The Premier League served up its share of entertainment after the international break last weekend with the London derby that saw Chelsea’s unbeaten run and perfect start under Maurizio Sarri come to an end at the hands of Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur.
Another weekend beckons and we have another cracker on our hands with the feisty North London derby coming up between Arsenal and Tottenham at the Emirates while Chelsea will welcome Fulham to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues will be welcoming former boss Claudio Ranieri to Stamford Bridge in a game where they’ll be looking to return to winning ways after the loss to Spurs.
This is a derby game and the last 3 derbies between the two sides at Stamford Bridge have ended in draws. Therefore, the Blues will be wary of any threat that the Cottagers will pose under Claudio Ranieri who has 1 win and 1 loss to his name in his 2 visits to Stamford Bridge as opposition boss.
Meanwhile, it will definitely be a Super Sunday to remember as North London rivals, Arsenal and Spurs come up against each other at the back of a rich vein of form.
Spurs have won their last 5 games in all competitions while Arsenal have returned to winning ways after 3 consecutive draws. The Gunners have won their last 2 games in all competitions.
The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Son, and Christian Eriksen will be waiting to unleash their attacking prowess against the Gunners while Arsenal will be looking to exert their dominance in the North London derby with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Lacazette and Aubameyang.
The last 6 North London derbies in the Premier League have seen Spurs emerge victoriously with 2 wins, the Gunners with 1, and 3 draws.
Tottenham Hotspur currently sit above Arsenal in the Premier League with 30 points while the Gunners are on 27 points, making the game evenly matched for fireworks at the Emirates.
The last win for Spurs in the North London derby away from home in the Premier League came in a 3:2 win at the Emirates in 2010, the rest have been draws and wins for the Gunners.
Arsenal have a new boss on the touchline in the person of Unai Emery and we wait to see how he goes about this cracking fixture.
Arsenal welcome Spurs this Sunday and it’s difficult to pick out a favorite for this one. This should be a cracker, and hopefully, this game serves up massive entertainment.
