Super Sunday rounds off with the North London Derby at the Emirates and we’re expecting another fiery clash between the two bitter rivals. Neither side are really thriving so far this term, which only amps up the pressure on both ahead of this massive game.
We’ve got in on the huge build up for this weekend’s clash by putting together a 206/1 Ultimate Bet Builder. We’ve picked out four same-game multi selections and you can back that huge tip below.
Arsenal vs Tottenham Ultimate Bet Builder tip
Arsenal vs Tottenham Ultimate Bet Builder selections
Son Heung-min to score first
Tottenham haven’t found goals easy to come by since Nuno took charge, but Son Heung-min has twice delivered for his new boss. In four Premier League games Son has scored twice, opening the scoring on both occasions.
Spurs have scored first in five of their last seven games and with Son scoring in two of his last three clashes with Arsenal back him to open the scoring in Sunday’s encounter.
A red card to be shown
We expect a pretty physical game at the Emirates this weekend, which won’t suit the home side. The Gunners have a reputation as a soft-touch but they’ve also seen more red cards than any other Premier League side since Mikel Arteta took over.
They have been on the other side of that coin against Tottenham on late. Spurs have been reduced to 10-men in two of their last three league visits to the Emirates. It’s easy to see another sending off this weekend with both sides struggling, so a red card to be shown is the second selection in our bet builder.
Alli & Xhaka to be carded
Don’t expect the cards to stop there. The pair have shared 28 yellows in the previous five meetings and more look likely on Sunday. Starting with the hosts, Granit Xhaka has made 1.7 fouls per game so far and he’s a prime candidate to be booked.
The Swiss midfielder has been booked on six occasions against Spurs across his last nine appearances in the North London Derby. He’s been carded in four of the last five meetings between these two at the Emirates so back Xhaka to get in trouble.
Dele Alli has been moved into a more defensive position this term and he’s getting amongst the fouls as a result. Having made 1.6 fouls per game for Spurs this season we see him adding to his single booking this term.
