Tottenham vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Tottenham and Arsenal meet in the North London derby on Sunday with both sides in need of a result for differing reasons.

Spurs’ pursuit of the title continues and they have won eight in a row in the league as they attempt to close the gap on Chelsea.

Christian Eriksen’s superb long range effort was the difference as they recorded a massive win away at an in-form Crystal Palace.

Arsenal needed a late own goal to overcome Leicester City in the week and they remain adrift of the Champions League spots.

Nacho Monreal’s effort was deflected into his own goal by Robert Huth as Arsenal secured a third consecutive win in all competitions.
