Pochettino rumoured to be on his way as Tottenham face difficult challenge at Emirates

Published

The North London Derby takes centre stage at 4:30pm on Sunday with both sides looking to get back to winning ways.

Arsenal were disappointing in their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool last weekend.

Defensively they couldn’t cope with Liverpool’s front three, in midfield they were outclassed and going forward they showed signs of promise, but nothing too serious to worry a defensive unit containing Van Dijk, the UEFA Player of the year.

That said, Unai Emery and the Arsenal faithful will be relatively happy with their start to the season taking six points from a possible nine.

Aubameyang has two goals in three and is 9/2 to open the scoring on Sunday.

Spurs heads to the Emirates following a disastrous result at home to Newcastle last weekend! The Magpies secured their first win of the season with a 1-0 victory, leaving Tottenham fans reeling.

Pochettino’s side were well off the pace. Harry Kane looked sluggish, which is a concern considering we’re only three games into the season.

In midfield they lacked that cutting edge with Christian Eriksen once again deployed from the bench with just 20 minutes remaining. Questions still remain over his future. And defensively they looked shaky.

On the road Tottenham have been dreadful of late, not winning an away league game since January. Not good the week before a trip to your arch rivals.

Arsenal thumped their rivals 4-2 in last season’s Premier League encounter at the Emirates. It’s 50/1 for a repeat of the scoreline.

However goals could be at a minimum. That 4-2 victory was the only game in the last eight to witness over 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals is available at 29/20.

Harry Kane game under lots of scrutiny last week, and I expect him to bounce back in typical fashion. He’s 9/2 to open the scoring, 11/10 to score anytime and 33/1 to score a hat-trick.

It’s no surprise to see Arsenal as 11/8 favourites considering their home form against Spurs.

The draw is a decent looking 13/5 and Tottenham can be backed at 2/1 to bag a rare three points at the Emirates.
