ARS vs TOT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The first North London Derby of the season will be played this weekend when Arsenal host their eternal rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium, in London, tomorrow on Sunday evening (IST).
Arsenal extended their unbeaten streak to an impressive 18 games after beating Vorskla 0-3 in the Europa League. The profile of the team was nowhere near what Tottenham Hotspur are experiencing these days in Europe, in fact, Unai Emery made 11 changes to his starting 11, something can’t be even thought about in the Champions League.
But it could be a blessing in disguise at this moment as the Gunners will be fresh and without any fatigue for this particular fixture. But it would be wise to say that the North London Derby will be one of the toughest assignments for the former Sevilla and PSG manager as he aims to take Arsenal back amongst the very best.
The former Invincibles are very much looking like breaking into the top4 this season as they sit just a point away from Chelsea who are 4th in the table. It’s quite fascinating and to see just a little gap as we were all talking about Chelsea’s unbeaten start, and Arsenal are here, very much looking like taking over.
Tottenham are on a six-game winning streak and three of those wins have come over their London rivals. Last time around, they hosted Chelsea at Wembley and ended up snapping their unbeaten run in all competition. Also, the two victories have come in Europe which has revived their fortunes in the Champions League.
The victory in the North London derby would wrap up a remarkable week for Mauricio Pochettino and also a chance to add some records into the history books.
If Spurs win, their points tally would be 33, their highest after 14 league games. Also, not since 2010 that Spurs had beaten Arsenal in an away game in the Premier League. Effectively, a win at the Emirates would see Pochettino’s side equalling their best winning streak on the road, which will be six.

ARS vs TOT Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Considering the stakes in this match and the form of both the teams, don’t expect a surprise inclusion in this match.
Aubameyang is a top-scorer for Arsenal, while Kane and Son have been brilliant.
Dier is a top-notch defensive midfielder, while Alli is noe of Europe’s brightest young talents.
We have gone with Aubameyang and Son in this squad as Tottenham star has a very good record against his club’s North London rivals.
Mesut Ozil could be a very good inductee, however, his inclusion depends solely on Unai Emery’s preferneces. There are reports that the relationship between the Ozil and the manager is not good by any means.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Arsenal used to rule this fixture but the tide has certainly changed in the last four or five years. In fact, Arsenal’s 2-0 win in the corresponding fixture last season remains their only win over Tottenham in the last eight games.
Having said that, Gunners still boast an incredible record over their rivals, at least at home as they lost just once in the last 25 league games in front of their own fans.
Also, the current form of Unai Emery’s men suggests that Tottenham can’t be considered as an out and out favourites.
Arsenal to get something out of this match.
