Arsenal’s Premier League Form
Last Time Out For Arsenal
Arsenal’s perfect start to the season came to an abrupt end at Anfield as they fell to a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool. They faced a much stronger side in Liverpool but can take some encouragement in keeping the result closer than in previous years. Arsenal’s new defensive partnership of Sokratis and David Luiz held out for 40 minutes, before Joel Matip rose unmarked from a corner to give Liverpool the lead. After the break, Arsenal’s traditional defensive fragilities shone through, as David Luiz dragged down Mo Salah in the box, with the Egyptian converting the resulting penalty. Salah scored again on the hour mark after he was given the freedom of the Arsenal half, before slotting into the bottom corner. Arsenal’s late consolation came through Lucas Torreira but there was no time for a late comeback. The result means that in 4 of Arsenal’s last 5 Premier League matches, both teams have scored. With Spurs’ coming up with a point to prove, it would be no surprise if it were to happen again.
Tottenham’s Premier League Form
Last Time Out For Tottenham
Tottenham suffered a shock defeat at home to Newcastle on Sunday as they failed to create any chances going forward. Tottenham dominated possession from the start of the match but found themselves a goal behind after 27 minutes, as Joelinton was left open to fire home his first Premier League goal. From that point, Newcastle sat back and absorbed the pressure, but Spurs failed to really test Martin Dubravka. After the break, Spurs continued to keep the ball in the final third, but passes into the box were few and far between. Harry Kane was denied a penalty by VAR after a quiet game in which he failed to register a shot on target. Lucas Moura had the best of Tottenham’s chances but couldn’t add to his goal against Manchester City the week previous. Moura was the most dangerous of the Tottenham front line and if Kane is misfiring again, then Spurs will be relying on him for goals against Arsenal.
Where’s the Value Bet?
Ever since making his Spurs debut, Harry Kane has been Tottenham’s main goal scoring threat and has became one of the top strikers in world football. He has enjoyed scoring against every Premier League team he has faced in those 6 years, but he has his best scoring record against rivals Arsenal. In 9 games against Arsenal, Kane has scored 9 goals and has only faced them once without scoring. Kane’s record extends to teams in the traditional ‘Top 6’ and he has proved he is the man for the big occasion. Bet UK are offering a price of 6/5 for him to score anytime this weekend, and if his past form is anything to go by, then that’s a price that is hard to turn down.

Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tip
Just like when Arsenal played Liverpool, both of these sides have shown defensive fragility as well as quality going forward. Heung min Son getting into full fitness will be a huge step for Spurs to help their front line but we can still expect plenty of goals in the North London Derby.
