What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Arsenal
Arsenal have suffered two significant dips in their Trueform ratings when on the road and that makes them look vulnerable now visiting Tottenham on Saturday.
Playing this game at Wembley, rather than White Hart Lane, would have clouded the issue earlier on this season, but Spurs now seem fully settled into their temporary home.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham stretched their unbeaten run to 11 games when easing past Newport in Wednesday’s FA Cup replay, despite Mauricio Pochettino making 10 changes for that match.
In the Premier League, Spurs produced a strong second-half showing to draw 2-2 at Liverpool last time out, with Harry Kane holding his nerve to equalise with a stoppage-time penalty, having earlier missed from the spot.
“It was an amazing game to watch – two teams that always try to play exciting football,” commented Pochettino after the Anfield thriller.
“I was calm because the team plays so well. The feeling is we dropped two points. We were much, much, much better than Liverpool.”
Tottenham had previously claimed a convincing 2-0 home win over Manchester United, making it 16 points out of 18 from their last six league games at the national stadium.
Fast-starting Spurs were in front at the break for all five wins in that sequence, so 21/10 they lead at half-time and full-time here stands out from the Tottenham vs Arsenal odds.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Aaron Ramsey hogged the headlines with a hat-trick in Arsenal’s 5-1 rout of Everton at Emirates Stadium, but it was also a good day for two of Arsene Wenger’s new recruits.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan provided three assists when starting for the first time, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got on the scoresheet on his debut.
Those arrivals will help to fill the gaps left by Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott leaving, but the Gunners must still address their issues with travel sickness.
Wenger’s side lost 3-1 at Swansea and 2-1 at Bournemouth last month, making it six defeats in 13 top-flight away fixtures this term, with only three wins secured.
The visitors have at least hit the back of the net in the last four of those losses, though, so 21/10 for a home win and both teams to score is added to our Tottenham vs Arsenal betting tips.
It is also worth noting that Kane has struck in five of the last six north London derbies, making 18/1 he breaks the deadlock in a 2-1 victory an eye-catching scorecast.
TOTTENHAM 2-0 Newport – Dan Butler (og), Erik Lamela
ARSENAL 5-1 Everton – Aaron Ramsey (3), Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Head-to-head: Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham, Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal, Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham, Tottenham 2-2 Arsenal, Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham
