One of the biggest North London derbies of the last decade is on the horizon as Arsenal visit Tottenham with a Champions League berth squarely on the line.
With just three matches remaining in the Premier League season and only four points separating the teams in the battle for a top-four spot, the stakes are high — the final Champions League place awarded in the Premier League is still up for grabs.
The two sides are in very different positions entering the match: As the chasers and the home team, Tottenham (5th, 62 points) need a win at all costs, while Arsenal (4th, 66 points) can hold out for a draw and still be pleased with a positive result.
With three of the four Champions League places virtually locked up — Manchester City and Liverpool have already clinched, while Chelsea are on the verge — that leaves the one spot which will be claimed by Arsenal or Tottenham. The Gunners have a four-point lead for the final berth and a win would officially clinch it. A draw would also serve Arsenal well, maintaining their four-point cushion with only two matches to play.

NAME: Tottenham Hotspur – Arsenal
DATE: 12 May 2022
TIME: 18:45 UTC
VENUE: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, England
For Tottenham, they have ground to make up and require a win at all costs to harbor any realistic hope of catching Arsenal. Three points for the hosts on Thursday would throw the whole race for a loop.
What happens if the teams finished tied on points on the final day? Spurs currently hold the tiebreaker with a significant advantage in goal difference (+20 vs. +14).
While there is a good chance this match ends in a draw solely based on how conservatively Arsenal will likely approach this game, the safer play is with the home side.
At this point in the season, given Arsenal’s injuries, Tottenham’s January transfer additions, and Spurs’ home-field advantage, Tottenham are the better side.
Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Betancur have changed the way Tottenham attack games, and while poor results against Brighton and Brentford mean Spurs still have ground to make up, they were also capable of playing Liverpool to a 1-1 draw last time out.
Arsenal may be on a three-match winning streak, but one-goal wins over Leeds and West Ham will not strike fear in Tottenham.
Still, it might be best to stay away from moneyline and spread picks, simply because Arsenal may play for a draw and make Spurs’ life difficult going forward. A draw is a likely result, but if one team will emerge victorious, it should be Spurs.
It’s worth pointing out that the home team has not lost a match between these two sides in Premier League play since a Spurs home defeat back in March of 2014. That streak spans 15 games, with Spurs winning five (all at home) and Arsenal winning four (all at home) to go along with six draws.
In addition, no team has won three in a row in this league fixture since an Arsenal run way back in 1987-89. The Gunners have two wins on the trot, so based on the recent historical trend Spurs could be expected to bounce back at home.
As mentioned above, Spurs is the better side here and should have a good chance of achieving a positive result, but Arsenal also know a draw is good enough in this fixture, and that’s going to cause problems for the hosts.
With that in mind, a Spurs double chance pick is a safer play given they could be stymied by an Arsenal team that has shown it can buckle down and defend on the road. Those double-chance odds can be significantly boosted by parlaying the under, especially with four of the last five North London derbies hosted by Tottenham having seen two or fewer goals.
