Tottenham vs Arsenal Prediction & Match Preview

Tottenham vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020

Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

In what will be the 201st North London derby, Tottenham have the chance to go five games unbeaten in this fixture for the first time in 24 years. 

They stand a very good chance of doing so, having a very strong start to the season as they found themselves in top spot after the last round of games. 

On the contrary, Arsenal have had a torrid start to the season, by their standards, as they sit in the bottom half of the table. Expect Spurs to remain top come Sunday with a win over their rivals in a game that could contain plenty of goals.

Team News:

Tottenham's talisman Harry Kane faces a race against time to be fit for this one, having picked up an apparent muscle injury and subsequently missed out in midweek.

Mourinho has stressed that he does expect his forward to play, but the Premier League's leading assist-maker this season will need to be assessed ahead of kickoff.

Should he pass that late fitness test then history beckons, with Kane needing just one more goal to become the outright leading scorer in the history of the North London derby.

Kane's partner in crime Son Heung-min played 82 minutes on Thursday night and netted his 12th goal of the season in all competitions - behind only Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Kane himself among Premier League players.

Kane's back-up striker Carlos Vinicius also has a question mark hanging over his head, but Mourinho is hopeful that the Benfica loanee, Sergio Reguilon and Toby Alderweireld will be fit for this one.

Alderweireld suffered a groin injury against Man City last month and has not featured since, but there is a chance he could be ready for this match. Erik Lamela is Tottenham's only guaranteed absentee.

Arsenal were able to welcome long-term absentees Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers back on Thursday night, while Sead Kolasinac also shook off a problem to start.

The Gunners are still without the suspended Nicolas Pepe, but they could be boosted by an early return for Thomas Partey, who is set to be back in training ahead of this match.

David Luiz will also be assessed ahead of kickoff after the sickening clash of heads between himself and Raul Jimenez last weekend.

The decision to allow Luiz to play on in that game was widely condemned, but Arteta has opened the door to him featuring again this weekend if the scar is healing as expected.

Gabriel Martinelli, meanwhile, is nearing a comeback and is expected to play for the Under-23s before making his first-team return early next year.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Son, Ndombele, Bergwijn; Kane

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Bellerin, Ceballos, Elneny, Saka; Willian, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
