Injury-plagued Arsenal will have tough test against Spurs
THE big game of the Premier League this weekend is the Super Sunday clash between Arsenal and Tottenham in the north London derby from The Emirates.
Both of these sides arrive in this one in fantastic Premier League form and this promises to be a close one to call, but BetBright disagree and they make the home side their clear 7/10 odds-on favourites for the match.
The Gunners’ have won their last six Premier League matches, but their 5-1 humiliating defeat against Bayern Munich in midweek would have taken a lot out of them and with an ever growing injury list, they may be advised to avoid at that price.
Arsene Wenger’s side have NINE first team players out injured and surely that will take it’s toll against the better teams in the division and on current form there are none better the Tottenham at present.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are 4/1 with BetBright to gain maximum points and at first glance that looks a very big price.
Spurs’ haven’t lost in the Premier League since the opening day of the season and I’ve been very impressed with this side over the last few weeks, but I just still couldn’t back them for the win.
Pochettino surprised me with his strong starting line-up in the Europa League in Thursday’s 2-1 success over Anderlecht and any other side it would be a concern that the majority of the players will feature again so quickly, but this Tottenham side is the youngest and fittest squad in the Premier League and that won’t be a problem.
I’m a massive fan of backing draws in big derby matches and it’s something that has made me a nice few quid over the last few years and nothings changing my view in this one.
These two arch-rivals are both in great form and with not much between them the stalemate looks the best way to play again at a massive 5/2 with BetBright.
This fixture has a long history of goals and with Tottenham scoring 10 goals in their last three matches they will be confident of scoring again at the Emirates.
In the last 14 matches between these two both teams have scored in 11 of them and that has also been a winner in eight of the last nine Tottenham matches and at 8/13 for a “yes” on the both teams to score market that looks one of the bankers on that market this weekend and a great bet for all neutrals to sit back and enjoy on Sunday afternoon.
I like the overs in most of the goals market with 2.5 a bet at 8/15 and over 3.5 also on my betradar at 13/10 and at a massive 43/4 with BetBright I can’t help myself to play on the “desmond” 2-2.
Olivier Giroud is the only fit striker for Arsenal, but he might have to play second fiddle in this one to Tottenham’s England striker Harry Kane and with five goals in his last three matches the “Hurri-Kane” is flying and I like him at 13/2 with BetBright to open the scoring and also the 9/5 with BetBright on him to score at anytime.
