Arsenal have climbed above Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table thanks to their narrow win over Burnley.
Spurs were backed by many pundits to claim a win over Arsenal in the North London derby a fortnight ago but these predictions fell flat as they were beaten 2-0 at The Emirates.
They followed this up with a limp 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion at the weekend, while Arsenal beat Burnley.
This converted a four point deficit for Arsenal heading into the derby into a one point lead for the Gunners.
Despite Arsenal holding the advantage, Tottenham are favourites with the bookies to finish higher.
Manchester City are 1/10 favourites with Manchester United 14/1.
Tottenham will be hoping their recent slip behind Arsenal is indeed just a temporary blip, but really it is worrying that this has become a focus again.
Spurs had hoped to be pushing to win the title, but that seems a distant prospect at this point and the season has not even reached the halfway mark.
