The North London derby means more than just local pride nowadays, with both Arsenal and Spurs battling it out for a place in Europe’s elite competition.

Both sides currently sit outside of the Champions League places, yet Spurs could safely be in one of those all-important spots based on expected points.

Tottenham have an expected points total of 54.92, 5.92 more than their actual tally which would see them sitting comfortably in second.

Despite concerns at the start of the season of the strains a new stadium can have that so many before them have struggled with, Spurs have evaded difficulties at Wembley in the Premier League that they so badly endured in the 16/17 season.

No team has more shots than Tottenham (21.2) at home, and they are unbeaten under the arch in the Premier League since their first home game of the season against fellow Londoners Chelsea.

Arsenal’s away form has been their downfall this season. Just three wins from 13 games away from the Emirates have made it difficult to keep up with the leading pack and may prove to be their undoing once again in this weekend’s North London derby.

Tottenham vs. Arsenal odds: Where is the value?

Despite Arsenal’s clear qualities going forward, Spurs seem to have more balance across the pitch and with -0.5 odds of 2.080* for a Lilywhites win, they could be the smart bet in the Tottenham vs. Arsenal odds.

Mauricio Pochettino may have steadied the ship against the big hitters recently after defeating Manchester United and drawing to Liverpool at Anfield in their last two outings; Spurs had lost four of their five to the ‘big six’ in the Premier League prior. This weekend's game could offer Tottenham an opportunity to put a real gap between themselves and Arsenal.

Sure, after their impressive home debuts Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang certainly look to have settled in their new surroundings quickly. I may be jumping the gun on this one, but a hat-trick of assists and a goal isn’t a bad way to make your bow in front of the Emirates’ faithful.

Yet scoring goals has never been the crux of the problem for Arsenal; they have scored the third-highest total in the Premier League this season. It is the other end of the pitch in which they have issues that, once again, they have failed to resolve.

An injury to Nacho Monreal has left their defensive options rather limited, and with 35 goals conceded already this year, it is no surprise that the odds are pointing to a Spurs win.

Especially with Harry Kane in such fine fettle, and with three goals and an assist in five against the top six in the Premier League this season, London may just be white this weekend.
