Arsenal vs Tottenham Prediction & Match Preview

Arsenal

Tottenham

14 March 2021 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET Premier League Emirates Stadium

All eyes will be on Emirates Stadium when Arsenal and Tottenham face each other in the North London derby. 


The Gunners failed to turn their dominance into triumph in a 1-1 draw with Burnley, with the team remaining in the tenth position in the standings. 

Arsenal aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Spurs. 

Since Mikel Arteta should have a full squad to choose from, we predict that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Co. will find the net in Sunday’s showdown.

Tottenham are only five points behind the Champions League berth, and given their three-game winning run in the Premier League, both teams to score betting option should be considered. 

Gareth Bale should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring a brace in the 4-1 win over Palace. Jose Mourinho is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Eagles.

Team News:

Arsenal have a fully-fit squad for the North London derby, with Emile Smith Rowe making his return from injury as a substitute against Olympiacos in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Arteta is not expected to make too many changes for Sunday's contest, although Pablo Mari should return at the heart of the defence, while Nicolas Pepe is likely to be given the nod over Willian.

Martin Odegaard should again feature as the number 10 behind Aubameyang, meanwhile, with Saka, Thomas Partey and Xhaka also set to retain their spots against Mourinho's side.

As for Tottenham, Giovani Lo Celso remains a slight doubt with a back problem, but Kane should be available despite suffering a knock to his knee during Thursday's clash with Dinamo.

Kane, who is the leading goalscorer in North London derbies with 11, had an ice pack on the injured area in the latter stages of the Europa League contest, but Mourinho revealed after the game that his star player should be fit.

There will be changes from Thursday's match, with Matt Doherty, Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg set to return, while Bale and Lucas Moura should also be in the XI.

Harry Winks was handed a start against Palace last weekend, but Tanguy Ndombele could get the nod alongside Hojbjerg for the North London derby.

Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Mari, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Pepe; Aubameyang
