Tottenham vs Arsenal prediction, odds & betting tips

Kick-off: 1630, 15/01/2023

Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Tottenham have struggled for consistency this season but are traditionally reliable when hosting Arsenal in the Premier League.

Spurs have won the last three north London derbies played in front of their own fans and last lost to the Gunners on home turf in the top flight in 2014.

We reckon 23/10 for Antonio Conte’s side to prevail is too big to resist in our first Tottenham vs Arsenal prediction.

Tottenham Hotspur Odds

Tottenham are fifth in the table, 11 points behind their arch-rivals, having played a game more.

Admittedly, Spurs have been plagued by poor Premier League home results of late, losing to Newcastle, Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Even their sole recent success at this venue versus Leeds was a patchy performance, with Tottenham having to come from behind three times before prevailing 4-3.

However, they showed their true worth when romping to a 4-0 victory at Crystal Palace and then beat Portsmouth 1-0 in the FA Cup here with a much-changed line-up.

Assistant coach Cristian Stellini believes Spurs are now ready for derby day, stating: “I think we arrive in a good moment, in a good mood for this type of game.

“It is really a huge game, a north London derby, so nothing to say. It is an important game and we have the team to play this type of game.”

Harry Kane bagged a brace against Palace to make it 15 league goals this term and fired in the cup decider versus Pompey.

The 29-year-old’s brilliant record against Arsenal is also well known, having netted 14 times in past derby battles.

Looking at the Tottenham vs Arsenal odds, Kane can be backed at 7/2 to break the deadlock.

Last Spurs EPL line-up: Lloris, Dier, Romero, Lenglet, Doherty, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Perisic, Son, Kane, Gil.

Dejan Kulusevski is set to be available after returning to training this week after a muscle problem, but Antonio Conte will make a late call on midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur and forward Richarlison (both hamstring). Winger Lucas Moura (Achilles) remains sidelined.

Arsenal Odds

Arsenal, who cruised to a 3-0 win at Oxford in the cup on Monday, have been outstanding this season, but being Premier League leaders brings added pressure.

Many thought Mikel Arteta was starting to show signs of feeling the strain with his touchline antics in last week’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle at Emirates Stadium.

The Spaniard later branded two late penalty decisions as “scandalous” after the Gunners dropped points at home for the first time this term.

Now, they must deal with the psychological barrier of facing Spurs away, having lost 3-0 here in May before being pipped to a Champions League spot by Tottenham.

“We are going to train really hard and we will use the energy, how we felt last year, and use it going into the game,” insisted fit-again midfielder Emile Smith Rowe.

“Obviously, most of us already know how it felt back then. A win would be massive for us. I think it couldn’t come at a better time.

“We are feeling really good at the moment. All the boys know what it means to play in these kind of games.”

This is the kind of fixture where the Gunners will miss the big-match experience of Gabriel Jesus up front, though.

We’re sticking with Spurs to oblige by any one-goal margin at 4/1 to finish off our Tottenham vs Arsenal betting tips.

Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Ramsdale, White, Gabriel, Saliba, Zinchenko, Partey, Odegaard, Xhaka, Saka, Martinelli, Nketiah.

Arsenal remain without striker Gabriel Jesus, who is still some way off recovering from the knee injury he suffered at the World Cup. Full-back Cedric Soares is also absent following a knock in training and Reiss Nelson has a thigh injury.
