Have a look for yourselves. According to the latest B/R Power Rankings, they both are.
Do I really think these are the best two teams in the Premiership? Not really. But I know there’s a reason they each finished in the Top 4 last year, and neither side has regressed since.
Tottenham’s taken some tough results recently, and were winless in four league games prior to this weekend’s shellacking of Blackburn. However, this can be partially attributed to a demanding Champions League schedule that Spurs are unaccustomed to, as well as a recent plague of injuries. We’ll see if the health improves by Saturday, but having a full week’s rest can’t hurt.
For Arsenal, things have been very good of late. Fifteen points in their last 18 and a second-place spot in the League table is a very impressive run of form, but will all that matter against their hated rivals?
Maybe, maybe not. Derbies always tend to be dramatic, and I can’t say I expect a romp for Gunners here. Then again, if I had to pick a team that could win by multiple goals Saturday, there’s no doubt my money would be on the home side.
