It is game-on in the North London derby in the Premier League on the weekend and there are pretty high stakes riding on this one for both Tottenham and Arsenal. The Lilywhites have been doing what they have had to do in their efforts to catch leaders Chelsea, and that is of course win. They have been cranking along in some immense form with eight straight wins on the board in the Premier League at the moment after they squeezed one out at Crystal Palace in midweek.
White Hart Lane has been a fortress for them this season and they are currently running on a twelve match winning streak in the Premier League on home soil. Their overall record there is W15 D2 this season. They are currently running on a five-match unbeaten streak of form against Arsenal in the Premier League as well, however, four of those five matches have been drawn. But they look to be in the ascendancy at the moment and in the North London power-stakes, Spurs definitely have the edge.
Harry Kane is on a four-match scoring streak against the Gunners and Spurs have rattled off at least three goals in four of their last five home games in the Premier League. Will Arsenal be able to stand up to that kind of power in this North London Derby? The Gunners have slipped to four defeats in their last five away games in the top-flight and Wenger’s men have shipped three goals exactly in each of those defeats. So it hasn’t even pretty for Arsenal out on the road.
If ever there was a time for them to roll up their sleeves and show a bit of passion it is in Sunday’s game. They can’t afford to drop points in his one because their hunt for a top-four finish this season is already looking a bit tenuous. The Gunners go as underdogs for the game, but they need to dig deep and finding something very special in this one as that could be a catalyst for a strong finish to the season, with the added bonus that it could ruin the title hopes of their rivals at the same time.
