Arsenal humiliated archrivals Tottenham Hotspur in their first North London Derby of the season with a 3-1 win at the Emirates. Thomas Partey opened the scoring on 20 minutes but Harry Kane equalised from the spot 11 minutes later. 

Arsenal regained the lead after 49 minutes thanks to a Gabriel Jesus goal. Spurs’ Emerson Royale was sent off just after the hour-mark and Granit Xhaka killed off the game in the 67th minute with a third goal. 

The Gunners now go to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium seeking a second win of the season against Spurs. However, Arsenal have not won away to Spurs in the league since 2013-14. The home team has typically won the matches – or drawn them – in league encounters between these clubs. 

Tottenham Hotspur won their last four games against Arsenal at home. Antonio Conte’s team is fifth ahead of matchday No 19. Arsenal need a win to keep a safe distance between themselves and second-place Manchester City. Meanwhile, Tottenham need a win to reignite their hopes of making the top four.

Sportsbooks’ best betting odds on Tottenham Hotspur winning at full-time are 21/10. Arsenal are at odds of 6/5 to win, while a draw is at the best betting odds of 13/5. Let’s explore some ideas for a bet builder for the Premier League fixture.

Double chance Tottenham Hotspur win or Arsenal win – Bet now


Spurs are on a three-game home winning streak against Arsenal in the league. The home team typically wins matches between Spurs and Arsenal in the Premier League. 

Arsenal’s last win away to Tottenham was in 2013-14. Arsene Wenger was still the manager of Arsenal at the time. Spurs are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League home matches against Arsenal. Five of those seven games ended as wins. 

Arsenal have been good this season. Mike Arteta has the Gunners winning games they would have lost a season ago. The Gunners are the best away team in the league with 7W-1D-1L this season. They won their last three road matches. 

Our betting tips prediction is for a double chance Tottenham Hotspur win or Arsenal win. The Gunners could end up ending the trend of Spurs being undefeated at home in the North London Derby. However, Spurs could spring an upset. A double chance covers two of three possible outcomes. 

Both teams to score: YES


Six of the last nine games between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal ended with both teams scoring goals. Arsenal won 3-1 at home earlier this season to set up the second North London Derby of the campaign. 

The last three North London Derby matches saw the home team score exactly three goals. Last season, Arsenal won at the Emirates 3-1, while Spurs won 3-0 at home. The first derby of this season saw the game end 3-1 in Arsenal’s favour. 

Two of Arsenal’s last four games in all competitions finished with both teams scoring goals. Spurs' defence has improved recently, as they secured back-to-back wins in all competitions. Seven of Tottenham’s last 11 games in all competitions finished with both teams scoring. 

Fifty-two per cent of the Premier League’s 176 matches at the time of writing finished with both teams scoring. Our betting tips prediction is for both teams to score. 

Total goals for Tottenham Hotspur: Over 1.5 goals 

Spurs will have rabid home support behind them at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham play well traditionally at home against Arsenal and are on a long unbeaten run at home versus their derby rival. 

Tottenham Hotspur won 3-0 last season against Arsenal at home. Three of the last four home games against Arsenal saw Spurs score over 1.5 goals. 

Three of Tottenham’s last five games in all competitions finished with them scoring more than 1.5 goals. Both clubs are coming off of FA Cup third-round wins. Confidence on both sides will be high for the match. 

Arsenal have lost just three times this season. Two of those three losses in all competitions were on the road. If the Gunners drop all three points, it will come away from the Emirates. Our betting tips prediction is for Tottenham to score over 1.5 goals. 

Harry Kane to score anytime 


Tottenham should lean on striker Harry Kane in the derby. The England captain scored when these teams played in the reverse fixture from the penalty spot. 

Kane has 15 goals in 18 Premier League games. If Erling Haaland wasn’t tearing up the league for Man City, the world would be talking about Kane’s goal production.

Kane scored five goals in his last five league games for Spurs. Two of those goals came against Crystal Palace in Tottenham’s most recent Premier League fixture. The game finished 4-0 in favour of Spurs. Kane also scored last weekend in the FA Cup third round in the team’s 1-0 win over Portsmouth. 

The Spurs striker has scored 14 times in 18 career games against Arsenal. Kane has a 7W-5D-6L record against Spurs in those 18 matches. Our betting tips prediction is for Kane to once again score against Arsenal. 

Both teams to receive a card: YES

It is the North London Derby, so expect cards to be shown to both teams on Sunday. The reverse fixture saw four cards handed out, two yellows to Arsenal and a yellow and red to Spurs. 

The last games between these hated rivals saw a red card. Three of the last four games between these teams saw red. Will a red card happen once more on Sunday? It very well could. 

However, playing it safe, our betting tips prediction is to select both teams to receive a card. There is a lot to play for both teams, and it is a North London Derby, so cards are bound to be shown by the match referee.
