By Dean Carr

Betting Tips and Predictions

Out of the two sides, Tottenham look the most complete outfit at this moment in time and it is surprising to see them ranked as the outsiders to win here. Despite Arsenal being the home side, I’m expecting Mauricio Pochettino’s men to continue their excellent start to the season and pick up a result here.

Arsenal Preview

Arsene Wenger may well look back on last weekend’s defeat to Manchester City with real regret after a questionable team selection from the Frenchman resulted in his side losing 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium. Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero both struck to give Pep Guardiola’s men a 2-0 lead, though Alexandre Lacazette - who was again left out of the starting XI by Wenger - scored within nine minutes of his introduction from the bench to pull the Gunners back into contention. Gabriel Jesus produced the dagger blow for City as the linesman failed to spot an offside in the buildup to the goal; something which Wenger was quick to highlight after the match. As a result, the Gunners dropped to 6th in the Premier League table, finding themselves three points behind Chelsea in 4th and a most-likely unassailable twelve points off leaders Manchester City. Early evidence suggests this side is still missing key ingredients to really establish themselves as serious title contenders, namely in their resilience and mental toughness away from from. The Gunners have won just one of their six away matches in the Premier League this season, taking just four points from a possible 18 in doing so. Alternatively, they have won five from five at the Emirates so far, though they are yet to face a side in the top seven at home so far.

Arsenal Team News

Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring), Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla (both achilles) look set to miss out. Rob Holding and Olivier Giroud will face tests on their respective thigh problems, while David Ospina, Calum Chambers and Danny Welbeck all have groin issues.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Wembley wins often haven’t been pretty for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League and that trend continued in their previous home win, edging their way past Crystal Palace with a 1-0 victory before the international break. Third-choice keeper Paulo Gazzaniga was called into the squad following injuries to Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm and had to be at his best to deny Palace early on, with Wilfried Zaha looking a real threat for the visitors. Spurs struggled to create clear-cut chances, but they came through midway through the second half as Heung-Min Son excellently beat Julian Speroni with a curving shot with the aid of the inside of the post. Prior to their 1-0 loss away to Manchester United, Spurs had gone seven unbeaten in the Premier League, with their current league form reading one defeat from nine games. That defeat at Old Trafford is also their only away loss of the season so far, with the team winning six in a row before that stretching back to the end of last season. Talk of a power shift in north London has been floated around in recent times, though they are still waiting for a statement victory against the Gunners in their own back yard. Spurs are unbeaten in their last six Premier League meetings with Arsenal - winning two and drawing four - but have drawn 1-1 in their last three visits to the Emirates Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News

Hugo Lloris (hip), Jan Vertonghen, Harry Winks (both ankle), Dele Alli (hamstring) and Harry Kane (knee) are all expected to be fit, but Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) is a major doubt. Victor Wanyama (knee) and Erik Lamela (hip) are back in training.
