This Saturday is a derby day in North London as Gunners and Spurs will clash against each other in White Hart Lane for the 5th spot in Premier League table. The Spurs are coming in this match after thrashing West Bromwich 3-0. So, they are in impressive form, plus, they have a prodigious panoply of strikers which comprises the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli. All these three strikers are in the top 15 goalscorers of Premier League this season which is a true testament to their explosive goal-scoring abilities.
However, Arsenal have one thing that Spurs don’t have: Alexis Sanchez (the goal-scoring beast). This season, he has already scored 18 goals in all competitions for the Gunners. If he continues his stunning display of form like this, it will be impossible for Tottenham to counter the Gunners in White Hart Lane.
Arsenal also been heavily dominant in the past few North London Derbies as well, since they have beaten Spurs six times in their last seven meetings. They currently stand at the 5th spot with 12 wins and 42 points in 23 games. On the other hand, Spurs are just a rung below Arsenal in the Premier League ladder with 40 points and 12 wins in 23 fixtures. So, this match’s outcome will be crucial to Premier League standings.
