Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips: Rivals keen to showcase title credentials
Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips, odds and preview
These north London rivals are flying high and separated by just one point as we pick out some Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips for this weekend’s derby.
The Gunners spent the international break sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table but have defending champions Manchester City plus Spurs breathing down their necks.
Saturday’s match at the Emirates Stadium kicks off at 12.30pm and is live on BT Sport.
Arsenal v Tottenham form
These two teams battled it out for fourth place in the Premier League last season and it was Tottenham who snatched a lucrative ticket to the Champions League on the final day.
Both squads look stronger this season and while it remains to be seen if they can last the distance in the title race, a top-four finish looks a realistic prospect.
Arsenal highlighted their improvement with a clinical 3-0 victory at Brentford last time out as they returned to the scene of their dismal 2-0 opening-day defeat last season which pre-empted their worst start to a campaign for 67 years.
They are a different animal this term and proved it with an organised, inventive display and three well-taken goals from William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus and Fabio Vieira.

Tottenham were 6-2 winners against Leicester two weeks ago and with Son Heung-min ending his goal drought in style with a hat-trick, confidence should be high.
There looks little to choose between the two teams and although Arsenal have home advantage, they look too short at odds-on for victory.
Instead, we prefer 5/6 for the visitors to avoid defeat as the first of our Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips.
Early goals look likely
Arsenal have a perfect home record this season with three wins out of three in the Premier League but they remain without a clean sheet.
The 4-2 win against Leicester was followed by 2-1 victories over Fulham and Aston Villa while Tottenham’s only clean sheets came against struggling Wolves and Nottingham Forest.

They also have injury concerns over goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and defender Ben Davies so this has the makings of an entertaining match.
There have been at least two goals before half-time in each of the last six north London derbies so 8/5 for that trend to continue looks good value.
With recent encounters suggesting plenty of goals on Saturday, we’re looking at the goalscorer betting markets for the last of our Arsenal v Tottenham predictions.
Saliba has been in fine form for Arsenal but struggled for France in a 2-0 loss against Denmark on Sunday.
The defender was substituted at half-time so will at least be relatively fresh for the weekend and having scored two goals already this season, he is 10/1 to find the net again which appeals if Lloris is absent for Spurs.

The visitors will hope Son’s hat-trick off the bench sparks a return to form for the South Korean who will hope to be rewarded with a place in the starting line-up.
Arsenal have captain Martin Odegaard fit. The Norway international missed the win over Brentford with a calf issue but is ready to return having featured for his country in the past week.
Thomas Partey suffered a knee injury while away with Ghana but should come back in, while Oleksandar Zinchenko (calf) is also training, but Mohamed Elneny (hamstring) and Emile Smith Rowe (groin) are out.
Hugo Lloris (thigh), Ben Davies (knee) and Dejan Kulusevski (hamstring) are all doubts for Tottenham but Lucas Moura could be back in contention following a lengthy absence with a calf issue.
