6th December 2020 – 17:30, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London
The 11th round of the English Premier League brings us a derby clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal. The home side wants to remain on the top of the table, while the visitors are looking forward to ending their poor run.
Match Preview & Team News
After the narrow 1:0 defeat in the hands of Everton in the season-opener, very few people believe Tottenham can be one of the title contenders. However, Jose Mourinho’s side tied nine games without suffering a defeat, and that run launched them to 1st place. The Spurs won four times in a row before a goalless draw against Chelsea last weekend. Harry Kane and the lads have been pretty convincing in front of the oppositions’ net, while their defense is the best in the league. Tottenham booked four straight victories at their ground, and they want to keep up where they left off against the fiercest rivals. The home side secured the place in the Europa League knockout stage thanks to a 3:3 draw in Linz against LASK on Thursday, and they can focus on one of the most important matches in this part of the campaign.
On the other hand, Arsenal is having another disappointing season. The fact that the Gunners sit on the 14th spot speaks enough, and although they are only four points behind the top five, their displays are pretty discouraging. After the narrow 1:0 victory at Old Trafford, Aston Villa trashed Mikel Arteta’s side at Emirates Stadium. Leeds United managed to resist at Elland Road, while Wolves were another team that took all three points at Arsenal’s ground. The perfect record in the Europa League is the only positive spot for the away fans, but still, their team didn’t have tough opponents in their group. Nicolas Pepe struggles to find his form, and he will be unavailable for this clash due to a suspension. Arsenal needs to start creating chances and converting them into goals if they want to challenge for the continental spots for the next season.

Goals Market Prediction
Head to head clashes between these two sides have been pretty efficient lately, and just once in the past five matches, one of the sides managed to keep the clean sheet. Despite Arsenal’s problems in front of the oppositions’ goal, we believe the nets won’t remain intact in this one.
