Our "Prediction Wizard" will calculate, based on the current available betting odds, the implicit winning percentages for the possible outcomes in a match. This will be updated as soon as we fetch the odds from the betting sites and keep updating until the match is finished.
One of the most intense rivalries in the Premier League is between Tottenham and Arsenal. The two are going to meet once more in the Premier League 2021-22 season as they try and lock up fourth place in the Premier League standings. A fourth-place finish would mean Champions League football next season and that is a huge incentive. As things stand, Arsenal is in fifth place with 33 points from 20 matches while Tottenham Hotspur has 33 points from 18 matches.
There is a small chance that this match will have to be rescheduled as Arsenal is missing a number of its best players to injuries, AFCON commitments, and COVID infections.
Tottenham has won three out of the previous five matches it has played against Arsenal. A combination of a decent recent record, as well as the depleted nature of Arsenal's team, has made Tottenham the favorite to win this fixture at all the top football betting sites.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London on the 16th of January 2022.
Arsenal showed a tremendous amount of resilience in its previous match against Liverpool. Reduced to ten men after just ten minutes, Arsenal managed to keep Liverpool scoreless and could have actually won the game had Bukayo Saka converted a brilliant opportunity. Now, Arsenal is expected to be without Martin Odegaard, Emile Smith-Rowe, and even Bukayo Saka is doubtful for this match. Add to this the number of players missing because of AFCON commitments and you have an underpowered Arsenal taking on Tottenham at home.
Cristian Romero and Son Heung-Min are not going to be available for this match but Harry Kane should be a massive threat on his own. It could be a low-scoring contest but we think Conte will be able to continue his unbeaten streak since taking over and may add a win against Arsenal to his record as well.
Bet on Tottenham Hotspur to win.
Tottenham failed to score in its two matches against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and also scored just one goal while playing against Southampton and Watford. It just has not been fluent enough this season to score goals consistently and we don't think that is going to change against Arsenal either. As far as Arsenal goes, it is going to be without so many of its first-choice players that it may revert to being ultra defensive like we saw against Liverpool.
Betting under 2.5 goals for the match is the smart option.
