Arsenal-Tottenham is Derby of the Weekend

Emirates

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Arsenal-Tottenham will be one of the most entertaining London derbies will will see this season. Lucky for us, this game is live on Sunday morning at 11:00 EDT from the Emirates Stadium in London (Arsenal’s home).

Arsenal are coming off of a 2-0 win over Fenerbahce in the UCL playoffs. They will want to continue this recent success by winning this huge match. With everyone healthy and ready to play, they will be putting up a tough home front against their fellow Londoners.

Tottenham jut clinched their spot in the Europa League after defeating Dinamo Tbilisi. In addition to that good news, they just signed Christain Eriksen (Danish international attacking midfielder) from Ajax of the Dutch top flight. He is fast, strong, skillful and can score beauties from free-kicks. Watch out for him if he plays.

According to rumors, Tottenham are looking to keep hold of Gareth Bale until next week (after the Arsenal game) but there is no guarantee that he will partake in that game. If he does, then he will look to have one last performance of a lifetime for his soon-to-be-old club before embarking of the Real Madrid journey.

Arsenal were looking to sign Angel Di Maria, among other world class players, to help strengthen the squad ahead of their tough Champions League group stage. They have a decent squad that play very well in the 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 which allows them to utilize their skills, passing and countering ability.

This will be a very entertaining match as this is the first derby of the season between the two sides. Both teams will want to make a statement by being victorious at the end of the 90. However, the home side will most likely be prevailing by only one or two goals. If they score more than three, everyone should be surprised as Tottenham have grown much stronger in recent times.
