Arsenal – Tottenham, League Cup Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ARSENAL - TOTTENHAM
Arsenal finally lost a match after 22 consecutive games without a loss. The gunners collapsed at the end of the match against Southampton, as it was more interesting that the saints had no victory for a very long time and in this case they scored 3 goals after crosses with headers. Leno again proved his weaknesses in the air and hung up, when Charley Austin scored in an empty net afterwards. Arsenal returns to Emirates, where they are much more successful. The Gunners are one of England’s most powerful hosts in recent years.
Tottenham won against Burnley very hard in the league, but still retained their good series and remain third. They will play with Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League’s round of 16, which is not that bad news, though the Germans are very strong at the moment. Spurs must take revenge vs. Arsenal, because of their win earlier in the season. They can certainly take advantage of the weaknesses of Gunners in defense, where they have a lot of absences anyway.
It is clear that whenever they meet, Arsenal and Tottenham, the battle will always be cruel, even if it is a friendly match. Arsenal can not overcome defense problems, although Sokratis will return to the squad. We expect a new open football and this time the outcome of the match will be even more unpredictable, because it is a match for the cup. Our prediction is – Both teams to score a goal of 1.53
