The North London Derby is always one of the most entertaining games of the season, with the 2 teams having so much passion when playing against each other.

Injuries and Suspensions:

The Gunners are lucky to have only one player out, which is Jurrien Timber after he tore his ACL at the start of the season. However, the Dutch defender is looking better as the days go by, having scored for the Arsenal U21 team recently.

Spurs, on the other hand, are riddled with injuries, having the following players out – Destiny Udogie, Pedro Porro and Ryan Sessegnon are all out with thigh injuries, Fraser Forster with an ankle problem, and Richarlison and Manor Solomon with knee injuries.

Player to Watch Out For: Son Heung-min

Tottenham Hotspur’s very own Son Heung-min is a force to be reckoned with. With 24 G/A in 29 Premier League games this season (according to Transfermarkt), he is the player who will be the most worrisome for the Gunners defense.

David Raya (GK); Ben White (RB), William Saliba (CB), Gabriel (CB), Takehiro Tomiyasu (LB); Martin Ødegaard (CM), Declan Rice (CDM), Jorginho (CM); Gabriel Martinelli (LW), Kai Havertz (ST), Bukayo Saka (RW).

Predicted Score:

Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham

We predict Arsenal to come out on top in this game. After the Gunners’ thrashing of Chelsea, and Spurs losing 4-0 to Newcastle United, it is unlikely that Tottenham will be able to to pull off an upset. Mikel Arteta’s men will come out on top, with goals from Havertz and Saka to be expected.
