Paul Gascoigne is backing Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United to beat Arsenal to a top-four finish this season.

Arsenal have made a promising start to the Premier League season following two successive victories over Burnley and Newcastle United before a 3-1 loss to leaders Liverpool FC last weekend.

Unai Emery’s men will be looking to make an immediate return to winning ways by beating Tottenham in the north London derby at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs have made an unconvincing start to their top-four challenge following a disappointing return of four points from their opening three Premier League games.

Tottenham suffered a surprise 1-0 loss to Newcastle United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last weekend to collect a mere four points from their opening three games.

However, former Spurs midfielder Gascoigne believes Tottenham will finish ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League this term.

“Man City have got players to replace every position on the field. Tottenham don’t. Mauricio Pochettino needs to buy again in the next window and get a couple of players in,” Gascoigne told the Manchester Evening News.

“Liverpool are looking strong as well but I cannot see anyone stopping Man City. They are just going to keep on buying and it’s quite scary.

“I think it will be Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United [in the top four]. I think Arsenal are playing good football as well.”

Arsenal signed Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba, Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney and David Luiz in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham added Jack Clarke, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani los Celso to their squad in the summer.

Spurs lost 2-0 to Liverpool FC in the Champions League final in Madrid last season.

Arsenal suffered a 4-1 defeat by Chelsea FC in the Europa League showpiece in Baku last term.
