Arsenal have five advantages over Tottenham going into derby, from Kieran Tierney to lack of international football

THE North London Derby is unlike any match and as any Gooner will tell you the anticipation felt ahead of the game is unique.

There is excitement of course but it is more than tempered by a nervous energy which makes the build-up almost painful.

Arsenal and Spurs’ league standing means there is added pressure on the North London derbyGetty

Arsenal fans could make a big difference with their noise at the EmiratesGetty

It is a cliche to say that form goes out of the window for derbies but for this clash both teams are in fine fettle.

Indeed, I am not sure I can recall when this fierce fixture was actually a top-of-the-table clash, as it will be on Saturday. The spoils this weekend are so much more than bragging rights.

All that said it is Arsenal, although not unbeaten, who find themselves at the top of the Premier League and for the following reasons, yes with a rational head, I make the home team slight favourites.

It’s at the Emirates

Home advantage can not be understated and the once lambasted atmosphere at the Emirates has transformed post-Covid.

New fans, an attractive team, a togetherness and not forgetting the fabulous Ashburton Army have raised decibels to new levels. That is the case weekly now but for the visit of Spurs the bar will be raised further and Arsenal’s 12th man I see as a key factor.

High press

Arsenal’s collective press, led by Gabriel Jesus, is functioning magnificently and I am not sure Tottenham’s back three or five (as it often is under Conte) can handle it.

Martin Odegaard never stops pressing and Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli will keep Spurs’ wing-backs penned in for long periods.

I anticipate Arsenal’s ability to turn over and win back possession to be a telling factor. I am also not convinced by Hugo Lloris when put under pressure either.

HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON FOOTBALL

Defensive solidity

Tottenham will aim to hit the hosts on the break and in Son Heung-min we know they have a strong weapon.

For this reason, assuming both are fit I expect Kieran Tierney to get the nod over Oleksandr Zinchenko because the Scot is a better and quicker defender.

I would be happy with either Ben White or Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back and as a collective with William Saliba and Gabriel it is a pacey back line that will be hard to counter if they maintain their discipline.

I suspect only one full-back will be allowed to venture forward at a time because of the opposition’s threat.

Keeping Kane quiet

Saliba, despite his relative inexperience, does not strike me as the type of character who will allow Harry Kane to bully him.

The Frenchman is taller, stronger and faster than many of his predecessors who the England captain has been able to dominate in recent years.

For the visitors to prevail Kane needs to be a big influence in the match and I can’t see it, particularly having watched his toiling on international duty.

William Saliba could be key to keeping Harry Kane quietGetty

Fresh legs

Which brings me on to the last key factor which is down to the freshness of Arsenal’s team.

Important players for the Gunners such as Jesus, Martinelli, Aaron Ramsdale, White and Gabriel have been resting and training whilst colleagues played minutes for their countries.

However, even Saka and Odegaard did not play full 90 minutes.

In essence, half of Arsenal’s starting 11 will be fresh which cannot be said for our Middlesex neighbours.

Kane played both matches in full, whilst Richarlison, Son and Rodrigo Bentancur have all played twice on the other side of the world. Even those Gunners who have played, have only done so close to home.

I am sure there are more reasons that should give Arsenal the edge.

DERBY DECIDER

We undoubtedly play the better football but as we saw at Old Trafford that will not guarantee a favourable result. I also think an early goal for us is vital to disrupt Conte’s undoubted plan to sit and defend deeply.

I’m a fashion blogger – my 6 easy tips will make cheap outfits look expensive

One fashion pro has the lowdown on how to achieve a luxury look for less.

Lorna Luxe is a UK-based fashion bloggerInstagram/lornaluxe

She advised followers on how to elevate their wardrobeInstagram/lornaluxe

Lorna Luxe is a UK-based fashion and lifestyle blogger.

She took to Instagram to share her six secrets to making an inexpensive outfit look expensive.

First, she suggested aspiring fashionistas get their clothing bespoke — even if it’s a cheaper piece.

“Get pieces tailored,” she wrote in an Instagram story. “I tend to have most pants/jeans tailored a little.”

“Change the buttons so it doesn’t look so generic,” she advised.

She suggested to avoid loud, sparkly embellishments on cheaper items of clothing and accessories.

“Keep it simple,” she said. “Embellished stuff can look cheap if it isn’t high-end, where as simple classic pieces are harder to spot.

Her advice did not stop at clothing and outerwear — she advised on opting for quality undergarments as well.

“Great underwear will make your silhouette more streamlined and your outfit look more expensive,” she explained.

According to Luxe, always choose black over brown — especially for handbags.

“Black not brown,” she advised. “A brown bag can look tired and dingy where as a black one will always look classic and expensive.”

Finally, she told followers to invest in a wardrobe that is enduring.

“Invest in statement pieces rather than ‘timeless classics,’” she wrote.

“Attention-grabbing pieces that can’t be duped are way more valuable than an expensive white shirt you could probably find for less at ASOS and have tailored,” she added.

Mom admits daughter’s name is ‘controversial’ but won’t change it – despite setting her up for a lifetime of misery

WHEN an expecting mom posted about her baby daughter’s name, she was met with criticism and judgment for the bizarre choice.

Still, she stuck with the controversial choice, and hoped to give the word a “new meaning.”

GettyA mom’s baby name idea was slammed online for its questionable meaning[/caption]

A screenshot of the mom’s post in a private name forum was posted to NameNerdCircleJerk, a Reddit board dedicated to unique and bizarre baby names.

In the original post, the mom shares a truly one-of-a-kind name that could easily be mistaken for a more common moniker at first.

The name in question is Harlotte – only one letter off from “Charlotte,” but distinctly different.

The name is also very close to “harlot,” an archaic term for a prostitute, and the source of the controversy.

“I have wanted to name my daughter Harlotte for so long,” the mom admitted. “Ever since I first heard the word harlot, I’ve loved it.”

She wasn’t concerned about what the word “harlot” typically means. “I am able to remove the meaning of words and just hear the melody of them,” she said.

The mom also explained that she wanted to redefine the word, in some sense. “I also like the idea of taking charge of things and giving them new meanings.”

But the mom wasn’t certain about what her daughter would think when she got older: she wrote, “I just don’t know how she would feel with that name.”

Commenters on Reddit dogpiled on the mom, jokingly suggesting she give all her future daughters misogynistic names like “Slutte, Trolloppe, and Husseigh.”

“Ever since I saw the word Diarrhea, it just sounded so beautiful! I’ve wanted to name my child Dyareigha ever since,” another person mocked.

Quoting the mom, they added, “I’m just taking charge of the word and giving it a new meaning!”

“If it didn’t mean what it did, it sounds kinda nice,” a Reddit user agreed. “I have the same feelings towards Malaria.”

“I’m of the opinion if you have to ask people about a name that’s controversial then it probably best to not use it at all,” a reasonable commenter said.

“Have we considered… Charlotte?” another person asked. A few fellow commenters suggested using “Harlotte” as a nickname, but not a legal name.

But a nickname is out of the question, the mom made clear in her original post. “I don’t like anything similar like Harley,” she added.

And one commenter found a perfect solution that would allow the mom to use the name without saddling her daughter with its meaning.

“How about change your own name to Harlotte if you’re so obsessed with it,” they suggested.

Warped dad ‘married’ his own daughter, 21, after siblings competed to have sex with him

A WARPED dad illegally married his own daughter after the siblings competed to have sex with him.

Twisted Travis Fieldgrove, 42, admitted to romping then marrying his daughter Samantha Kersher in 2018.

The estranged pair first met when Samantha was just 17 after her mother revealed Fieldgrove was her father.

The perv dad was later convicted of illegally marrying his daughter and was recently released from prison.

Their romps took place in Adams County, Nebraska, USA, and neighbour Hall County, cops say – after Kershner got into a “jealous competition with her half sister”, according to court documents.

Police said: “This case relates to the two being involved in an intimate relationship beginning in September of 2018 in Grand Island, Nebraska, despite evidence that Fieldgrove is the paternal parent.

Ferne’s representative has been contacted for comment, while Sam’s representative had no comment.

Insiders say Sam has now blocked Ferne and this week unfollowed her on Instagram. 

The pair grew up together in Essex and later co-starred in The Only Way Is Essex – but Sam left in 2014 and Ferne quit two years later. 

Their friendship became strained in 2017 when Ferne launched her own reality show, Ferne McCann: First Time Mum, which documented her pregnancy and the birth of daughter Sunday, who she shares with ex Arthur Collins.

The launch of the programme came a few years after Sam launched The Baby Diaries, which was swiftly followed by The Mummy Diaries – and sources say Sam thought Ferne was “copying her”. 

At the time, Ferne said: “The reason, as far as I’m concerned, that she fell out with me is because I decided to take this show.
