For Tottenham, this weekend represents a decent chance to pull to within 1-2 points of Chelsea, which is the team that they are trying to chase down at the top of the table. Chelsea, on the other hand, is looking to put Tottenham out of the race for the title once and for all.

Tottenham is red hot as of late, and for that reason is a favourite to beat Arsenal at home. Tottenham seems to have all of the momentum in the world right now, and it seems hard to imagine that they won't be able to get past Arsenal at home on Sunday.

Chelsea, on the other hand, has a tougher contest on the road against Everton, so this weekend could see the race for the EPL title get even closer.


Here are the current betting odds for Sunday's game between Tottenham and Arsenal:

Tottenham, 17/20
Draw, 3/1
Arsenal, 16/5

According to the oddsmakers, the five likeliest outcomes of Sunday's match look like this:

Draw 1-1, 7/1
Tottenham 2-1, 8/1
Tottenham 1-0, 10/1
Tottenham 2-0, 11/1
Draw 2-2, 12/1

Tottenham will be relying on Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min to lead them to the net on Sunday, as the two men are 8/11 and 11/10 respectively to score on Sunday.

Some of the other top contenders to score on Sunday include Alexis Sanchez (7/5), Dele Alli (13/10) and Vincent Janssen (13/10).


Arsenal, for their part, desperately needs a win on Sunday if they wish to remain in contention for a Champions League spot next season. Things are looking grim on that front, however, as Arsenal currently trails 4th place Manchester City for 5 points, though Arsenal has a game in hand.

In short, this is an important game for both Tottenham and Arsenal on Sunday - who will come out on top, and will Chelsea stumble against Everton?
