Arsenal vs Tottenham


Things have changed drastically for the Gunners, sitting on top of the Premier League table after seven rounds of fixtures. Arsenal have six wins from those games, losing only to Manchester United at Old Trafford. They did recover from that with a more controlled win over Brentford before the international break.

That win also saw them register a clean sheet for the first time in four games, but Mikel Arteta knows the importance of the North London Derby up next. The Gunners will be targetting a win to stay on top of the table and avenge a defeat in this fixture from the tail end of last season, which saw them miss out on the top four.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have not been at their best this season, yet remain unbeaten in the league alongside Manchester City. Spurs are level on points with Pep Guardiola’s men and sit behind Arsenal in third. Antonio Conte will be eager to break the Gunners’ hearts with good performances to boost their chances of winning the Premier League title.


Arsenal vs Tottenham Key Stats

  • Arsenal have won their last 6 home Premier League matches.

  • Arsenal are undefeated in 26 of their last 28 home matches against Tottenham in all competitions.

  • Arsenal scored at least 2 goals in their last 6 home Premier League games.

  • Tottenham have won 8 of their last 10 Premier League matches.

  • Tottenham have only defeated Arsenal once in 29 games away from home in the Premier League.


Crystal Palace vs Chelsea


Crystal Palace did show some upturn in the form after their opening night defeat to Arsenal. They have thus far managed draws against Liverpool, Brentford and Newcastle United, although the defeat to Manchester City will have been hard to take for Vieira.

After six rounds of fixtures, Vieira’s men find themselves in the 16th spot, something the manager would like to address. With only a single victory this season coming against Aston Villa, the Crystal Palace boss will be eager to grab another one when they take on a Chelsea side desperately lacking form.

Chelsea have made an indifferent start to their domestic campaign amidst plenty of drama. While their prolific spending in the window has yielded far fewer results than expected, the Blues will be aiming to see the team bounce back and stabilise their shaky start to the campaign.


Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Key Stats

  • Chelsea have won their last ten matches against Crystal Palace in all competitions.

  • Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight matches against Crystal Palace in all competitions.

  • Chelsea have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven matches against Crystal Palace in all competitions.

  • Crystal Palace have not kept a clean sheet at home this season.

  • There have been under 2.5 goals scored in five of Crystal Palace’s last six home games in the Premier League.
