Arsenal vs Tottenham Highlights Premier League 2017-18 Match

Premier League season resumes with a fiery North London derby as Arsenal hosts arch rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, 18th November 2017. Arsenal can go within just a point of Tottenham if they can snatch a win while Spurs can pull off a 7 points away from their north london rivals if they win, which setup a great encounter to set the tone on a very busy Saturday. The game will be an early kickoff with SkySports broadcasting the game live in the UK.

Spurs vs Arsenal Highlights
Tottenham hotspurs have been absolute superb in the league over the last two and half seasons however they failed to win the title on two occassions largely down to the fact that they just can’t seem to get it right in the away games against traditional top 6 teams. They lost against United at Old Trafford and another failure to win against Arsenal at Emirates this Saturday will surely ring alarm bells for manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Last time these two meet was back in 30 April 2017 towards the end of last season where Spurs ran out comfortable 2-0 winners at White Hart Lane. Harry Kane and Dele Alli were on target in what was a very routine win for Spurs. Arsenal will be looking avoid such result against and Mauricio Pochettino will be under the micro scope again if he fail to win yet another away game against Top 6.

Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal – April 2017
[ Premier League 2017 Match ]
55′ 1 – 0 Dele Alli scores on a rebound after Eriksson shot was blocked by Petre Chech.
58′ 2 – 0 Harry Kane made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after referee awarded the penalty for a challenge on Kane inside the box.


Spurs on the other hand have been very successful in this competition in last few years and they were beaten by Chelsea last year in the final. However Mauricio Pochettino has a dilemma to what starting lineup to pick as most of the regulars played three games in just over a week. Harry Kane and new signing Heung-Min Son are expected to be rested which means Clinton N’Jie, Andros Townsend and Érik Lamela to start in attacking roles. While not so regular players like Ben Davies Thomas Carrol, Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose might start.

Here is how I think both teams will lineup for the Wednesday, 23rd september clash at White hart Lane. The final lineups will be announced couple of hours ahead of the kickoff.


Match Predictions: Alot depends on the lineups of course and which manager will take the cup seriously. Since its a derby game and Arsenal are coming into this game on the back of 2 defeats I guess Arsene Wenger will have to take the cup seriously and pick some strong eleven. I am going with an Arsenal win in this one just because I can’t see Wenger losing three games in a row which will mount massive pressure on him.

Mathieu Flamini was unlikely hero as he scored both of Arsenal’s goal in a 2-1 win which will go along way to boost Arsenals’s confidence after back to back defeats leading up to Spurs game.
