Sparkles will be flying when Arsenal and Tottenham lock horns in the North London derby on Sunday in the Premier League. Our sportsbook offers the best markets in the English top-flight league.
Arsenal Scoring Machine
Last time out, Arsenal ended their Goodison Park curse by grinding out a 1-0 win at Everton, with Leandro Trossard’s second-half strike proving decisive. Mikel Arteta’s men have since put PSV to the sword in the Champions League with a 4-0- victory, and they will now look to capitalize on that feel-good factor by claiming North London bragging rights.
While Arsenal has kept its sheets clean in each of their two top-flight road trips this term, they haven’t been as defensively sound on home soil, with Nottingham Forest, Fulham, and Man United all making the net bulge on their visits to this venue. You should expect a high-scoring affair with great value according to our Premier League soccer odds.
The hosts have hardly put a foot wrong this season, opening with a penalty-shootout victory in the Community Shield, winning five of their six competitive games since. However, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for Mikel Arteta’s side, but they should have enough to score twice on their own.
Bukayo Saka scored in Arsenal’s win against PSV in their Champions League return on Wednesday night, so we are backing the youngster to carry his momentum through to Sunday in what could be the most important edition of this game in some years.
Tottenham, Arsenal Equal on Points
Tottenham will also be in high spirits after winning their last four Premier League fixtures. Ange Postecoglou’s side staged a stunning comeback to defeat Sheffield United 2-1 last Saturday, with Spurs scoring twice in stoppage time to pocket the points.
The transition to the post-Harry Kane era has been a lot smoother than many expected for Spurs, with Postecoglou hitting the ground running in North London and leading the club to 13 points from his first five matches in charge.

Son Heung-min is a player who could thrive against Arsenal. He can struggle against low-block defenses but relishes the chance to run in behind a high line. He scored a hat-trick in his last away game against Burnley and has scored in two of his last four meetings with the Gunners.
Tottenham looks well this season. Their main objective is to earn a Champions League spot and are listed high in our Premier League Top 4 Odds to pull it off. Tottenham wing-back Ivan Perisic has suffered an ACL injury to his right knee and will undergo surgery.
Goals Flowing Between Two Sides
Mikel Arteta’s men have conceded at least one goal in a sizeable 18 of their last 22 Premier League outings at the Emirates. Only Brighton and Manchester City have outscored Spurs across the opening stretch of the season. Both teams have scored in each of Tottenham’s last three competitive games.
Arsenal and Spurs have scored 22 Premier League goals between them. Arsenal is unbeaten at home against Spurs since 2010. These games have been characterized by a large number of chances at both ends, with 18 goals scored and only two clean sheets in six competitive games.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Betting Lines
Don’t Bet Moneyline
The Gunners enter this clash as soccer betting favorites, priced at -140 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest odds, while the goal line is set at three.
Neither of these sides has lost a game yet and it’s a risky soccer bet to back one of them to win this clash. Ivan Perisic’s injury is a huge blow for Spurs, but they have a good bench. Although Tottenham was able to beat Sheffield United last weekend, they left it until a dramatic 98th-minute winner to secure all the points and might struggle against Arsenal. However, we still expect them to find the back of the net.
