Just a single point separated these two bitter foes last season in the Premier League and the rivalry is as passionate as ever. Arsenal fans were absolutely desperate for Tottenham to fail in the Champions League final while the Spurs fans had fits of laughter following the thrashing that Arsenal took at the hands of Chelsea.
Add into the mix that these two will meet within their first six games and you can see why the respective fans will be desperate for their team to get the upper hand early on.
Here are their first six games and points predictions.
11/08/2019 Newcastle United A
A lot depends on how much money Newcastle spend but a draw looks strong here – 1pt
17/08/2019 Burnley H
The Gunners to collect all three points against the Clarets – 3pts

Cannot see anything other than a Liverpool win to be honest – 0pts
31/08/2019 Tottenham H
I have a sneaky feeling that Tottenham will prove to be too strong despite being away – 0pts
14/09/2019 Watford A
Arsenal was lucky to get the win lasts season at Vicarage road and I see this being a draw – 1pt
21/09/2019 Aston Villa H

Tottenham to have a six-point advantage after the first six games is the prediction, however, if Arsenal beat Tottenham then they will be level but I just do not see that happening.
