For the past two seasons, Tottenham finished higher than their arch-rivals Arsenal where before that Arsenal had looked down on their rivals in the table every season since 1994/1995.
Pochettino has built a very good team with quality all over the pitch. As yet he has not delivered a trophy for Tottenham, but it may only be a matter of time with Kane, Son, Alli, Eriksen and Lloris all in top form.
Both teams come into this in good form with Arsenal unbeaten in the League since the defeat to Chelsea back in August & Spurs are on a 3 match winning run after defeat at home to Man City.
Arsenal have quality all over the pitch with Aubameyang, Lacazette, Torreira and Leno impressing so far this season. Their 2-1 win away at Bournemouth shows better mental strength in the team compared to last season.
For Spurs, they delivered their a superb performance beating top 4 challengers Chelsea 3-1 at Wembley with Alli, Kane and Son all on the score sheet in a match they could have won by more. With a 3-0 win at Old Trafford Spurs are beating the top sides and making a statement to be in the Top 4 again at the end of the season.
Tottenham are 3 points above Arsenal in the League with both teams on the same goal difference. A win for Spurs 17/10 (2.70) takes them further clear of Arsenal and reaffirms their status as London’s top side.
