Team News

  • Gabriel Martinelli is a doubt having been forced off in the first half of Arsenal's 1-0 win at Everton last week. The Brazilian missed the midweek 4-0 win over PSV.
  • Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny and Jurrien Timber are all absent for the home side.
  • Gabriel Jesus may get the nod ahead of Eddie Nketiah for this one, while Fabio Viera is expected to feature in midfield with Kai Havertz starting from the bench.
  • Ivan Perisic is ruled out for the rest of the season after he sustained an ACL injury in the week.
  • The Croat joins Ryan Sessegnon, Rodrigo Bentancur and Bryan Gil on the sidelines.
  • Giovani Lo Celso is a doubt, though was unlikely to start even if fit.
  • Richarlison is pushing to start after his match-winning cameo off the bench last week.


  • Arsenal extended their unbeaten start to the season in fine fashion as they thumped PSV 4-0 on Wednesday night. The Gunners have won six of their seven matches this season, though the only time they dropped points was at the Emirates against Fulham last month.
  • Tottenham left it late to secure all the spoils against Sheffield United last week as they earned a dramatic 2-1 win over Sheffield United. Spurs haven't won a Premier League North London Derby since a 3-2 victory at the Emirates back in 2010.
  • This promises to be a entertaining encounter at the Emirates, but Arsenal's record against their north London rivals should see them edge the victory.

  • Nketiah should've been sent off. The tackle on Vicario looks worse every time I see it. Vicario is lucky his lifted his studs out the ground just before impact.

  • Dejan Kulusevski played really well for Tottenham.

  • i didnt get to see the 2nd half but till then i thought that arsenal were more dominant yet spurs managed to create more and better chances - thus their direct play rewarded them on this occasion (not a bad finish by son either). arsenal tested the keeper on a couple occasions but even applying prime possession footy they didnt find it easy to be decisive against the decent spurs box defense, aside from the own goal. lastly, gabriel jesus was very active, fast, agile, direct, brave and threatening but come on man you gotta score that

  • it really should not be a penalty since it is deflected by maddison..

  • Jorginho is a really game changer :D

  • Paul Merson wrong yet again.

  • A really bad day at the office for Cuti Romero:: an own goal, then a clear handball in the penalty and finally a yellow card. I think he should've stayed at bed instead haha

  • The moment Havertz came in it went downhill.

  • @neumi17 strongly agree. another 007 player

  • @neumi17 Rice ran out of gas .

  • @MEHJones Yeah he does not look like he's on the Rice in his career.

  • Draw

  • Over 2.5 goals in the game.

  • @Marbella Goals were never in doubt.

  • Over 2.5 first half

  • @buthethi Interesting, depends on the odds given but not a bad suggestion.

  • Double chance arsenal

  • Hoping for a draw, these top guns need to calm down Predicting 1-1

  • @Aei agree but stats for draw are always low in football I don't have a gut to bet on draw Look at minaco nice for example

  • @Elyas_Djokovic_Canada Historically, 1-1 is a very common result for this fixture.

  • @Elyas_Djokovic_Canada yeah but that's just one out of many yesterday, most derbies end in a stalemate and that between top sides, but of a truth there'll be goals (over 2.5) in this match

  • At home Arsenal are obviously favourites. To get anything from the match Tottenham will need excellent performances from everyone who features particularly Vicario, Romero, VDV, Sarr, and Bissouma. Some people have suggested that Højbjerg might start for extra cover but I don't think it's Ange's style. It wouldn't surprised me if Romero or Richarlison get sent off. I suspect Arsenal will target Porro like United tried to but will have a lot more success. That could lead to a couple of early goals. However, Porro could also be a threat if he stays high and Bissouma and Sarr are able to cover for him. Arsenal might underestimate Udogie and Johnson should get at least one chance from the spaces Arsenal leave behind them on the wing if he features. Arsenal to score from a corner, a penalty, and open play (Rice, Havertz, Jesus) and Tottenham to score a long shot and from the wing (Johnson, Maddison). At least one goal in injury time. Arsenal 3-2 Tottenham

  • Arsenal will score from a set piece.

  • @bLiaaax I agree.

  • Son scores...

  • I see a draw here( btts 100% )

  • @erbil666 100% indeed

  • Goal , goal and over 2.5

  • 3-0

  • Arsenal is missing Partey, so advantage go to Tottenham

  • @wdetac You think Partey is better than Rice? Or do you mean as an option from the bench?

  • Reality check for Ange football.

  • @FootballFanatics Or actually just further validation.

  • Raya will start for. Hopefully Havertz doesn't feature at all.

  • Perišić is injured which significantly reduces the chances of Richarlison scoring. Neither were likely to start but they were both likely to feature around 70-80 minutes.

  • At least one goal from a corner.

  • Arsenal to finish the tie in first half. Mark my words. Spurs new look is entertaining but they have a weak midfield and defence. And Arsenal have some slick 4/5 goal scorers among them. Put a player on Son and you have spurs nullified. Arsenal to score big and win by a 3 goal margin here.

  • @albgunn In the end all Arsenal had were own goals and penalties. Son had three players on him and still scored. Maybe Arsenal just aren't as good as you think they are.

  • @albgunn Interesting that you call Tottenham "weak" in midfield and defence with the performances and stats the Bissouma, Udogie, Romero, and Maddison (player of the month) are putting up. It also sounds like you don't realise that Tottenham have had seven different goals scorers already this season (whereas Arsenal have had six). The difference isn't as wide as you might like. Arsenal playing at home is more significant.

  • @albgunn @deadelvisgrin to be fair, arsenal midfield is weaker than spurs so I doubt your prediction

  • @albgunn in fairness, the main threat from spurs these days is from maddison

  • 3-1

  • Banker home win. Spurs in transition with a brand new manager and a miserable record at arsenal.

  • This match has at least one red card and/or a penalty in it...will be a great watch for the neutrals...

  • @AramisMick Exactly, I've written that several times previously for Arsenal Tottenham matches.

  • Both teams have scored in 8 of the last 9 league games at the Emirates.

  • easy Tottenham win

  • @Jaffe148 definitely. They almost always win at the Emirates. Even the only game in 30 years that they lost away at Arsenal in 2010, they were 2-0 up at halftime. That tells you how easy they've been having things over there.

  • Arsenal will win easy

  • @Adel_dex LOL

  • only one winner here
