Arsenal Tottenham Hotspurs Predictions and Betting:
The Premier League is back for the weekend once again as the teams battle it out once again to get closer to final glory.
Come this Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur are set to face the challenge of Arsenal who have dug themselves a hole this season. Spurs are looking extremely confident and are the clear favorites which is in contrast to the Gunners whose campaign is in complete shatters up until now.
The significance of victory is more for the visitors than for the hosts as the former look to get back on track this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur are having one of the best runs in the premier league in club’s history so far. Barring that defeat against Everton in the opener, they have not looked back continuing their unbeaten run in the league enabling them to sit at the top of the points table.
They have achieved victories against Southampton, Manchester United, Manchester City, Burnley, West Brom and Brighton this season which speaks highly of their consistency. In their last outing, they played quality football against Chelsea where the defense did an exceptional job to force a goal less draw.
With an important fixture coming up for them, they would be looking to add 3 more points into their bucket.
On the other hand, it looks like Arsenal are heading to yet another disappointing season with inconsistent performances coming their way. They have slipped to 14th place in the table and is a wake up call for them before it’s too late for damage control.
They got off to a decent start with triumphs against Fulham and West Ham but suffered their first loss against Liverpool. They put up a good show against Sheffield United but lost the big games against the likes of Manchester City and Leicester City.
After that surprising win in Old Trafford against United, they have lost to underdog sides like Aston Villa and Wolves without a fight. At this point, the team should look to re-assess their strategy as 25% of their season is done and dusted.

Tottenham Hotspur’s attack did a great job against Chelsea in terms of creating chances but failed to convert into any goals. Their prime striker Harry Kane has been a key figure who is in red hot form currently.
The English player is having one of the best seasons with 8 goals and 11 assists in 19 appearances for the side with 74.1% pass success. He also enjoys 3.9 shots per game and provides about 1.7 key passes per game.

Lucas Moura has been of great support to the team who has 74.4% success in passes, 1.1 shots per game and has won 0.8 aerial duels per match in addition to 4 goals and an assist. Tanguy Ndombele is an attacking midfielder who is strong dribbler and provides long passes who has a goal and an assist in 14 games.
Arsenal are desperate to make a comeback after they failed to counter Wolves. They have the services of Aubameyang and Lacazette who will lead the attack.
Alexandre Lacazette is a key candidate in the lineup with 3 goals in 11 games for the team. He holds on to the ball pretty well and is an excellent dribbler. He has 77.6% pass completion rate and provides about 1.1 shots on target per game.
Aubameyang’s lack of form has been a major concern for the side with the striker struggling to find the back of the net. He has 2 goals and an assist in 10 outings for the team in the premier league. He will have to up his game and has 76.9% pass success along with 1.6 aerials won per game. Apart from this, he is involved in 1.8 shots on target and 1.1 key passes per game so far.
Willian’s lack of scoring has put salt into their wounds with the forward not creating enough chances for the side. The Brazilian has 3 assists in 12 outings along with an 87.7% pass accuracy so far.
On the other hand, the Spurs defense has been a standout this season guarding the backline exceptionally well. The Belgium defender Alderweireld is expected to sit out for four weeks after picking up an injury.
He will be replaced by Joe Rodon whose skills include blocking the ball and passing. He enjoys 86.1% success in passes and has at least 0.7 tackles per game along with 1.5 interceptions and 4.8 clears.
He will be supported by Eric Dier who is a very good blocker and can counter attack. He has 87.4% success while passing and is great in aerial duels winning 2.9 per match along with 4.1 clears and 0.9 interceptions per game.
Reguilon and Aurier who usually play the left and the right center back will have to make sure that they support the other two by clearing getting rid of the balls and not letting the opposition get to the penalty box.
The Arsenal backline has the likes of Bellerin, Rob Holding, Gabriel Magalhaes who were devastated after conceding two goals against Wolves.
Rob Holding needs to do a better job as the center-back who has 85.1% pass success. He also enjoys 1.5 tackles, 0.9 interceptions and 3.9 clears per game. Hector Bellerin of Spain has 84.8% pass completion success and dribbles very well. He intercepts well with an average of 1.4 per game and 1.7 clears that makes it tough for the opponent.
