ARS vs TOT Dream11 Prediction | Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspurs EPL Prediction
The two London Giants would be seen exchanging blows once again in one of the most illustrious EPL clashes: the North London Derby. However, this would be a battle of wounded combats. Both teams would like to disregard their last week’s performances and rejuvenate their armour walking into The Emirates Stadium. The rival history amongst the two neighbours would make this a must-watch fixture. This fixture in the recent past has been pretty evenly poised; however, there has always been a home game advantage to either of the sides.
Spurs have been a victim of having a high defence line against long balls played by their opposition. This technical error has been quite prominent in all their three games so far. Failing to maintain a clean sheet; their defence has been a significant cause of worry for Pochettino & Co. To add to their misery, the pressure from the frontward mercenaries has lacked the intensity. Although the manager has denied it, the uncertainty over Christian Eriksen’s future has undoubtedly affected the team’s performance, especially in the final third, with the likes of Kane and Son looking helpless up top.
On the other side, the host have managed to win only two matches in the last 10 EPL games against their arch-rivals (Won-2, Drawn-5 and Lost-3). Ironically both the wins have been at home in the previous two consecutive seasons. Mesut Ozil’s absence has been clinical for Arsenal this season.
In spite of having a vulnerable defence unit, both sides are anticipating an end-to-end game of football on Sunday. With the likes of Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Kane, Son and Eriksen this passionately contested fixture is expected to be lightning quick. Last year’s clash at the same venue saw 6 goals amongst the two teams. Aubameyang helped Arsenal to take the lead at the 10th minute of the game only to be trailed by 1-2 goals by the end of 34th minute. A motivated performance saw Arsenal equalise in the 56th minute and finished the game with a scoreline of 4-2.

Dream 11 Tips and Tricks for Tricks for Today’s EPL Match: Arsenal vs Tottenham
Goalkeeper: In spite of a heavy defeat at the Anfield, Leno had an impressive game is expected to benefit from the Home game advantage.
Defenders: Both teams have failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous match. Moreover, there have been tactile and technical errors in both defensive units. Maitland Niles who has already assisted a goal would be the pic of the defenders. Kolasinac would be covering up for Nacho Monreal who has had an EPL departure. Major injuries to the defensive unit would force Aurier to start the game.
Midfielders: Sissoko, Winks and Eriksen have collectively completed 555 passes successfully. With Winks leading the tally at 263 successful passes, Sissoko has assisted a goal in the previous three matches. Ceballos in his 3 appearances has successfully completed 131 passes and also assisted with 2 goals, with Mesut Ozil being doubtful for the game Ceballos is expected to play the no 10 roles for the Gunners.
Forward: We are talking about sheer speed and skills when we look at the forwards for this game. Kane has already scored 9 goals against Gunners in his 9 appearances in the EPL. Aubameyang, the Arsenal Wonder Boy, has both scored (2) and assisted (1) in the three appearances he has made. Pepe in his 3 appearances for Arsenal has had a great impact in manoeuvring the ball in attacking areas, having completed 58 passes he would be a clear choice over Lacazette in the Dream 11 team.
