The tight schedule of Tottenham in the Premier League is continuing with a home game versus their biggest rival in England. Arsenal warmed up for this derby with a 5-1 victory over Bournemouth, while Tottenham lost for a second consecutive round, this time against Chelsea (2-0). The newest failure of the team in an away fixture was logical because Mauricio Pochettino’s players didn’t create many dangerous situations for a goal. The Spurs squad will remember this game only with the crossbar hit by Harry Winks from a long distance and the own goal of Kieran Trippier.
Arsenal improved their form and deservedly are on the fourth place in the standings. If The Gunners win on Saturday, they will be one point behind Tottenham. During February, Arsenal had three wins and one loss in the Premier League, which game against Manchester City.
The form of Arsenal in away fixtures against the leading teams in the Premier League is worrying. Since the start of the season, The Gunners lost as guests against Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, while against Manchester United they earned only one point. However, in their current form Arsenal look ready for their opponent on Saturday. Tottenham were totally outplayed in the first game between them on Emirates Stadium where Unai Emery’s side won with 4-2.
The returning of Harry Kane wasn’t with the expected positive effect, but instead harmed the performance of Spurs in an attack. In two consecutive games, Tottenham didn’t create a single goalscoring opportunity, while Son Heung-min is not performing on his usual level. We expect a spectacular match on Saturday, but we think that Arsenal will not be defeated on Wembley Stadium. Tottenham will be affected from the two consecutive defeats, while Arsenal’s players are looking inspired.
