It is time for the exciting ‘North London derby’ in the English Premier League as Tottenham Hotspur welcome Arsenal. This round #35 match will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. Arsenal are on 50 points and Tottenham are on 49, with both teams only on the fringes of European qualification.
Both these teams badly need a win for furthering their European ambitions. Arsenal are two points away from the top-six, while Tottenham are only a point behind. With the race to Europe promising to go to the last day, both teams can’t afford to lose ground with a loss.
Tottenham Hotspur Preview
Tottenham have been utterly poor in their goalless draw against Bournemouth. They didn’t register a shot on target, although they kept two back-to-back clean sheets. However, Jose Mourinho will hope that the arrival of arch rivals will signal change of form. Tottenham are unbeaten in their last five home league games against Arsenal.
With players struggling all over, Tottenham might not be a safe house to choose fantasy players from. Harry Kane, however, always loves derbies and can be a good pick. Lucas Moura is another player that could be an outside pick for your side.
Arsenal have improved under Mikel Arteta and are now looking to cap it off with a derby win. If they stay unbeaten here, it would be the first time since 2004-05 that Arsenal have remained unbeaten in away London derbies.
All eyes will be on the exciting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is in the hunt for ‘Golden Boot’. The form of Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka also augurs well for selections. With Tottenham expected to sit tight, Arsenal’s wide men could profit.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Harry Kane has scored five goals against the Gunners via penalties. With such a crucial game and a crunch situation ahead, he could be the man for Tottenham.
Bukayo Saka has 12 assists in the Premier League this season. Only two players have assisted more and the pacy winger could be Arsenal’s ticket to victory.
