Tottenham vs Arsenal: Prediction, team news, how to watch

N

orth London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham go head-to-head on Saturday afternoon, with the two teams experiencing differing fortunes of late.

Tottenham come into the weekend flying high at the top of the table, with last weekend’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea demonstrating a maturity that has only intensified title-talk. 

Arsenal, meanwhile, are down in 14th having endured their worst ever start to a Premier League season. 

The game will be the first played in front of fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since March, with government coronavirus restrictions allowing 2,000 spectators at venues in Tier 2.

Tottenham vs Arsenal prediction: 2-0 home win

It is a fair point that some of Arsenal’s best results under Mikel Arteta have come in games they were not expected to win, but they did, on those occasions, have a firing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. 

With their star man woefully out of form, it is hard to see how the Gunners can both keep Spurs at bay and create their own chances. 

Tottenham vs Arsenal is scheduled for an 4:30pm GMT kick-off on Sunday, December 6, 2020.

The match will be held in front of a limited crowd of 2,000 fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

TV channel: Sunday’s match will be televised on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League. 

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via SkyGo and the Sky Sports app.

Jose Mourinho is confident that Harry Kane will be fit to lead the line after the England captain missed Thursday night’s Europa League draw against LASK.

David Luiz is expected to be fit after his horrific clash of heads with Wolves’ Raul Jimenez last weekend, while Thomas Partey has trained with his teammates after returning from injury sooner than expected.
