Arsenal v Spurs – Build-up & Predicted Score for NLD clash

Arsenal will take on their noisy neighbours Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates this evening, with the chance to move level on points.

The Gunners started the new campaign in awful fashion, albeit with a number of obstacles emerging to disrupt our preparation for each matchup, and with both Chelsea and Man City having been our opposition in our first three matches.

We’ve since turned things around, winning against both Norwich and Burnley, but with both sides without a win thus far, today’s test will naturally be a better judge on how far we have come.

Tottenham have endured the opposite opening to the season. They beat Manchester City in the opening game week of the campaign before winning their next two with Watford and Wolves, before losing the following clashes with Crystal Palace and Chelsea.

We will join our rivals on nine points if we are to claim all three points this evening, and I feel that we have to be the favourites with us on a winning run at present, and with our Team News update showing no players absent.

We know that form will mostly count for nothing once the crowd is roaring and the game gets underway, but I can’t help but feel we have the edge, and am backing us to come away with a 2-1 win.

What are your expectations from today’s game?

    Depends if we come out on the attack or if we try caution.
    3-2 or1-1
    I’m hoping for 4-0 but ill take a good preformance.

  3. Quincy Okereke says:

    I am hoping for a win.. score line won’t matter as much as the 3 points.. 1:0 and I will dance under the rain.

  4. Vinod says:

    I wish we win this one even if its a ‘one nil to Arsenal’.

    When was the last time Arsenal manage to get 3 points when rest of the top teams failed to win?

  5. Stephanie says:

    I will be happy with ANY winning scoreline

    But my guess is 2-1 Arsenal

    COYG ❤👍

  6. Ackshay says:

    Win and we are 5 pts behind 1st, not too shabby for a team going nowhere😅

    1. Angus says:

      We’ve got to do it first obviously but a win today and we’ll be 5 off Liverpool in 1st and 4 off 2nd/3rd/4th/5th City/Chelsea/United/Everton. After 6 games having played City/Chelsea/Spurs different perspective all of sudden with 6 winnable games (4 at home) before the trip to Anfield.

  7. Sean Williams says:

    It’s going to be close. With Partey fully fit and no Xhaka I reckon 2-1 to Arsenal.

  8. Adiva says:

    I’m looking out for a great performance first before any acceptable result.

  9. Alan dove says:

    This could well be the turning point.
    My heart wants a win but my brain is saying look at the
    Signpost.a.d.

  10. Joe Gunner says:

    3 point is sure Gunner for life

  11. Angus says:

    NLD can throw up completely random results but going for a comfy 2-0 but would not be surprised if we score more.

    Both of Son/Kane can score a half chance out of nowhere so won’t be easy but haven’t been this confident going in to a NLD in awhile. Think this could be a real turning point in the atmosphere amongst the fans with a convincing derby win.

  12. Longbenark says:

    I would really love a win, and I would love to see Tavarez in that lineup, we need to bully spurs out ,
