Arsenal Vs Tottenham Live Football Match Score 15/1/2023

Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon in what should be an amazing contest, so we simulated the North London Derby to predict the final score Tottenham and Arsenal go head-to-head in the second North London Derby of the Premier League season this weekend, with three points vital for both sides, but for very different reasons. Arsenal will be hoping to pull further away from Man City, with five points separating the two sides at the top of the Premier League table. Spurs picked up a comfortable three points in their last league outing that left Antonio Conte’s side fifth in the table, though three points could potentially send them back into the top four, depending on Manchester United’s result against Manchester City.

Both sides enter the clash on the back of a win in the FA Cup against League One opposition, with Mikel Arteta’s side beating Oxford United 3-0 and Spurs beating Portsmouth 1-0. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended in a win for Arsenal, with goals from Thomas Partey, Gabriel Jesus and Granit Xhaka securing a 3-1 win in the North London Derby. The game started pretty even, with both teams creating good chances, but only one team were able to take them. Spurs came close on multiple occasions in the first half and were denied well by Aaron Ramsdale, but the same couldn’t be said for Hugo Lloris, with the Spurs ‘keeper making an error as the Gunners entered the break 2-0 up.

Gabriel Martinelli grabbed both goals, with the two strikes coming in the 39th and 43rd minutes. The first saw the Brazilian meet Bukayo Saka’s deep cross at the back post with a brave header, leaping over Cristian Romero to head past Lloris. Minutes later it was 2-0 when Odegaard slipped Martinelli through on goal, and the French ‘keeper allowed a poor strike to go through his legs and into the net. Not long after the restart, Arsenal found themselves 3-0 up and cruising to victory, with Eddie Nketiah continuing his impressive goalscoring form as he tapped Odegaard’s cross into the net from extremely close range. Odegaard had set up two goals already, and he got on the scoresheet in the 73rd minute to make it four and pile the embarrassment onto Conte’s side

As Spurs sat back on the edge of their own box, the Gunners held possession as they looked for a way through with Odegaard orchestrating the move. A pass into the feet of Martinelli created a chance from nothing as the Brazilian did well to flick the ball back into the Norwegian’s feet, and a first-time finish into the bottom corner all but confirmed the win for Arsenal. Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski were Spurs’ biggest threats, and they were once again denied from close range by Ramsdale late on, with the ‘keeper putting in a fantastic display. With four minutes remaining, Arsenal made it five, and Martinelli grabbed his third of the game.

 

Causing havoc all night, Martinelli picked up the ball on the left and surged into the middle, easing past his marker with his speed. A quick one-two with Xhaka saw the winger break into the box, and a curling finish sent the ball past Lloris to seal an emphatic victory. The Gunners have gone nine years without winning at the home of their north London rivals – are Mikel Arteta’s table-toppers about to change that? There was a time when Arsenal winning at Tottenham felt like an everyday occurrence. In fact, such was the regularity of Arsenal victories at the home of their neighbours, fans used to cheekily refer to it as ‘Three Point Lane’.

You have to go back nearly nine years to find Arsenal’s last league success at Spurs, when a Tomas Rosicky thunderbolt sealed a 1-0 win in March 2014. Since then Arsenal have tried eight times to claim the bragging rights at the home of their north London rivals and have ended up disappointed on each occasion, losing six and drawing twice. That’s two points from a possible 24. North London tends to be red when the two teams meet at the Emirates. But when the derby is at Tottenham, it’s been white for a long time now.
