Sports Innovation previews the Premier League match between Arsenal and Tottenham and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.

Two sides in desperate need of a win meet on Sunday evening as Arsenal and Tottenham lock horns in a north London derby.

For a change, Arsenal head into the match with their treatment room empty. The Gunners hope this is a sign that times are changing, having endured a tough start to the season. They currently sit 13th in the Premier League table on a mere six points from five games.

Tottenham’s form, on the other hand, has wobbled after a bright start under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo. The 10th-placed visitors maybe three spots above Arsenal in the standings, but they’ve suffered back-to-back 3-0 defeats recently. Now Spurs head to the Emirates, a place they haven’t won in the Premier League since November 2010.

Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.

Stats and Analysis in Premier League

Arsenal enter the match with an underwhelming record from their last 10 Premier League fixtures. The Gunners have scored 13 goals for an average of 1.3 goals per game. They’ve kept 5 clean sheets and conceded 11 goals, which is an average of 1.1 per game.

Tottenham arrive at the Emirates hoping to keep their impressive defensive stats from their last 10 internationals going. The Lilywhites averaged an adequate 1.5 goals per game, with a total of 15 goals scored. In contrast, they only allowed 13 goals against them for an average of 1.3 per game. Rather amazingly, they only kept their opponents from scoring in 5 of the matches.

Top goalscorer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hopes to continue the momentum he has built up in his last 6 appearances for Arsenal. Scoring 4 goals in half a dozen matches is a decent output. Harry Kane has certainly delivered the goods for Tottenham in recent matches. Every opponent will have him singled out as a potential threat following the 3 goals he has managed in the previous 6 matches.
