After losing 3-1 at home against Benfica in the first leg of their Europa League playoff Spurs have dropped two straight games, and a win here is imperative to their chances at securing one of the four Champions League spots England for next season.

They are currently six points behind Arsenal in fifth position but have played an extra game, putting more pressure to deliver full points.

The good news is that they have only lost once against their rivals in their previous seven home meetings. However, Arsenal has beaten Spurs twice this season in both league and cup play, and as a result the hosts come in as slight underdogs with William Hill listing them at 3.10 in the 1x2 sector.

An outright draw is offered at the same price, with that moving up to 4.00 should both teams score, which is solid value for a derby match with two quality sides.

The Gunners are favoured at 2.40 to take all three points away, and they will be motivated by Chelsea's loss yesterday at Aston Villa. Arsenal sits seven points out of top spot but has two games in hand against the Blues.

Arsenal drew 1-1 away to Bayern Munich this past Tuesday and will now focus its remaining energies towards winning its first Premier League title in ten years. Recent history is on the Gunners' side as they have won four of the last five over Spurs.

Arsenal leading goal scorer Olivier Giroud (12 goals) is listed at 2.25 to score in the match, while Togolese international Emmanuel Adebayor comes in at slightly better value at 2.50. He has 8 goals from only 14 matches this season. He has a 29.6 percent goals/shot ratio, which is very impressive.
