One of the Premier League seasons highlights this Sunday as football fans lock themselves in for another North London Derby with Arsenal facing Tottenham at the Emirates.

The sides have met 172 times in the past in the league, with Arsenal leading the way 70-55, with 47 draws.

It was Arsenal that held sway last season too – winning both league clashes, with this repeat fixture last term ending 3-1 to the Gunners.

You can back a repeat correct score (3-1) at 13.00, while the Gunners have also won the last 2 repeat fixtures by this scoreline.

The match betting suggests more of the same with Arsenal 1.70, the draw 4.20 and Spurs on the table at 4.20.

However, Spurs have started the new season in flying form, despite losing their main man Harry Kane to Bayern Munich in the summer. Tottenham have already racked up 13 points and start the week 6 games in second, on the same points as Liverpool and also their rivals here Arsenal.

Only Man City are ahead of this bunch of teams.

That said, the Gunners have home advantage here and it’s also worth pointing out they are unbeaten in their last 12 at home in the league vs Spurs and have lost only twice to Spurs in front of their home fans in the Premier League (31 games).

With 6 of the last 8 head-to-heads seeing Over 2.5 Goals, this is another betting option at 1.53, while both teams have also scored in 70% of the last 10 meetings and is available to be backed at 1.53 as well.

It’s also a fixture that Spurs have scored in 17 of their last 19 games vs Arsenal, but it’s worth pointing out there’s been 6 draws in the last 20 too, with 33% of the last 9 ending 1-1.

You can back another draw at 4.20, or the 1-1 scoreline at 9.00.

With the sides being bitter rivals, it’s also no shocker that these clashes can be fiery affairs, and this is backed up with 2 of the last 3 having red cards in, including a Spurs red in this repeat fixture last season.

In terms of scorers, Arsenal’s Saka, Nketiah and Jesus are all priced at 6.50 (1st) or 2.75 (anytime), while the shortest-priced Spurs player in these markets is Son at 7.50 (1st) or 3.00 (anytime) – Son has also netted in 4 of the last 7 head-to-heads.

Overall, it’s a game that both teams come into off the back of League wins, but Arsenal have been in Champions League action in midweek so Spurs might come into the clash the fresher.

However, it’s hard to ignore the top home league record of Arsenal over Tottenham, so the safer call is probably to side with both teams to score again at 1.53 – a bet that’s paid off in 7 of the last 10 head-to-heads.

While the draw at 4.20 looks fair value on a game that you could make a case for either team.
