Arsenal vs Tottenham Premier League Live Football Score 14 Mar 2021
Former Tottenham striker Bobby Zamora has supported Jose Mourinho amid criticism of his treatment of Gareth Bale this season. The Welsh forward struggled to break into Mourinho’s starting 11 initially, and was also publicly criticised by the Portuguese manager for an apparent lack of desire and poor work-rate.
Recently, however, Bale has rediscovered his best form, and has scored six goals and created three assists in his last six games. Speaking to Ladbrokes ahead of Spurs’ North London Derby clash against Arsenal this weekend, Zamora stated his belief that Mourinho has dealt well with Bale’s situation despite some suggesting he should have brought the best out of him earlier.
We don’t know how Gareth Bale has looked behind the scenes for the majority of the season, but it looks as though Mourinho has just been biding his time and waiting for him to get back to full match fitness before playing him regularly, Zamora said. “Just because you’re Gareth Bale doesn’t mean you’re going to walk straight into the starting XI, especially under a manager like Jose Mourinho.
All eyes will be on Emirates Stadium when Arsenal and Tottenham face each other in the North London derby. The Gunners failed to turn their dominance into triumph in a 1-1 draw with Burnley, with the team remaining in the tenth position in the standings. Arsenal aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Spurs. Since Mikel Arteta should have a full squad to choose from, we predict that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Co. will find the net in Sunday’s showdown.
Tottenham are only five points behind the Champions League berth, and given their three-game winning run in the Premier League, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Gareth Bale should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring a brace in the 4-1 win over Palace. Jose Mourinho is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Eagles.
