Arsenal v Spurs betting tips:
Another North London derby comes around with plenty at stake once again. Contrasting fortunes in Europe for both these sides as Arsenal got soundly beaten by Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. They just couldn't cope with the attacking nous of the German giants and Wenger's decision to start Debuchy at right back looked a poor one.
Arsenal might be touted for Premier League success by many, but they're going to have to defend better than that if they are to hold any hope.
In the Europa League on Thursday night, Spurs left it late, but eventually overcame Belgian side Anderlecht by 2 goals to 1. Harry Kane was on the scoresheet yet again and the forward seems to have finally found his feet and form in front of goal and he will be a dangerous prospect for Arsenal's back 4.
Mauricio Pocchettino's side are currently on a ten match unbeaten run, they haven't been defeated since the opening day of the season when they were unlucky to lose 1-0 to Manchester United. They are going about their business quietly but effectively and with plenty of oppportunity to shape his squad, Pocchettino is finally showing what he can do.
It will difficult for them here though as Arsenal are unbeaten in 35 of their last 38 home games and despite being bruised by the experience of Wednesday night, they will want to show that they are top dogs in North London
A crippling injury list once again hinders the home side as Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshire are all still missing. Laurent Koscielny is a doubt and that would be a big loss, particularly against the lively Eriksen and Kane.
I think this one will be tight, Spurs will not want to lose their unbeaten run whilst Arsenal will want to bounce back immediately and in front of their home crowd will be wary of making mistakes.
Spurs are a big price to win this one, but they are also a decent price on the handicap. The 5/4 giving them a goal start seems like a sensible shout.
The first of my Arsenal v Spurs betting tips is for Spurs (+1) on the Handicap – It can be backed at 5/4 with Bet365
Arsenal have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 4 Premier League games an were beginning to look like turning a corner defensively. But they conceded against Everton and Leicester and it seems that teams with pace give them problems and I think Spurs will definitely find a way through. They might be weary after their Thursday night exertions, but they have a diminishing injury list and may benefit from making a few changes in the second half. With Son back, but probably unable to command a starting position, they have options from the bench if they need to grab a goal.
The second of my Arsenal v Spurs betting tips is for Both Teams to Score? Yes. It can be backed at 8/13 with Betfred
The Dane Christian Eriksen is a free kick specialist and there may be opportunities around the edge of the box and if Arsenal give away silly free kicks in dangerous areas and he has a sumptuous delivery. He could punish a defence who are still smarting from midweek.
The third of my Arsenal v Spurs betting tips is for Christian Eriksen to score anytime. He can be backed at 4/1 with Betfred
