Football fans from around the world will become the witness of the 42nd North London Derby of this century. The kick off will begin at 12:00 UK local time between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs at the Emirates Stadium. Both teams will compete for another victory from this match. A battle of honor, many people said. It’s still 2 days from now and yet many have released their own premier league prediction on this game.
A Battle of Honor: Pemier League Prediction
Arsenal will fight to keep their record with this match after defeating Ludogorets in Bulgaria. It will be not an easy job to keep 7 wins and 2 draws in their record from getting worse. Leave alone their current 2nd position on the league table. With 23 points, the Gunners share the same points with Liverpool and Manchester City.
The enemy, Tottenham, is another interesting part in many Premier League prediction. The players will certainly do their best to make their 11th unbeaten match. However, the team still have a lot of work to fix many things, especially their strategy. They currently sit at the 5th position on the league table, with only 3 points apart from Arsenal.
Arsenal may have collected 15 unbeaten games, but they began it with 5 losses from their initial matches. That’s enough to keep every player awake and not to repeat the same mistake.
Many Premier League predictions put Tottenham at the favored side. With their 10 unbeaten games, the team has all resources to make everyone believe they’ll get their next 11th.
If we bring both teams to statistics, they are basically similar to each other. The Gunners won 50% of their last 10 North London, leaving Tottenham with only 20% of it. The Spur’s last victory happened around 6 years ago, with 3-2 when referee blew the final whistle.
In addition, the Spur has only managed to ransacked Arsenal only once in their last 8 matches in every competition. Some of them ended in draw. Spurs have tried to draw a victory against Arsenal during their last 2 visits. However, the enemy was not so easy to beaten. The game ended with victory for Arsenal.
Based on the statistics and current condition of both team, it is likely that Arsenal will gain victory from the upcoming match against Tottenham. The fact that the team will not have some of its best players will not change this Premier League prediction, though.
It would be better for Tottenham to find another goal than collecting victory in the near future. They have a serious problem with their goal scoring. With no victory in the last 6 matches and only 3 goals during the same time, it’s the perfect time for the management to recognize their real problem and deal with it. It’s a better priority for the time being if the club is still looking to secure their future in Premier League, which we believe they do.
