Gunners can extend Spurs’ current misery


There are two Premier League games on Sunday with Everton hosting Wolves before the blockbuster North London showdown between Arsenal and Tottenham.

There’s only one place to start when previewing Sunday’s top-flight action in England though and it’s at the Emirates where the Gunners will aim to make what’s been a difficult week for their local rivals even more painful.

Arsenal to beat Tottenham @ 27/20

Tottenham went down to a shock home reverse at the hands of Newcastle United last weekend and something is not right with Mauricio Pochettino’s side at the moment. They only just squeezed past newly-promoted Aston Villa on the opening weekend and then secured a 2-2 draw at champions Manchester City in week two.

That seems like a good result but they were outplayed for much of the Etihad clash and fortunate to come away with a point when VAR intervened late on.

Therefore, Unai Emery will scent a third straight Premier League home North London derby win for Arsenal, who had won their first two games before going down in a spirited 3-1 defeat at early leaders Liverpool last time out.

Arsenal to win and BTTS @ 51/20

Backing the Gunners to come out on top and both teams to score also appeals, given the fact that in two out of three of both sides’ games so far the BTTS bet would have paid out.

In the earlier game, Wolves – fresh from securing their place in the group stage of the Europa League – go to an Everton side in need of a better performance to the one they turned in at Villa in week three.

Everton to beat Wolves @ 6/5

The Toffees were fairly dismal when going down 2-0 to Dean Smith’s side and, while there was a reaction in the midweek Carabao Cup win over Lincoln City, when they eventually prevailed 4-2, they will need to be somewhere near their best to pick up three points against Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have impressed in their summer Euro run and dispensed with Torino on Thursday easily enough to underline their good form. Three draws from three games in the league so far means the continental action hasn’t yet affected them too much but the amount of games they’ve played in comparison should play into Marco Silva‘s hands on Sunday.

Everton to win by one-goal margin @ 49/20

There’s unlikely to be too many goals at Goodison Park as the Toffees have managed just one so far, while Wolves have just two on their record. Expect a tight affair but Everton can edge it by a one-goal margin.
