Premier League clash predictions, betting tips and odds

TOTTENHAM host Arsenal on Thursday night in a tantalizing North London derby that will have massive implications in the race for Champions League places.

There are currently just four points separating Arsenal in fourth and hosts Tottenham in fifth, with only the top four in the Premier League qualifying for Europe’s elite competition.


Tottenham host Arsenal this week

Despite being lower in the table, Tottenham are considered the favorites for the game. Betfair offer Spurs odds of 6/5 to claim all three points and close the gap between the rivals to a single point with two games to go.

Antonio Conte’s side have won just one of their last four games but lost just one of their last eight, including a draw at Anfield last time out, ending Liverpool’s 12-game winning streak at home.

After a three-game losing streak for the Gunners, Sunday’s victory over Leeds means they have now won four on the trot, with Paddy Power offering Mikel Arteta’s side 11/5 odds to make it five.

A win for Arsenal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would be enough to secure Champions League football for the first time since 2016-17.

Sky Bet offer 13/5 for a draw, and also consider Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son to be the most likely to score the game’s first goal, offering odds of 4/1.

Arsenal have won the last two North London derbies, including a dominant 3-1 win earlier in the season against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

However, Arsenal haven’t won away to Tottenham in the league since 2014, when Tomas Rosicky scored the game’s only goal against Tim Sherwood’s side at the old White Hart Lane.

Antonio Conte hasn’t won against Arsenal in his last six attempts, all during his time as Chelsea manager. He has just one win from eight overall attempts, a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge in 2017.
