Arsenal Vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Current Form & H2H Record
Both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have been in fine form in the 2023-24 season, making it quite an unpredictable affair. The Gunners are coming into the game on the back of an emphatic 4-0 victory over PSV Eindhoven in the UEFA Champions League. They are also unbeaten in the Premier League this season, having won four of their five matches (1 draw). Their best result came on September 3, when they picked up a massive 3-1 victory over Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United.
Tottenham Hotspur have also been on the money under new coach Ange Postecoglou. The former Celtic manager has turned the Lilywhites into an efficient machine, one that not only scores excellent goals but also keeps it tight at the back. Like Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, Spurs are also unbeaten in the Premier League this season, winning four of their first five fixtures (1 draw).
With a goal difference of eight (13 scored, 5 conceded), they find themselves in second place in the Premier League standings, two points behind leaders Manchester City and a couple of places above fourth-placed Arsenal.
Being local rivals, the two teams cross paths quite frequently. According to the data from Evening Standard, they have faced each other a total of 206 times, with Arsenal winning 85 times, Tottenham winning 67 times, and the pair playing out 54 draws.
Arsenal Vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Prediction
Tottenham have played superbly under the Scottish tactician this season, striking the perfect balance between attack and defense. Arteta’s side, too, have been near-spotless, emerging as one of the contenders for the 2023-24 Premier League title. While Sunday’s match can go either way, we feel the Gunners just might nick it, courtesy of their home advantage and deeper bench. We predict Arsenal to pick up a 2-1 win and extend their unbeaten home run against Spurs to 14 years.
