Arsenal vs Tottenham should be the most interesting Sunday Football match, closing 4th round of Premier League, which will be held at Emirates Stadium, in London. North London derby is always very exciting to watch and follow, as both teams fighting till the end and defending the honour of their club. Each time, the match between these rivals is very unpredictable, as both the players and the coaches find new ways to play better and stronger. Moreover, the desire to win the derby is always at the top of everything.

During the last 5 games in different competitions, teams have the same losing and winning amount, divided by two. Since the 2011th year, at Emirates Stadium Tottenham won only once at EFL Cup quarter-final last year and stopped serie of failures on the opponent’s stadium. In the Premier League last season, Arsenal won against Tottenham at Emirates and took out a draw on the road. Although last year Spurs showed better shape, the Gunners were stronger in the derby. Please read our thought about this always promising game between Arsenal vs Tottenham in Premier League, here below.

Arsenal

During present Premier League season, Arsenal already played 3 matches and collected 6 points. Last Saturday, they faced ex-champions of PL at Anfield, and there were no doubts that Liverpool will come as a winner of the match. The Arsenal team was supposed to be stronger in defence after the signing of David Luiz, but he is also far from the good shape recently. Already in the first half, the team fell apart and conceded a goal from Matip in 41 minutes. At the beginning of the second half, M. Salah hit the gate twice within 10 minutes and buried all the chances of the fight, even for 1 point. Lucas Torreira softened the loss by scoring a goal at the 85th minute, but that didn’t change the situation. In general, Liverpool had much more chances to score, as they shot 25 times, while Arsenal only 9. The Gunners had only 32 dangerous attacks, while the Reds 110. Of course, Liverpool played with last year squad. All players know each other very well and play strongly, according to this Arsenal with a modified team was hard to confront the experienced players of Liverpool.

In general, new Arsenal players are starting to unfold, in particular, we are waiting for this from the young Pepe who came from Lille. Moreover, Daniel Ceballos, too, must strengthen the centre and show what he is capable of. Therefore, we think that Arsenal has everything in front this year. Unfortunately, Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney and Konstantinos Mavropanos will miss next game due to injuries.

Tottenham

After two first games, Tottenham looked like the favourites to take a place at the top of the League. Spurs won the first game of PL against Aston Villa. They perfectly played against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium and took important 1 point. However, surprisingly struggled against Newcastle at the own field. New Newcastle signing Joelinton scored a goal at 27th minute and was the only one who excelled in this game. Spurs controlled the possession by 80%, had 17 goal attempts, however, failed even draw this match. Even a great attack of the team couldn’t overcome the rivals, who defended almost with the entire team and kept the victory in the match. This is a bad indicator, since there are still very serious rivals in front, and they need to find ways to break the opponents’ defence. Already at the beginning of the season, the team lost valuable points, therefore it will be necessary to play now even more confidently against others.

Unfortunately, Juan Foyth and Ryan Sessegnon will miss the next match due to injuries. Moreover, Juan should miss 3 matches due to red card on 4th of May against Bournemouth.
