Tottenham and Arsenal go head-to-head in the second North London Derby of the Premier League season this weekend, with three points vital for both sides, but for very different reasons.

Arsenal will be hoping to pull further away from Man City, with five points separating the two sides at the top of the Premier League table. Spurs picked up a comfortable three points in their last league outing that left Antonio Conte’s side fifth in the table, though three points could potentially send them back into the top four, depending on Manchester United’s result against Manchester City.

Both sides enter the clash on the back of a win in the FA Cup against League One opposition, with Mikel Arteta‘s side beating Oxford United 3-0 and Spurs beating Portsmouth 1-0. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended in a win for Arsenal, with goals from Thomas Partey, Gabriel Jesus and Granit Xhaka securing a 3-1 win in the North London Derby.

To complete this simulation, we used FIFA 23 and updated the squads with the latest injuries and suspensions.

We predict that Spurs could set up in a 3-4-3 formation, with their line-up as follows: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Doherty, Bissouma, Hojbjerg, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son.

We predict that the Gunners could line up in a 4-3-3 formation, with their line-up as follows: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.

The game started pretty even, with both teams creating good chances, but only one team were able to take them. Spurs came close on multiple occasions in the first half and were denied well by Aaron Ramsdale, but the same couldn’t be said for Hugo Lloris, with the Spurs ‘keeper making an error as the Gunners entered the break 2-0 up.

Gabriel Martinelli grabbed both goals, with the two strikes coming in the 39th and 43rd minutes. The first saw the Brazilian meet Bukayo Saka’s deep cross at the back post with a brave header, leaping over Cristian Romero to head past Lloris. Minutes later it was 2-0 when Odegaard slipped Martinelli through on goal, and the French ‘keeper allowed a poor strike to go through his legs and into the net.

Not long after the restart, Arsenal found themselves 3-0 up and cruising to victory, with Eddie Nketiah continuing his impressive goalscoring form as he tapped Odegaard’s cross into the net from extremely close range. Odegaard had set up two goals already, and he got on the scoresheet in the 73rd minute to make it four and pile the embarrassment onto Conte’s side

As Spurs sat back on the edge of their own box, the Gunners held possession as they looked for a way through with Odegaard orchestrating the move. A pass into the feet of Martinelli created a chance from nothing as the Brazilian did well to flick the ball back into the Norwegian’s feet, and a first-time finish into the bottom corner all but confirmed the win for Arsenal.

Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski were Spurs’ biggest threats, and they were once again denied from close range by Ramsdale late on, with the ‘keeper putting in a fantastic display. With four minutes remaining, Arsenal made it five, and Martinelli grabbed his third of the game.

Causing havoc all night, Martinelli picked up the ball on the left and surged into the middle, easing past his marker with his speed. A quick one-two with Xhaka saw the winger break into the box, and a curling finish sent the ball past Lloris to seal an emphatic victory.

FIFA 23 predicts that Arsenal could run riot against their north London rivals on Sunday, with Gabriel Martinelli starring in a rampant 5-0 win over Spurs. The scoreline may be a bit deceiving though, with Aaron Ramsdale earning the second-highest player rating behind Martnelli after making some big saves early on to deny the hosts in the simulation.
