 2016/17 Premier League season.
With Arsenal 2nd in the table and Spurs 5th and unbeaten, it will be a great fixture to bet on with bookmakers offering plenty of price boosts and betting offers on the game.
Online bookmakers offer Arsenal as firm favourites to win on Sunday, and given their unbeaten run in all competitions, The Gunners should secure a win against Spurs.
Alongside the rivalry that this derby ignites, it’s a crucial game for both sides.
The top 3 teams are all sitting on the same points and a win for Arsène Wenger’s side could see them steal top spot if Man City and Liverpool both fail to win.
Spurs are just 3 points behind the top 3 teams, and a win would see them draw equal with Arsenal and end a run of 6 games in all competitions without a win.
Arsenal vs Spurs is live on Sky Sports 1 at 12:00 on Sunday the 6th of November.
If you’re betting on Arsenal winning the North London derby, Betfred offers best odds at 19/20.
Arsenal are having a fantastic season, having not lost since the opening day of the season, and will be confident of beating Spurs on Sunday.
Although this has always been a tough fixture, Arsenal have had a much better run at home, winning on 40 occasions compared to Spurs 18 wins at The Emirates.
Although the last two corresponding fixtures ended in draws, Arsenal look the stronger team, and it’s no surprise that bookmakers offer such short odds on them winning.
Wegner is missing a number of players, most of whom aren’t expected back before the New Year with Perez, Cazorla, Akporn, Mertesacker and Welbeck all been ruled out.
Luckily Cazorla, Walcott, Bellerin and Monreal are all expected back in the line-up after they missed Tuesday's win over Ludogorets in the Champions League.
If you’re betting on Spurs getting one over on their rivals, Bet365 offers best odds at 10/3.
Spurs are currently sitting in 5th place in the Premier League, just 3 points behind Arsenal, and a win would see them equal the Gunners points tally.
Mauricio Pochettino's side hasn’t lost a Premier League this season, however they’ve only managed to secure 5 wins, and after 3 successive draws they really need a win.
Spurs have had a run of bad luck when it coms to injured players, with Dembele the latest casualty after he twisted his ankle in Wednesday’s game against Bayer Leverkusen.
Spurs could really do with Harry Kane and Lamela returning to the squad in time for the Arsenal clash, but they are both still in doubt due to injury.
Unfortunately the signing of last season Toby Alderweireld has also been ruled out, while Sissoko will be missing for the final match of his three game suspension.
This is going to be a very challenging game for Spurs with so many key players missing, but if they regain the form they had last season, they might just be able to sneak it.
