What the decline of 'Are you Tottenham in disguise?' says about Arsenal

  • Petr Cech of Arsenal shows appreciation to the fans after the Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium

The England worldwide will be looking to score his 23rd Premier League goal of the season during this weekend's north London derby against bitter rivals Arsenal. Tottenham will look to put more ground in between themselves and Arsenal in the race for Champions League football next season. This time round it's Spurs who need to do the bossing.

This fixture has produced the third highest number of goals since the commencement of the Premier League. Together with experienced analysts, Professor Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.

He has clarified his comments though ahead of this weekend's north London derby against Arsenal, and as reported by Sky Sports, reminded journalists that he too had fallen victim of diving with Argentina at the World Cup, as well as suggesting that he was previously misinterpreted.

We can tell you Sumpter is leaning toward the total going over, but what about the money line and against the spread? The north London derby, as it's famously called, has the reputation of being one of the fiercest in English football.

Wenger claimed it's now a bigger issue in the Premier League than it ever has been before, and that it used to be a problem with foreign sides and players - but now the English born players are just as bad, if not worse when it comes to taking a tumble and trying to con the officials.

Spurs now find themselves sitting just outside the top four, in fifth place, with just two points separating them and third-placed Liverpool. Tottenham are fifth in the table with 49 points, while Arsenal are at sixth with 45 points.


For the betting man, both teams to score seems an excellent bet, with Arsenal not having kept a clean sheet in their last five games.

Spurs go into the North London derby as the more in-form team, with their last league defeat coming back in mid-December when they succumbed to a 4-1 loss away to Manchester City.

Aubameyang scored on his debut in a 5-1 thrashing of Everton, and could be the 20-goal-a-season striker Arsenal have been looking for for so long. I don't see all of these guys as just my teammates - I see them as friends and I want to show that. In fact, the Gunners have won each of their previous nine matches at the national stadium.

Before Arsenal secured their 2-0 victory in on November 18th, 2017 Tottenham had played four games without losing any with a record of a win and three draws.

"It's hard [to be like Wenger]", he told reporters ahead of Saturday's North London derby.
