Todays crucial game against Tottenham is a veritable six pointer for both Arsenal and the Spuds, as our rivals are 3 points ahead of us and keeping us out of the Top Four. If we can beat them today we will be back where we belong and above Tottenham on Goal Difference.
But it certainly will be one of our toughest tests yet, as we can see from Tottenham’s last six games….
You would hope that they are weaker away from home, but here is every away EPL game they have played this season…..
The Spuds have only the one blip when they got beaten by Watford but with wins in every other game it make grim reading for us Arsenal fans, but in compensation, let us look at Arsenal’s Home League results as well, where we have not lost since the opening game…..
Arsenal should feel more confident though playing at the Emirates, where Spurs have only beaten us once in the last 25 games and with our fans behind us we can always play our very best when the LilyWhites come visiting.
Unsurprisingly the bookies are very unsure on the outcome of today’s game, with both sides fluctuating between 13/8 or 7/4, but with our history in this fixture it is safer to back on the Gunners to maitain their record. >Arsenal to win are 13/8 with 138.com.
Three of the last four meetings at the Emirates have ended as 1-1 draws. If you think that could happen again, you can get 6/1 from 138.com.
Arsenal have not failed to score in our last 22 home games against Spurs, so it is likely that both teams will get on the scoresheet again today. New 138.com customers get 30/1 for both Arsenal and Tottenham to score!
In the team news, Arsenal defensive inuries are easing and we are only still waiting for Nacho Monreal to prove his fitness again. Ozil will definitely return for this match and I think Emery will play with his strongest XI available.
I am predicting….
Bellerin Sokratis Holding Kolasinac
Iwobi Ozil Aubameyang
And as for the score? 3-1 to the Arsenal!!!
