Charlie Nicholas predicts where Arsenal and Tottenham will finish this season
Charlie Nicholas believes that Arsenal will finish above Tottenham in the Premier League this season
Charlie Nicholas believes that Arsenal will definitely finish above Tottenham in the Premier League this season.
The Gunners have been in solid form since the disappointment of their opening-weekend defeat at the hands of Liverpool back in August.
The north London side have not lost in the Premier League since that defeat and are currently three points behind leaders Chelsea after 13 games of the new season.
Tottenham, meanwhile, suffered their first defeat of the season when they were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday night.
Arsenal managed to pip their bitter local rivals to a second-placed finish on the final day of last season.
And former Arsenal star Nicholas feels that the Gunners are on course to finish above Tottenham once again.
Speaking in an interview with The Daily Mirror, Nicholas said: “They [Arsenal] have come through November – a month where they have struggled in the past – only three points off the top despite playing without real fluency. At least they are managing to draw games where they don’t play well.
“And I think they will finish above Tottenham again – in fact, the best four teams I’ve seen this season in the Premier League are the current top four, not necessarily in the same order.
“But they lost against Liverpool, they were poor against Manchester United, they only drew with Tottenham and they were brilliant against Chelsea, which means they have only beaten one of their major rivals at the top so far, which is a concern.”
Arsenal are currently gearing up for their trip to West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday night.
