Spurs to silence Gunners in derby clash

Tottenham have usurped Arsenal as the dominant north London side in the last two seasons and they can grab a draw against Arsene Wenger’s team on Saturday at lunchtime.

After finishing just one point behind the Gunners in the 2015/16 campaign, second-placed Spurs were three places and 11 points better off than their great rivals last term.

It was the first time they had finished above Arsenal since 1995, but all the signs are that they will be ahead of Wenger’s team again next May.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team appear to be on the rise while Arsenal under Wenger are in decline. Spurs are 2/7 to finish in the top four this season while the Gunners can be backed at 19/10.

The last three derbies at Emirates Stadium have ended as 1-1 draws and a similar result this weekend can be backed at 29/4.

Harry Kane grabbed Spurs’ equaliser from the penalty spot 12 months ago and the visitors are 21/20 to score the first goal on Saturday.

Both teams have scored 20 goals in their first 11 top-flight fixtures of the season but third-placed Spurs have only conceded seven times, nine fewer than leaky Arsenal’s defence, and Pochettino’s team are good value at 16/5 to keep a clean sheet on Saturday.

Although Wenger’s team have been poor on their travels this season – losing at Manchester City, Stoke City, Watford and Liverpool – they have been excellent at home where they have won all five of their Premier League fixtures so far.

That run could come to an end in the derby, with a draw available at 51/20 and a Spurs victory at 37/20.
