Arsenal v Spurs Tips: Who’s taking derby day glory?

| 18.12.2018

Rivalries are renewed at the Emirates Stadium tonight as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur face off for the second time this month.

The Gunners won 4-2 in a fiery fixture at the start of December but Spurs have been the dominant force in North London recently.

So will Arsenal bag a second-successive win over their arch rivals or can Spurs get sweet revenge?

Match Odds

Arsenal haven’t lost to Spurs on home turf since 2010. The Gunners are 6/4 to bag a third-straight win at the Emirates.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are coming off the back of three league wins and are 8/5 to score the victory inside 90 minutes.

A draw which would send the game straight to pens starts at 5/2.

Talking Tactics

Pochettino will be without a clutch of players including Eric Dier, Juan Foyth and Mousa Dembele.

Paulo Gazzaniga could get the nod in goal. Oliver Skipp made his first professional start in the win over Burnley. He could retain his place in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Kyle Walker-Peters may come in for Kieran Trippier at right-back, but Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen could start against their bitter rivals.

Unai Emery will want a response following Arsenal’s first loss in 22 games in all competitions against Southampton last weekend.

There could be major changes in defence, but Sokratis looks set to return after suspension.

Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey could come in from the start after their big impact on the derby win earlier in the month.

Goalscorer odds

Kane to bag his seventh goal in his last eight games against the Gunners is at Evens anytime.

He’s 3/1 to score 2 or more goals.

Lucas Moura is 21/10 to notch at any point in the game.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to get his third goal in a month against Spurs is 11/8.

Lucas Torreira bagged the final goal in the 4-2 win. He’s 18/1 to score the last goal of the game again.
