It’s derby day on Sunday in North London, but will Arsenal have enough about them to see of Tottenham? Find out what’s going to be key in this much anticipated fixture!
It’s derby day in North London on Sunday as Tottenham travel to the Emirates Stadium to face local rivals Arsenal in a must-win fixture for both sides. Spurs are actually winless in six and haven’t scored a goal from open play in near seven hours of action. The term crisis has been banded around, but I don’t really think Spurs are in too sticky a situation at the moment. They’re being judged on the successes of last season and, ultimately, they set the standards too high for themselves.
At the end of the day, football is somewhat fickle and one good result can overturn weeks, even months, of pessimism and that’s what Tottenham are in dire need of. A positive result would instil their belief in their own ability. For Arsenal, they haven’t beaten Tottenham in their last four Premier League matches, though Spurs have only won once at the Emirates in 26 matches across all competitions.
Derby days are often unpredictable, seemingly bypassing recent form to churn out a result that many couldn’t see coming. We’ve picked out the keys to the North London Derby and what we think is important to each side’s chances of victory.
