Mauricio Pochettino admitted that the title hopes for Tottenham are over after the defeat against Chelsea. The motivation to finish in the third spot still remains for a team, which has stayed unbeaten in the last three home games against their rivals. The disappointment of back-to-back losses will be hard to take, but Arsenal are very poor on the road with four losses in six. Our preview would go with a win for Spurs, who are expected to bounce back in style.

Correct Score odds
Tottenham had no shots on target in the recent game against Chelsea. The club has had a sudden dip in offensive form, but they have scored three goals in back-to-back games at the Wembley Stadium. Arsenal step into the game with one clean sheet – against Blackpool – in the last nine away games. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for the Spurs.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match will witness a lot of tackles and disruptions to the momentum, but that is unlikely to keep the game without any goals. Both these teams have played out highly entertaining matches in recent years and our total goals prediction would go with more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Harry Kane was completely off target in the match against Chelsea, but the England international did have chances that he would usually put away with ease. The 25-year-old has an exceptionally strong record against Arsenal after managing eight goals in as many league appearances against the club. Kane has failed to score only once in his league matches against. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Harry Kane.
