Tottenham vs Arsenal recent form
Considering the recent run of form, Arsenal have been the better side of the two. The Gunners, whose last defeat dates back to April 16, have won each of their last four matches. Such has been dominance recently that they have defeated the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham during the time.
During these four matches, Eddie Nketiah has scored four goals (brace against Chelsea and Leeds United).
Tottenham, on their part, have been extremely inconsistent, to say the very least. Although they put on an excellent performance against Liverpool in a 1-1 draw, they have won just two of their last five matches. This includes wins over Leicester City and Aston Villa.
Tottenham: D, W, D, L, W

Tottenham vs Arsenal head-to-head
Since the beginning of the Premier League in 1992, Tottenham and Arsenal have played a total of 59 matches, with the former winning just 14 times while the Gunners have come out on top on 22 occasions. As many as 23 matches have been drawn.
Interestingly, Arsenal have won the last two matches against their cross-town rivals, winning the first meeting of the ongoing season 3-1, and also registering a 2-1 win in March 2021.
Before that, however, Tottenham had won two back-to-back matches in July 2020 and December 2020. Furthermore, Tottenham have not lost to Arsenal at home since September 2015.
Tottenham vs Arsenal prediction and football betting tips or Premier League 2021-22
Given the current situation, a victory on Friday would secure Arsenal fourth place in the Premier League. And so, one can expect Tottenham to go all-out against their London rivals in order to avoid the mishap.
To say that results matter more than performances in matches like these would be an understatement, which is probably why odds are favouring Tottenham to win. Arsenal sure have defeated some big names recently, but Tottenham, at their own turf, will be no pushovers.
