Tottenham Hotspur prepare to square off against Arsenal in the North London derby on Saturday and the outcome of the match is sure to have a huge bearing in the Premier League title race.

Tottenham Hotspur Match Betting News

Tottenham Hotspur squandered a golden opportunity to move into top spot of the Premier League table after suffering a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham United on Wednesday night and Spurs would most certainly have been left kicking themselves following the game.

Mauricio Pochettino cannot afford his players to feel too down on themselves though as they now prepare for another North London derby when fierce rivals Arsenal pay a visit to White Hart Lane on Saturday and it will be of paramount importance for Spurs to claim the three points on the day in order to avoid losing further ground on leaders Leicester City.

Moussa Dembele, Clinton N’Jie and Jan Vertonghen remain ruled out for the clash but Dele Alli should return to the starting lineup after making an appearance from the bench against West Ham.

Arsenal Match Betting News

As widely expected and much to the frustration of the fans, Arsenal’s usual end of season meltdown has begun and this can be typified by their extremely disappointing 2-1 defeat at home against relegation strugglers Swansea City on Wednesday night.

Now Arsenal find themselves a sizeable six points off of leaders Leicester City and the Gunners’ hopes of winning the title is gradually slipping away through their fingers.

Arsenal now cannot afford to make any slip ups if they are to stand a chance to keep themselves in the title race and a defeat in the North London derby against rivals Tottenham this weekend could effectively end Arsene Wenger’s side’s hopes of claiming the Premier League crown.

Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere are out injured while the likes of Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny are also likely to miss the clash.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal Match Prediction

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches against Arsenal and they perhaps head into the clash on Saturday as favourites. However, the North London derby cannot be predicted on recent form alone and the clash on Saturday will be a very keenly contested battle.

Tottenham are very solid at home and with Arsenal struggling at the moment, Spurs might just end their rivals’ title aspirations with a victory on the day.
