Saturday’s Premier League action kicks off at the Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal take on North Londnon rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last ten home league games – their best run since moving stadiums and will move to within a point of their opponents with another victory here.

They did lose to Manchester City last time out and another defeat would leave the door open for Burnley to move above them should they get a positive result against Swansea City later in the day.

Olivier Giroud is set to miss the game with a minor injury so Alexandre Lacazette may return to the starting line-up while Shkodran Mustafi and Danny Welbeck are also pushing for recalls.

Lacazette is 5.5 (9/2) to open the scoring with most firms, with Alexis Sanchez a 6.5 (11/2) chance with Betfair.

The home win is priced at 2.5 (6/4) with the visitors as highly priced as the 2.9 (19/10) on offer from a variety of firms. The draw can be backed at 3.6 (13/5) with Unibet.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men go in to this game on the back of back-to-back victories having beaten European Champions Real Madrid four days before edging past Crystal Palace – a result which saw them move level on points with second place Manchester United.

A win here would see them move to within five points of leaders Manchester City, who travel to Leicester City this weekend.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks could all feature despite pulling out of international duty due to injuries while goalkeeping duo Michel Vorm and Hugo Lloris should also be available though Toby Alderweireld remains out with a hamstring problem.

Kane is favourite to get the first goal of the game at 4.6 (17/5) with Unibet while Christian Erikesen, fresh from his hat-trick for Denmark midweek is a 11.5 (21/2) chance with the same firm.

Both teams have scored in all but one of the last seven meetings between these two sides and you can bet on that to be the case this time around at a price of 1.49 (17/35) with Unibet.rel=”nofollow”
