ARSENAL VS TOTTENHAM: Ex-Arsenal star and sky sport pundit Paul Merson predicts the final result of Saturday’s North London Derby.
Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson is expecting is boyhood club to overpower Spurs in a tight contents that will be coming up at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The Sky Sport pundit is convinced that Mikel Arteta Arsenal’s team are in a better form as they get ready to face Tottenham in the North London Derby.
“The way they’re playing at the moment, I don’t see Tottenham being able to beat Arsenal. They did defeat Leicester by a 6-2 margin the other day, but the scoreline flattered them in my opinion.
“With Manchester City in the title race, both these teams should realistically aim for a top-four finish. Arsenal absolutely dismantled Brentford in their previous game, and their home advantage gives them the upper hand in this match.”
Paul Merson has made a 2-1 win in favour of Arsenal, which many can be seen as fair predictions.
With Arsenal hosting Spurs at Emirates Stadium, that should give the Gunner’s a slight advantage over the visitor.
Mikel Arteta need to be wary of Tottenham threat on the counter-attack to avoid the repeat of what happened in the 3-1 defeat to Manchester United.
