Gunners To Fire In North London Derby
Back Arsenal To Beat Spurs
Matt Le Tissier has football betting tips for Arsenal v Tottenham in the Premier League Saturday evening kick-off, live from 17.30 on Sky Sports 1.
Arsenal may have come undone against Southampton in the League Cup, but their recent record in this fixture is impressive and Arsene Wenger will be fielding his strongest possible XI this evening. The Gunners have won the last three North London Derbies without conceding a goal and will be looking to inflict more misery on their local rivals.
Tottenham resumed winning ways against Nottingham Forest in midweek to land my tip, so well done those who followed. That result was desperately needed after a barran spell of results for Spurs and they could do with backing up that success here to get their season back up and running.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “These two sides have thrown up some memorable games over the years and I’m backing Arsenal to extend their run of North London Derby victories at best odds 5/6 with William Hill. Pressed for a correct score, I’d go for a 3-1 at 16/1 with the same firm in the hope the two sides will deliver more end-to-end action.”
Alexis Sanchez sat out the 0-3 win over Aston Villa last weekend, but should return to the fold today alongside Ozil and Cazorla with Welbeck up top. Calum Chambers will continue to deputise for the injured Mathieu Debuchy at right-back with Arteta and Ramsey fielded as a double-pivot in midfield.
Mauricio Pochettino is expected to ring the changes once more with Ben Davies, Jan Vertonghen, Benjamin Stambouli and Roberto Soldado likely to drop out. Adebayor will lead the attack against his old club and will be supported by the trio of Lamela, Eriksen and Chadli, while Danny Rose should return at left-back.
