Who will win The North London derby?

Posted on | February 12, 2018 | No Comments

There’s very few derbies in English football that get as much hype as the North London. The first fixture between the clubs occurred in 1887, but the rivalry didn’t start until
1913 when Arsenal moved their ground only 4 miles away from Tottenham’s White Hart Lane. The main objective for both teams for the remainder of the season is to secure a top 4 finish,
and games like this can help the winner have a strong finish to the season.

According to the Paddy Power football bets, Tottenham are only just favourites to walk away with a win but as any football fan knows, anything can happen in a derby. Both teams have
players that can heavily influence a game. Players such as Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen influence for Tottenham, whilst Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have the
potential to cause huge issues to Tottenham’s defence. It is very likely that a moment of brilliance from any of these players will be the deciding factor. In celebration of the game, we’ve
created this infographic which compares the form of both teams this season, and highlights some key battles on the pitch.

The most anticipated game this weekend is the North London Derby. Both teams are challenging for a top four finish to enter next season’s Champions League campaign. Football odds suggest
that Tottenham are the favourites. Although Tottenham are in a better position in the league, anything can happen in derbies meaning it is just as likely for Arsenal to walk away with a win. They
will also be have wary about the attacking threat of Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. This trio was part of the team that scored 5 goals against Everton, and could
add more goals to their tally should Tottenham lose their concentration. Similarly, Arsenal will also have to be wary of striker Harry Kane who is one of the league’s top scorers and is dangerous
in the final third of the pitch. This derby is going to be one of the most anticipated in years, and in celebration, we’ve created this special North London derby infographic.
