Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal hoisted themselves back to the summit of the 2022/23 Premier League table with a convincing win over Brentford before the international break. Buoyed by new arrivals at both ends of the pitch, the Gunners face arguably the biggest test of their campaign so far with the first North London Derby of the season at the Emirates. Check out SinkorSwimSports as we give you our Arsenal vs Tottenham prediction, as well as all the latest North London Derby odds and match information.
Arsenal have been making steady progress under Mikel Arteta for the past couple of seasons, narrowly missing out on their first Champions League finish since 2016 on the final day of the 2021/22 season. Arteta has stuck to his guns in 2022/23, beefing up statistically the youngest squad in the Premier League with Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko, and Fábio Vieira, all three of whom fit the mold of what the Spaniard looks for in a player for his system.
Sitting atop the 2022/23 Premier League table by one point, the Gunners did lose their first encounter with a top six opponent at Old Trafford against Manchester United on September 4th. If Arsenal want to truly silence the naysayers this season, good results against Spurs and Liverpool in their next two matches look to be the order of the day.
As for their North London rivals, Tottenham are only one point behind in the table without a loss from their opening seven matches. Antonio Conte’s side have looked slightly wobbly when it comes to defending, however, and Eric Dier’s recent performances for England won’t have calmed the Italian’s nerves much.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Head To Head Record
Tottenham’s 3-0 win over Arsenal in May was the decisive blow in both teams’ Champions League hopes last season, with Antonio Conte’s side doing a stellar job in getting under the Gunners’ skin on the day.
Arsenal’s supremacy has certainly been checked over the past few seasons, however, the Gunners are still clear of Spurs with the most North London derby wins at 22 and 15 respectively.
Arsenal vs Spurs Predictions
BetUS have supplied our latest odds for this weekend’s North London Derby. They’ve picked out Arsenal as their favorites by some margin, with the Gunners priced at +110 (11/10), with a draw and a Spurs win back at +274 (11/4) and +280 (14/5) respectively.
This fixture could prove to be the foundation for either of these sides to go on and act as Manchester City’s chief challenger in the title hunt, and we think the frailties Spurs’ defense showed against Leicester might come back to haunt them here. Mikel Arteta is cooking something over at the Emirates, and we’re all here for it. Amp up the North London over at BetUS with a hefty 125% sign-up bonus today!
