Mikel Arteta can see redemption on the horizon after consecutive 1-0 wins over Burnley and Norwich City, with Arsenal now looking upwards as far as the Premier League table is concerned. The Gunners have arrested their defensive leakage, with Ben White actually looking like the £50 million player that arrived from Brighton in the summer.

Arteta has gone back to basics to make sure that his team are defensively tight, with White and Gabriel forming a solid partnership in front of Aaron Ramsdale, while Thomas Partey is a solid midfield operator who can help to protect the defence who will be bidding to have a clean sheet against the team’s biggest rivals.

Tottenham are going in the opposite direction to their north London rivals after consecutive 3-0 defeats, with Crystal Palace firing in three late goals before Chelsea turned the screw last weekend despite a bright opening from Spurs which could have yielded a goal in the first half of the game.

Our recommendation is to back Under 2.5 Goals considering that both sides have gone on to win the game when scoring the opener this season, with both managers acutely aware of this stat and this could mean a tight opening exchange between two evenly-matched sides.
