Arsenal vs. Tottenham possible, lineups and betting tips
Being unbeaten in the Premier League and tied on 13 points after five games, both teams have had a fantastic start to the season.
Additionally, Arsenal’s 1-0 victory at Everton on Sunday helped them break their Merseyside curse. The Gunners also defeated PSV 4-0 after that.
On the other hand, Spurs go just a short distance across the capital after defeating Sheffield United in a thrilling 2-1 victory last Saturday. To win their fourth straight league game, Ange Postecoglou’s team struck twice in the last minutes.
Predictions for Arsenal vs. Tottenham
The Sunday matchup between these two longtime rivals has all the makings of a high-scoring shootout because they are both offensively much stronger than defensively. Despite making significant improvements under Mikel Arteta’s leadership, Arenal still concedes more goals than they should, especially when playing at the Emirates.
In each of the first three home Premier League games of the season, the Arsenal have given up a goal. In addition, 15 of the 19 top-flight teams who came here last season scored goals. That doesn’t bode well ahead of Tottenham’s visit, a squad that has scored at least two goals in each of its five Premier League games this season.
Although Postecoglou has increased Spurs’ offensive production, their defensive vulnerability persists, and their proactive style may leave them open at the back.
A trip to Arsenal will be a huge step up in level from all of Spurs’ previous five Premier League assignments because teams like Brentford, Burnley, and Sheffield United have all managed to breach Tottenham’s backline this season. The Gunners’ last two home Premier League games have each included four goals, and Sunday’s game appears to follow suit.
Arsenal’s Predicted Lineup
Raya, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Odegaard, Rice, and Vieira; Saka, Jesus, and Trossard.
Tottenham’s Predicted Lineup
Vicario, Porro, Romero, van de Ven, Udogie, Sarr, Bissouma, Kulusevski, Madison, Solomon, and Son.
