Arsenal vs Tottenham Tips

Betting Tip: Arsenal to win & both teams to score

The weekend action kicks off on Saturday lunchtime as Tottenham Hotspur take the short trip to the Emirates to take on fierce rivals Arsenal.

The hosts have been exceptional so far this campaign having emerged victorious in six of their opening seven matches and boast a 100% record on home soil. Mikel Arteta’s side have the edge in this fixture holding 79 wins compared to Spurs’ 61.

Arsenal sit top of the table coming into this round of fixtures after matching their best ever start to a new season and they will be keen to continue building momentum.

Antonio Conte’s Spurs outfit have also made a fine start to the new season and remain one of just two sides yet to taste defeat so far this season. However, their away form needs some addressing having drawn two of their three away matches and given the side playing away has failed to win any of the last 16 meetings, the visitors need to be on top form.

This should be a fascinating clash and with Arsenal’s home matches producing an average of four goals per game so far, I'll have a play on Mikel Arteta guiding his side to a derby day victory.

Betting Tip: Ben White to be carded

I’ll dip into the cards market for my second pick in this matchup. In Spurs’ three away league matches so far this term, a right-sided defender has gone into the book and it looks as though Ben White will occupy a spot on the side of the field.

It’s a derby and these two really do not like each other, but I like Arsenal to pick up a few cards here. However, Ben White already has two cards to his name this season and both of those came against London outfits Fulham and Crystal Palace.

The 24-year-old will be tasked with keeping Son Heung-Min quiet but if he plays at right-back, as he has done in each home game thus far, he could also have to deal with the pace of Ryan Sessegnon.

He’s a big price at 4/1 to go into Anthony Taylor’s book and I'll happily have another play here.
