Verdict: England Win
Best Odds: 11/10
On Tuesday night, Colombia and England go head-to-head for a place in the last 16 of the World Cup. Colombia made the last eight last time out, but the Three Lions have not played in the World Cup quarter-final since 2006. It is a massive game for both teams.
Colombia recovered from a defeat in their opening group games to defeat Poland and Senegal top Group H. The highly-rated South American team have been on a run of unconvincing form of late, as they failed to win any of their three warm-up games heading into Russia 2018. .......Read more here.....

Verdict: England win
Best Odds: 1/4
This game in Group G could decide these two teams’ fates, as a win for the Three Lions could see them qualify for the knockout stages, while a defeat for Panama would see Hernan Gomez’s side exit the competition.
England managed to snatch a 2-1 win against Tunisia, courtesy of a stoppage-time goal from Tottenham striker Harry Kane. The effort was his second of the game after opening the scoring in the first half. The England captain has now scored ten times in his last eight international appearances. The striker is no doubt eying up the World Cup Golden Boot. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal returned to type on Saturday afternoon, suffering a 1-0 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby.
The Gunners kept the home side relatively quiet at Wembley in the first half of Saturday’s game. However, in the second half, Mauricio Pochettino’s side could have added to their one-goal lead.
Arsene Wenger’s side did have some limited chances in the second period. However, it would be a stretch to say that Arsenal deserved anything out of the game.
Big attacking players failed to turn up .......Read more here.....

On Saturday afternoon, Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game in the north London derby, in a defeat that could prove very costly to Arsenal’s Champions League hopes.
The first real threat on home goal came on nine minutes, as Shkodran Mustafi inadvertently prodded the ball towards his own goal ahead of Harry Kane, only for Petr Cech to save and put the ball out for a corner kick. Tottenham’s Eric Dier headed well wide of goal on 14 minutes from a corner kick. .......Read more here.....

It’s last been in 2014 that Arsenal managed to beat their north London rivals away.
The last win over the neighbours was recorded at White Hart Lane and Gunners now have a fine chance of ending the run at the national stadium which has thus far been a fortunate ground for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Arsenal won their last nine matches at Wembley and are most certainly looking to make it a perfect ten.
Gunners head over to lock horns with fifth-placed Tottenham high on confidence following a morale-boosting 5-1 win over Everton last time out, which saw the January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang open his account for his new club. .......Read more here.....

On Saturday lunchtime, Tottenham host Arsenal at Wembley in a crucial north London derby.
The home side are fifth in the table. However, they are just a point behind fourth-place Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot. Mauricio Pochettino’s side drew 2-2 at Liverpool last time out. However, they needed a stoppage-time penalty kick from striker Harry Kane to rescue anything from the game.
The draw means that the home side are now undefeated in their last seven Premier League outings, although three of their last five league games have finished in draws. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a superb display to defeat Tottenham 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in the north London derby, as goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez gave the Gunners victory on Saturday afternoon.
Arsenal had the first attempt on goal on five minutes. Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez combined well, before the former fired over the bar.
Tottenham hit back soon afterwards, as Petr Cech produced a comfortable save from England striker Harry Kane. The visitors threatened goal again on 16 minutes, but Laurent Koscielny was on hand to stop Dele Alli after the midfielder had taken on Mustafi. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal have come in for some strong criticism in recent years. Criticisms of the Gunners include that they are too soft and need more bottle.
However, for all the criticism aimed at Arsenal, one positive still remains for the Gunners, that is their home form in the Premier League. That is highly encouraging for Arsenal fans, especially with the north London derby against Tottenham this weekend.
Very strong at the Emirates Stadium
Arsenal have won their last ten home games in the English top-flight, while also finding the net at least twice in their last eight games on home soil. That is an impressive home record for any team. Even Premier League leaders Manchester City cannot match that record. .......Read more here.....
