Analysis and forecast for the match of the 22nd round of the championship of England “Tottenham” – “Arsenal” (12.05.2022)

On May 12, an interesting rescheduled meeting of the 22nd round of the English Premier League will take place. Two London clubs, Tottenham and Arsenal, will compete at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. The situation is heated up by the fact that the clubs are in close proximity to each other in the standings and are fighting for a ticket to the next Champions League.

Tottenham are in fifth place, four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal. It will not be easy to catch up with a principled rival. Moreover, in the last four rounds of the English Championship, success is extremely doubtful. During this period, the club won only one victory – over Leicester (3: 1).

He also drew with Brantford (0:0) and Liverpool (1:1) and was defeated by Brighton (0:1). Most questions are caused by meetings in which it was not possible to score. After all, the Spurs have an effective bunch of strikers in their assets, which consists of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

It is not the first year that the forwards have been interacting well on the football field. And under the leadership of Antonio Conte, who moved to the lilac-white camp in November last year, their effectiveness has increased significantly. In the current draw of the Premier League, the Englishman and the Korean have built as many as 33 balls together. Impressively.

Why didn’t you manage to hit the gates of Brighton and Brentford? The answer is banal. Lacked stability. The Italian coach is just getting used to managing the team. Prior to that, his wards had a series of four victories in a row – over Brighton (2:0), West Ham (3:1), Newcastle (5:1) and Aston Villa (4:0). It was not possible to maintain this pace for a long time.

On the other hand, Arsenal are not known for their stability this season in the Premier League. In the last four rounds, the club played strictly to win. As a result, he beat strong Chelsea (4:2), Manchester United (3:1), West Ham (2:1) and Leeds (2:1). But before that, he suffered three defeats in a row – from Crystal Palace (0:3), Brighton (1:2) and Southampton (0:1).

Mikel Arteta has a very young squad that just doesn’t have the experience to play at a high level every game. Of course, the players are very talented. They please with scoring, great speed and individual skill, but sometimes they give frankly bad matches.

One of the most obvious examples of this is the defeat in the 1/32 finals of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest (0:1) and the subsequent relegation from the competition. In that meeting, the Londoners failed to deliver a single shot on target with 10 shots in principle. But Mikel Arteta released the main team. The class was missing here.

Although such performances are quite rare for the Gunners. They prefer an attacking model of play and take advantage of the speed of flankers Bukayo Saki, Emil Smith-Roe and Gabriel Martinelli. Due to this, they have decent statistics at a distance: 56 goals have been scored in 35 meetings in the Premier League. True, we missed a lot during this period – 42.

Spurs have similar numbers over the same period: they scored 60 goals and conceded 40. Of course, both teams are over-motivated to win, but it is problematic to identify a favorite due to instability. But, in our opinion, it is quite possible to check goals in both directions for a coefficient of 1.66.

In five of the last six official face-to-face meetings, the opponents exchanged goals. It seems that this time the attackers will again disappoint the experienced Hugo Lloris and the talented Aaron Ramsdale. By the way, the second one has recently recovered from an injury and after that has never defended to zero in the Premier League.

Forecast and bets for the match of the 22nd round of the Premier League “Tottenham” – “Arsenal” on May 12, 2022

“Tottenham” under Conte decently added, even managed to repulse “Liverpool” in the last round of the Premier League match. There is no doubt about his goal, because Son and Kane are in excellent shape. They score regularly and a lot. Failures happen, like at Arsenal, but infrequently. The Gunners also boast an excellent attacking group, which brought victories in the last four rounds of the Premier League. Head-to-head history for goals from both sides. Let’s check this outcome this time.

Bid: both will score for odds of 1.66.
