Away Form: WWWWL
Last Meeting: Arsenal 1 – 2 Spurs
Competition: EPL

We’re hoping for another high-scoring London derby this weekend.

Arsenal were no match for Liverpool last week, as the Gunner’s winning run came to an end. Still, it’s their best start to a season for some time. The Gunners have lost the edge over their North London rivals in recent years, but this year, they may even be favourites coming into this one. Arsenal’s attack will be very tough for Spurs to handle. New addition Pepe is lightning fast and even caused Liverpool problems. If he starts, expect some ropey moments for the Spurs defence.

Things are not quite right at Spurs. After losing at home to Newcastle last weekend, Pochettino admitted there are problems in the dressing room. Just three wins in the last 15 EPL games tells the story. Spurs are third from bottom on form taking that stat. With minds not settled, they must be worried here, as Arsenal are a fine attacking force. We expect goals.
