Tottenham vs Arsenal bet-builder tips

Bet-builder tip 1: Both teams to score

Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat by Everton in the week proved that a local derby can throw a spanner in the works of a title charge so Arsenal should be wary when they visit Tottenham – and for that reason we have opted instead for both teams to score in the game.

Despite the talk of Arsenal needing a striker, Mikel Arteta’s side have been in imperious goalscoring form, putting five past Chelsea without reply on Tuesday.

Spurs have been one of the most entertaining teams to watch under Ange Postecoglou and have found the net in all 16 of their home games in the top flight.

Both teams to score is also a selection that would have landed in eight of the last 11 north London derbies, including the reverse fixture in September that ended 2-2.

Bet-builder tip 2: Cristian Romero to be carded

After nearly two seasons in the Premier League, Cristian Romero’s reputation proceeds him.

The World Cup winner has been shown 33 yellow cards in 92 appearances across all competitions for Spurs, including three red cards he was shown after being booked twice.

The north London derby is an occasion Romero has relished in the past and he was booked twice in each of his last two appearances in the fixture.

Games between these sides are obviously tense affairs and the last five have produced an average of over five cards so it would be no surprise to see Romero shown one on Sunday.

Bet-builder tip 3: Over four Arsenal corners

For the final part of our bet builder we have turned to the corners market and are backing the visitors to rack up more than four.

Unsurprisingly, given their position at the top of the table, Arsenal average 6.9 corners per game, a figure bettered only by Manchester City and Liverpool.

In contrast, Tottenham concede 6.1 corners per game, with only Manchester United, Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest averaging more.

When these sides met in September, the Gunners forced 11 corners and the averages suggest they should earn more than four at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
