With the Gunners in strong form at home and Pochettino's men looking good on the road, Al Hain-Cole expects a deadlocked North London derby

Arsenal will be looking to regain local bragging rights when Tottenham Hotspur visit the Emirates Stadium for Saturday's North London derby.
 
Without a victory in six league matches against their neighbours, the Gunners are enduring their longest ever winless streak in this fixture but are 7/5 (2.40) favourites with Betfair Sportsbook to bring that to an end by coming out on top in this one.
 
Having won nine of their last 11 league matches on the road, Mauricio Pochettino's team are available at 15/8 (2.88) to pull off an impressive victory on enemy territory.

Each of the last three encounters between the sides on this ground have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them cancelling each other out once again here.
 
Despite their poor recent record in derby matches, Arsene Wenger’s men can at least console themselves with the fact that they have held strong in front of their own fans.
 
Their last home defeat against their local rivals came back in 2010, and that remains one of just two losses they have suffered in 32 league encounters in their own back yard.

Considering they are currently enjoying their longest ever winning streak in the league at the Emirates Stadium with 10 victories on the bounce, it seems unlikely that the hosts will suffer a rare home derby defeat on Saturday.
 
Nevertheless, it would also take something special to see off a Spurs side in excellent form after winning five of the last six league matches, and whose 10 away victories in 2017 is unsurpassed by any other Premier League team.
 
With a tightly fought clash therefore looking inevitable, those 13/5 (3.60) odds are surely worth backing on Arsenal and Tottenham playing out a fourth stalemate in five meetings, as well as a fourth in succession at this stadium.
