This weekend’s Premier League schedule includes a new iteration of the North London derby as Mikel Arteta’s impressive Arsenal team squares off against Tottenham Hotspur in a pivotal match on Sunday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!
Arsenal is currently in first place in the Premier League standings and is having a fantastic year so far. The Gunners easily defeated Oxford United by a score of 3-0 in their previous match, and they’ll try to repeat that performance this weekend.
On the other hand, Tottenham Hotspur has struggled this season and is currently in fifth place in the league table. This week, the home team narrowly defeated Portsmouth 1-0 and will be optimistic going into this match.
With 206 games played between the two teams, Arsenal has a strong record against Tottenham Hotspur, winning 85 of those games to Tottenham Hotspur’s 67.
In their last eight home Premier League games against Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur is unbeaten, and they have won their last three similar games in the league.
Arsenal, who are still considered the favourites to win the Premier League, have so far exceeded expectations this season. In this match, players like Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, who have improved this year, will be crucial.
