Arsenal is playing at home against Tottenham at Emirates on Sunday in a London derby. In the standing Arsenal are on 5th place with 27 points, only three behind the third in Premier League – Tottenham. If the boys of Unai Emery succeed to beat Tottenham in the derby, they will overtake The Spurs and will confirm their excellent performance from the previous months. Arsenal are unbeatable in all tournaments since 19th August, when they lost with 3-2 away against Chelsea on Stamford Bridge.
The previous week for Tottenham and their fans was exceptional. The Spurs have won against Chelsea with 3-1 on the weekend and achieved a crucial victory against Inter with 1-0 in the Champion League, which left them in the fight for the first two places in the group. In the previous two months, they lost only against the defending champions Manchester City. The players of Mauricio Pochettino are the best away team in Premier League with seven wins and one loss during the season.
Tottenham play great in the London derbies and have seven consecutive wins against local rivalries. This gives an advantage for The Spurs, but the London derbies are unpredictable. Arsenal should not be underestimated, because they play good football under the coach Unai Emery. Only a few weeks ago they ended 1:1 at home against one of the title contenders – Liverpool.
I will avoid a full time prediction and bet for yellow cards. Arsenal and Tottenham rarely receive yellow cards (average 3.5 yellow cards until this game). In the last derbies between both teams, there were almost no cards. Our prediction is Under 5.5 Cards, with Draw 1-1 Correct Score.
