Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal - Premier League preview and odds

April 30, 2017 16:30pm - White Hart Lane

Premier League

Arsenal will look to boost their hopes of European qualification while also denting their arch rivals title hopes when they may the short trip to White Hart Lane for this weekend’s North London derby.

Both sides still with plenty to play for

After what has been a difficult season for Arsene Wenger, his side could still finish the campaign with a trophy and a place in next year`s Champions League campaign. Should the North Londoners pull off such a feat, it might go a long way to placating some of the more discontented voices amongst their fan base.

On the flip side, there is still a chance that the Gunners could come away from the campaign empty-handed and with no European football to look forward to. Their bid to avoid that situation will continue when they face their old enemies at White Hart Lane this weekend.

The hosts are still right in the title race having won their last eight Premier League matches in a row, while leaders Chelsea have continued to drop the odd point here and there. With less than a handful of games remaining, it may just be too late for Spurs but they will want to be ready to pounce should the pace-setters slip up again.

Mauricio Pochettino`s men are unbeaten at home in the league this term and have kept eight clean sheets in their last 11 home games.

Team news

Mousa Dembele (ankle), Michel Vorm (knee), Harry Winks (ankle) and Erik Lamela (groin) are all out of action for the home side, while Danny Rose could also miss out with a knee issue.

Meanwhile, the visitors will have to make do without Laurent Koscielny (knee) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles), while Lucas Perez (fitness), David Ospina (fitness) and Shkodran Mustafi (thigh injury) all remain doubtful.
