Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal Our betting preview


We've picked Spurs v Gunners for our betting preview so make sure you read this before having a punt

There is just a feeling that surrounds the north London derby, an importance, an excitement, a sense of gravitas that few derbies can match.

This particular clash, though, has a little extra importance to it. Both sides are currently outside of the Champions League places, and both will certainly have noticed Chelsea’s recent faltering.

The onus to win the game is certainly on Arsenal, though. They go into the fixture four points behind their rivals and five shy of the top four. Losing it would surely be a tough blow from which to recover, especially with their bitterest rivals having been the ones to have dealt it.

They have good form, historically. In fact, Arsenal have won more Premier League London derbies away from home (52) and in total (121) than any other side in the competition

Two players you’d be well advised to watch in the goalscorer markers are Harry Kane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Kane has scored six goals in six Premier League games against Arsenal, only failing to score in one those games – the reverse fixture this season. The England striker has scored four times in three home Premier League games against Arsenal.

Aubameyang, meanwhile, has scored four goals in four previous appearances against Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions; once in the Champions League (2 games) and three goals in the Europa League (2 games).

There is little value to be found in backing Kane to score these days, but the 21/4 with Unibet on Aubameyang to open the scoring at Wembley is worth a good look.

With this game being played at Wembley, it’s also tough not to find yourself invoking images of the FA Cup semi-final in 1991 with that Paul Gascoigne free-kick.

Spurs won 3-1 that day, and you can back a repeat at 23/2 with Unibet.

Give it a shot and good luck
