Arsenal won the league at Tottenham once upon a time, but securing Champions League football for the first time since 2017 after back-to-back eighth-placed finishes would feel pretty significant too.

They can do just do that with a win on Thursday night, although a draw would virtually wrap up the race for fourth.

Arsenal are currently four points clear of their North London rivals with three games to play and it is highly unlikely that they will drop enough points in their last two games.

Thursday 7.45pm: Tottenham v Arsenal
TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

The Draw

The Gunners’ European prospects looked in major doubt following three successive defeats after the international break, but they have now recorded four victories on the bounce, including impressive wins over Chelsea, Manchester United, and West Ham.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have been virtually flawless since the international break, aside from a disappointing home defeat against Brighton.

They became the only team to take points off Liverpool at Anfield in 2022 after a 1-1 draw on Saturday night and are certain to cause Arsenal plenty of problems on Thursday.

A draw looks the most likely outcome in a clash between two in-form sides.

Heung-Min Son to score anytime

It is difficult to keep Heung-Min Son quiet at the moment.

The South Korean forward has scored nine goals in his last seven appearances and is quickly bearing down on Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

Son has scored 20 goals from just 58 shots this season and boasts by far the best shot conversion of any of the league’s top scorers.

He has scored in three of his last four games against Arsenal, including in the reverse fixture earlier this season, and is good money to do so again on Thursday.

Under 10.5 corners

Thursday’s game is likely to see 10 corners or fewer considering games involving Arsenal and Tottenham have generally seen 10 corners or fewer this season.

On average, Tottenham win exactly five corners per game and concede exactly five corners per game, while Arsenal win an average of 5.1 corners per game and concede an average of 4.5 per game.

Nine of Arsenal’s 12 games have seen 10 corners or fewer, while 12 of Tottenham’s last 15 league games have also witnessed 10 corners or fewer.

There is a very good chance that Thursday’s game will witness a similar statistic.

Over 4.5 cards

Arsenal and Tottenham both sit in mid-table in the Premier League’s disciplinary charts, with both sides averaging just under two cards per game.

Arsenal have received 53 yellow cards and three red cards in 35 league games this season, compared to Tottenham’s 61 yellow cards and one red card.

Tottenham have received 13 yellow cards in their last six outings at a rate of just over two per game, while Arsenal have received 12 in their last six games at rate of exactly two per game.

Combined, those figures are not enough to breach the 4.5 card mark, but one would expect emotions to be running a little higher in a North London Derby with so much on the line.

It wouldn’t be at all surprising to see either side receive considerably more cards than their league average on Thursday.
