Match Date: 27 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Emirates Stadium

 

Arsenal moved into the ranks of the Premier League elite when it has successfully avenged its controversial loss to Aston Villa last season. The club currently sits on the 4th spot of the table and one could wish that its momentum continues despite a disappointing loss to Southampton in the Capital One Cup.

 

The next test for the sports betting favorite will be Tottenham, which, like them is eager to scoop 3 important points.

 

The contenders

Arsenal

After slapping Aston Villa with a 3-0 victory, the Gunners seem to lose their confidence when Southampton outlasted them in the Capital One Cup. Arsene Wenger and his men lost a down the wire match that ended in a 2-1 win in favor of Southampton.

 

Nevertheless, the lads are confident that what transpired in the said event will barely affect their performance when they meet Tottenham. The club (Arsenal) is even pitted to win at 1.74 in sports betting sites such as 12BET.

 

Tottenham Hotspur

An inconsistent Spurs will face Arsenal this weekend in an attempt to end its winless streak. The club had a strong start at the season’s onset, garnering 2 consecutive victories, but it slowly crumbled.

 

Its narrow defeat with West Bromwich Albion was its 2nd loss after Sunderland forced them to settle for an even steven finish.

 

Possible head turners

Mesut Ozil featured during the match against Aston Villa whilst Alexis Sanchez  continues to prove that he is one of Arsenal’s indispensible asset. Should Ozil continue such impressive performance, his tandem with former rival, Sanchez and the spectacular Danny Welbeck, could produce great results that could immediately make the club a break away winner.

 

Prediction

Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham
