The North London derby should kick off the weekend of football on a high note as these two sides usually guarantee goals. Now admittedly now I have said this it’s probably going to be 0-0 but I’m siding with the stats for this fixture and here’s why.
The last 7 fixtures between these two sides have seen it go over 2.5 goals and the last 2 visits that AVB’s men have arrived at the Emerites has seen it go over 4.5 goals!! Need I go on?
Spurs have scored in all 5 away fixtures so far this season scoring 10 goals. More?
Tottenham haven’t kept a clean sheet in 7 while Arsenal haven’t in 4.
AVB’s Spurs have a few injury worries ahead of the game and if Defoe doesn’t make it that will be a massive blow as the England striker is in good form after his hat trick in Europe, having said that they have more than enough fire power in Adebayor, Dempsey and Bale if Defoe fails his fitness test. The Gunners form and especially their defence must be a massive worry to Wenger as they have conceded 11 goals in their last 4 games in all competitions. Having said that they are scoring and Giroud & Podolski should cause the Spurs defence all sorts of problems.
I can see Arsenal winning this especially if Defoe and Lennon aren’t fit and of course there WILL be goals. Famous last words? I hope not. BRING ON THE GOALS.
