This is the first North London derby of the season and it promises to be an exciting game to watch for the neutrals. Here are our three predictions for the match.

Prediction 1: Arsenal to win

Arsenal have been superb and one of the title contenders this season. The Gunners side have been highly consistent and they did the double over their neighbours last season.
