Tottenham and Arsenal meet on Matchday 35, in what could prove to be one of the most important north London derby clashes in recent years. Both clubs have changed managers this season, with Jose Mourinho and Mikel Arteta at the helm for both teams after Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery were sacked towards the end of 2019.
Neither side has enjoyed a hugely successful campaign, but both Spurs and the Gunners are looking to end it on a high as they chase Champions League qualification. This Premier League fixture is simply a must not lose for both managers, as a loss would eliminate one of them out of Europe’s top club competition for the north London rivals.

Tottenham and Arsenal meet in the North London derby on Sunday and this will be the first derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Harry Kane has scored a joint record 10 goals in derbies against Arsenal and both teams are all set for a derby that is crucial to their aspirations of finishing in the European places. With Arsenal currently above their bitter rivals on 50 points in 8th as two points and two places separate the clubs, a loss for either club would be a huge blow to their challenge for the 5th spot.
The hosts have been inconsistent, winning 2, drawing and losing one since the Premier League restarted. Meanwhile, the Gunners have recovered from 2 losses to go 4 games unbeaten, including 3 straight wins before the home draw with Leicester City. Spurs will not want to lose the first North London derby at their new stadium but their fragile defense gives Arsenal hope going into the game.The Spurs will also have to do without Eric Dier in central defense after he was given a 4 game ban, which will encourage players like Aubameyang and Lacazette.
Head to Head
Of the 55 North London derbies in the history of the Premier League, Arsenal have won 20 to Spurs’ 12, along with 23 draws. The Gunners are unbeaten in the last 3 meetings, with the last result a draw 2-2 at the Emirates last September. Considering the importance of this fixture, it should be a cagey affair and much will depend on whether Arteta can outwit Mourinho, and who can exploit defensive weaknesses more effectively.
Both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have hopes of making it into the lucrative Premier League top 4 that guarantees Champions League football. Therefore a victory in what has always been a highly entertaining North London derby, will be crucial to that reality. The Spurs are unbeaten in 3 home matches since the resumption of the Premier League, while Arsenal have won 2 of their 4 away league games.
Also 9 of the previous 13 clashes between Tottenham and Arsenal have seen both teams find the nets including 3 of the previous 4. The last two meetings have ended in draws, with both teams scoring but with Arsenal’s form picking up over the last couple of weeks, it could be a tight game.
Mourinho VS Arteta
Undoubtedly, this will be a top priority match for fans since there are more than bragging rights at stake with both clubs outside the top 6. Arsenal recorded a draw 1-1 at home against Leicester to bring a 4 game winning run to an end, but they have beaten Wolves, Sheffield United and Southampton away from home.
Mikel Arteta’s side have been one of the most improved teams in the Premier League over recent weeks. They were 1-0 up against Leicester but Eddie Nketiah was controversially sent off and Jamie Vardy equalised late. Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur battled to a draw 2-2 in the reverse fixture at the Emirates in September, a second successive draw between these rivals.
Tottenham are struggling to create chances since the restart and Jose Mourinho will try his best to nullify the Gunners. As for the Gunners, they are enjoying their best form since Arteta took over and are better travelers than their rivals at present and can get the win. Interestingly, Arsenal have seen 7 penalties awarded in their last 8 matches against Tottenham which is worth a punt.
