Chris Waddle states prediction for Tottenham v Arsenal

Chris Waddle is backing Tottenham Hotspur to beat Arsenal in Saturday's north London derby

Chris Waddle is tipping Tottenham Hotspur to beat Arsenal in the north London derby on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs are in second place and three points ahead of Arsenal after a dramatic weekend in the Premier League.

Tottenham came from 1-0 down to beat Swansea City 2-1 at White Hart Lane courtesy of goals from Nacer Chadli and Danny Rose.

Arsenal, meanwhile, suffered a 3-2 defeat by a weakened Manchester United side to extend their winless run to three games in all competitions.

Former England and Tottenham midfielder Waddle states his prediction for Saturday’s north London derby at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham have won their last six Premier League games ahead of Wednesday night’s derby against West Ham United at Upton Park.

The north London side are two points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City following Sunday’s 2-1 win against the Swans.
