- 7:45 pm: Liverpool vs Tottenham
Tottenham v Arsenal betting preview
Tottenham enter this clash on the back of a 1-1 draw against Liverpool over the weekend, a good point that ultimately saw them lose ground on Arsenal in the race for Champions League football. There are currently just four points separating the Gunners in fourth and their hosts Tottenham in fifth, so Antonio Conte's men absolutely need to win here. Chelsea sits five points above Tottenham and have two favourable matches in the last two gameweeks. The Spurs have just one win in their last four games, though have lost just one of their last eight.
Arsenal were indebted to Eddie Nketiah this past Sunday, whose early brace helped Arsenal overcome Leeds 2-1. That was their fourth consecutive victory in the Premier League having previously beaten Chelsea (4-2 at Stamford Bridge), Manchester UTD (3-1 at home) and West Ham (2-1 at the London Stadium). A win for the Gunners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would be enough to secure Champions League football for the first time since 2016-17. Anyway, failure to keep a clean sheet in seven Premier League matches in a row is not a reassuring statistic before this derby.
Arsenal have won the last two North London derbies, including a dominant 3-1 win earlier in the season when Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge of the Lilywhites. Anyway, the Gunners have not won away at Tottenham since 2014.
Tottenham (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
Barring the quartet of Sergio Reguilon, Japhet Tanganga, Oliver Skipp and Matt Doherty, manager Antonio Conte has no fresh injury worries. Emerson Royal and Ryan Sessegnon will retain their starting berth as wing backs, due to lack of competition out wide. Pierre-Emile Hojberg and Rodrigo Betancur will start in the middle of the park, while Dejan Kulusevski will partner Harry Kane and Heung Min Son up front. The likes of Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn provide further options up front.
Arsenal (3-4-2-1): Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel; Tomiyasu, Xhaka, Elneny, Saka; Odegaard, Martinelli; Nketiah
Mikel Arteta is likely to have centre-back Ben White back available after the former Brighton centre back missed the wins over West Ham and Leeds United. Rob Holding is expected to retaining his starting berth, meaning that a 3-4-2-1 could be deployed. In that case, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Bukayo Saka will play as wing backs, with Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny anchoring the midfield. The likes of Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard will support the in-form Eddie Nketiah upfront. Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey are out through injury.
