Darren Anderton predicts the winner of Arsenal v Tottenham
Darren Anderton is expecting to see Tottenham beat Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday
Darren Anderton is backing Tottenham to beat Arsenal in Saturday’s crunch north London derby clash at The Emirates.
The Lilywhites head into the game having made a strong start to the Premier League season, with Mauricio Pochecttino’s men currently third in the table and eight points behind leaders Manchester City after 11 games.
Spurs were 1-0 winners over Crystal Palace before the international break and will fancy their chances against an Arsenal side who have struggled to find consistent form in recent weeks.
Indeed, Arsenal were beaten 3-1 before the international break by Manchester City to leave them 12 points behind the leaders and with it all to do in the title race.
And former Spurs star Anderton is backing the Lilywhites to claim all three points at The Emirates this weekend.
Speaking in an interview with BetSafe, Anderton said: “I think Spurs will win.
“I think the way they’re playing at the moment and the fact that a few of their key players have had a little break the last couple of weeks, they’ll be firing on all cylinders.
“I think it will be an entertaining game, and the way that Spurs are playing at the moment will be too much for Arsenal.”
Arsenal have not won the Premier League since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
The north London side won the FA Cup last season after finishing in fifth place in the Premier League table, as they missed out on Champions League qualification.
Tottenham, meanwhile, finished as runners-up to Chelsea in the Premier League table after being the Blues’ closest challengers last season.
