It's the North London Derby, and football expert Ryan Elliott has a 7/4 tip for Sunday's big game.
Something’s rotten at Tottenham Hotspur, and I really don’t like the way the club’s going. The performance levels have dropped to an alarming low, the atmosphere is toxic and you’d be right in thinking Jose Mourinho is the primary cause of this.
The Portuguese, a legendary manager and nothing less, has seen the Premier League pass him by, and unfortunately I can only see one ending for his time at Spurs: an acrimonious sacking.
Things are looking much rosier for Arsenal. Since their Brighton defeat, they’ve won four and drawn one of their last five games, keeping a clean sheet in three of their last four in the league.
Considering Spurs were played off the park by Bournemouth, without so much as registering a shot on target, I just can’t see them drastically improving enough to beat Arsenal.
With fans in the ground, I could see them potentially raising their game, but right now they’re simply not very good, and this seems like the perfect time to play Spurs.
7/4 looks a very generous price for Arsenal—who have seemingly found a pretty effective blend of goalscoring and solidity—to take this weekend’s North London Derby.
