Ahead of the first North London derby of the season, Ange Postecoglou's in-form Tottenham have been priced at 2/1 to finish above rivals Arsenal in the Premier League.
It's been a stunning start to the campaign for Spurs under the stewardship of new boss Postecoglou, with the Lilywhites accumulating 13 points from their opening five matches to sit second in the Premier League.
Australian Postecoglou, who arrived from Scottish champions Celtic in the summer, has been able to inject new life into Spurs with a fresh attacking philosophy which is a far cry from the pragmatic approach employed by his predecessor Antonio Conte.
Spurs are only above Arsenal on goal difference, however, with Mikel Arteta's charges also making an unbeaten start to the season with four wins and a draw in their first five games.
This sets up this Sunday's North London derby at the Emirates Stadium perfectly, with two in-form, unbeaten rivals coming head-to-head with both sets of supporters likely to be in confident mood.
Three points for either side would mark a real statement at this early stage of the campaign, with Arsenal finishing above Spurs for the first time in seven seasons last term.
Home advantage could prove crucial for the Gunners ahead of this derby clash, with Spurs having won just one Premier League encounter at the Emirates Stadium since Arsenal moved there way back in 2006, and we have Tottenham at 17/2 to take maximum points from Arsenal.
You have to go way back to May 1993 for the last time that Tottenham Hotspur completed the double over Arsenal and it's 17/2 that they take six points off their fierce rivals in 2023/24.
bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “John Hendry’s name may get a few mentions in the lead up to this eagerly awaited first clash having scored a brace when completing the double in 1993, but Spurs haven’t had much joy since.
“They’ve failed to leave their rivals’ backyard with maximum points since 2010, including a couple of back-to-back 5-2 hammerings in the process, and they’ve lost their main source of goals in this fixture in the shape of Harry Kane.
“However, there is a different feel about Spurs under Ange Postecoglou and confidence is high as they travel to a team that finished 24 points above them in the last campaign and even if they do lose it’s likely they will go down fighting rather than having their bellies tickled.”
A win and a loss can be backed at 2/1, while a pair of draws is available at 12/1.
Tottenham points v Arsenal in 2023/24 Premier League:
With Arsenal coming close to clinching a first league title since 2003-04 last term, and looking a force to be reckoned with again this year, they appear to still be in the driving seat to finish above their biggest rivals this season at odds of 4/11.
