The North London Derby highlights English Premier League’s gameweek 11 as the two rivals, Arsenal and Tottenham, do battle at the Emirates.

Arsenal sit three points ahead of Spurs, level on points with top team Manchester City. The Gunners have only lost once in their last six matches against Tottenham. Arsenal are favourites in the fixture according to Bet365 at 19/20.

Spurs have drawn their last three matches in the Premier League and have been misfiring without Harry Kane. Son Heung-Min has lost form after an outstanding start to the season as well. Making Spurs look anaemic in front of goal. According to reports, Kane and defender Toby Alderweireld will be available, but neither will start against Arsenal.

The Gunners are expected to have Theo Walcott, Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal on the bench after the three returned to training this week.

Chelsea will battle Everton in Saturday’s late fixture. The Blues have won four straight and come into the match in fine form. Everton have been up and down as of late, but did pick up their first win in four matches in gameweek 10 against West Ham.

This match will be a face-off between Fantasy Premier League’s top forwards Romelu Lukaku and Diego Costa. Who will get the best of the other and win their fantasy managers the points? Costa has, arguably, the better supporting cast and has the privilege of playing at home.

Manchester City come off their massive midweek Champions League win over Barcelona with a home match against Middlesbrough on Saturday. Middlesbrough won the two teams’ most recent fixture, although that came in January 2015.

The Blues are back in-form and so is hitman Sergio Aguero. The Argentine scored twice in last week’s win over West Brom. Ilkay Gundogan also scored twice and picked up an assist for the Blues, and is in good form.

In Sunday’s afternoon fixtures, Liverpool will host Watford as the Reds look to extend their unbeaten run to nine games. Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been a fantasy manager’s dream. The trio have tallied 12 goals and seven assists between them.

Liverpool’s defence has kept only one clean sheet this term, and Watford could throw up a sneaky challenge. The Hornets won last season at Vicarage Road 3-0, embarrassing Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Manchester United travel to Swansea to take on Bob Bradley’s Swans. Neither team is in great form. United have won once in their last six in the Premier League, and are coming off of a loss in Thursday night’s Europa League competition to Fenerbahce.

Swansea have won four of their last six against Manchester United in all competitions. However, Swansea are mired in the relegation zone and haven’t looked likely of escaping.
