TOT Vs ARS Dream 11 Prediction: Tottenham Vs Arsenal. For two sides in a rut, today’s derby win could well end up being the biggest point of their season.
For both Tottenham and Arsenal, the 2019-29 edition of the Premier League has been a despondent and dreary one. Both these London clubs have cut forlorn figures, sides who have found themselves shrouded in dreary and languid displays all across the course of the season.
With just the one point separating these two, today’s encounter is one which takes precedence for these two teams owing to a slew of reasons. While its nature of the London derby was more than enough to see us be immersed in a competitive and feisty edge of the seat thriller, the fact that the winner takes one massive stride towards the Europa League increases the stakes placed on the encounter.
And Arsenal carry an edge when making an advent into the imminent encounter with the club currently on a four match unbeaten spree in the league. The club has worked assiduously under the tutelage of Arteta to try and unlock its true potential, a side which has made for riveting viewing off late with their intricate dedication to squirming their way into the Europa League.
Where Arsenal have been steadily showing that they are a side slowly working on bettering its results with each passing fixture, Tottenham on the other hand have offered no solace on that front. The side’s drab and laggard 0-0 draw against Bournemouth saw them attempt no shot on goal, a showing which emoted towards the massive downgrade they have gone for in the manager ambit.
With Tottenham offering little in the way of attack, they’ll thrust everything in defence, making today’s encounter a tentative affair. Arsenal should manage to scram their way in this tussle with the club showing its capable of stringing together attacking plays of meaning.
