Tottenham vs Arsenal by Ashjkc

Tottenham
VS
Arsenal
This is the capital one cup, once one of the priorities of Arsene Wenger. The Derby between Tottenham and Arsenal puts the away team favourites. However, view the crisis of Arsenal in the premier league, I don't think they will play their regular XI. If you've watched Arsenal play against Chelsea, you would feel sorry for Arsenal- the sending off of Gabriel has been one of the worst refereeing mistake in football history. This is only one episode of Arsenal's fate in this league. We also should remember Arsenal dominance against Liverpool and its legitimate goal called offside by the referee.

 

I think with the huge amount of pressure in Arsenal currently- next decisive matches in premier league, then Champions league and many good players either needing rest or simply can't play for this match. Arsenal will pick a team consisting of youngsters. Cazorla, Welbeck, Wilshere & Rosicky won't play. I expect Sanchez to play but he has been misfiring recently; 31 shots in premier league and NO GOAL (the most shots in the entire league).

 

I don't back Tottenham to win this game easily though. They are underdogs for sure. Dembele, Bentaleb and Mason will be out. The team has been good defensively but average overall. They know Arsenal will play a weakened team today and they have nothing big to lose in the league. They will pick a stronger team today, with the likes of Dier, Rose and of course England's new rising hope - Harry Kane (impressive display last seasons)

 

Overall, I predict a very slow game, particularly the first half. Arsenal will try to dominate the game, with the freshers playing safe and testing the opposition. The game will have real scoring chances in the second half, where the more mature team will pick breakthrough chances in counter attack and try to pick up a goal.

 

I am picking a 1-0 or 2-0 win here for Tottenham but this will not happen until the 2nd half. So, my bet is half time 0-0, offered at 3.25 at Bet365pin
