Fortress White Hart Lane
Tottenham may be leaving White Hart Lane in the future but they have an amazing record there this season. They haven’t lost a home league game all season and the last 12 have all resulted in home victories with Spurs scoring at least three goals on eight occasions. They have four games left after this match but three are away from home, a win here is essential if they hope to catch Chelsea. Midweek saw them beat Crystal Palace away to continue their good form but now for Arsenal. The Gunners scraped a vital win over Leicester City on Wednesday but just can’t afford to drop points anywhere if they want a top four finish. Four of their last five games have been won (one in extra-time) but away form isn’t that fantastic with three straight defeats before a win at soon to be relegated Middlesbrough. Tottenham should be backed to win this game and at Bet365 the odds of that happening are 17/20.
Kane to Score Again
Some people thought that Harry Kane was going to be a one-season wonder but he’s certainly proved them wrong. There’s been an injury or two this season but when fit and ready he’s been scoring plenty of goals with an impressive 26 to his name. A bet on Kane to score anytime in this game certainly looks worthwhile and Bet365 will give you odds of 4/5 on him finding the net.
Over 2.5 Goals Looks Likely
These North London derbies aren’t renowned as boring encounters and especially not when so much is at stake. Three of the last five games between these two sides have had over 2.5 goals scored in them and the last six encounters have seen both teams score (it’s only 1/2 with Bet365 that happens in this game). Tottenham fans won’t be moaning about how many goals they have seen at White Hart Lane this season. Nine of the last ten Premier League and FA Cup home games have seen over 2.5 goals scored. If you’re playing the Gunners at home, expect to see some goals. 16 of their last 18 league and cup games have seen more than 2.5 goals scored. Arsenal do find ways to score goals but that defence isn’t entirely trustworthy and you wonder if Arsene Wenger will play three at the back against the likes of Kane, Eriksen and Alli. The odds on there being over 2.5 goals in this game are 8/15 with Bet365.
