Tottenham vs Arsenal – Match Predictions:
If Arsenal are without Sanchez and Spurs bring their A game with Erikson, Kane and Chadli causing havoc in Arsenal defence I can see Arsenal’s good run of form coming to an end. Arsenal do have their star man back with Mesut Ozil playing superbly against Villa the other week and his presense will help Arsenal not only exploit any space spurs were to offer by defending higher up the pitch but also that killer pass which can split open the defense.
Spurs are in good form and they look the most dangeroud side going forward with Harry Kane leading the line I can see them getting a couple of goals against Arsenal and that might be enough to seal a narrow 2-1 victory at the lane. What are your thoughts about the game ?
