A fortnight ago, this match would have been the easiest tip of the week, backing Tottenham to win, probably by a lot.

Recent results, however, have at the very least levelled out the analysis of this North London Derby.

The Gunners picked up a second straight 1-0 victory last weekend but still have not looked all that good, battling by Norwich and Burnley. Mikel Arteta's wards made it three wins in a row in all competitions after blasting Wimbledon 3-0 at home in Round 3 of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. 

Arsenal are currently ranked 13th in the Premier League table with six points from five matches. 

Defensively, they have been much stronger since the combination of Ben White, Gabriel and Aaron Ramsdale was brought in at the back.

They will fancy their chances of containing a super talented Spurs frontline that has failed to fire so far this season, scoring just three Premier League goals.

At the other end of the pitch, it really makes for grim reading with Arsenal’s front line also struggling to test opposing defences. However, the Spurs will have to pick things up having let in three goals against Crystal Palace and Chelsea in their last two Premier League games. They dropped to seventh place in the table with nine points.

The consolation for Tottenham fans is they snapped a three-match winless streak in all competitions by beating Wolverhampton on penalties in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. Harry Kane scored one of the club's two goals in regular time but he has yet to score in the Premier League this season. 

We have seen some classic, high scoring North London Derbies but this is not looking like it will be one of them.

Verdict

At best it’s a gripping contest decided by great defending rather than listless attack.
