Ray Parlour, Arsenal legend turned TV Pundit, is looking forward to next weekend’s North London Derby, and although he knows that Spurs are in great form he still believes the Gunners can take all three points away from White Hart Lane.
He told SportLobster: “Who’s coming out on top in the North London derby? Be honest now. Tottenham are in great form. Eriksen and Kane have been in top form.
“Arsenal are also playing really well. There’s a great competition for places at the club. I honestly believe it will be a tough game but Arsenal will win. We’ve got a decent record at White Hart Lane. I would put money on Arsenal.”
This game is going to be a very hard game for neutrals to predict, while all us Arsenal fans KNOW we are going to win lol, because on form there is little to choose between them. Both clubs have only lost once in the last 7 EPL games and the Gunners are only two points above their rivals in the title race. But even though Spurs are at home, the bookies are making Arsenal favourites to win at 6/5, while the Spuds are a best-priced 5/2, which surprised me to be honest. I know we were awesome in the 2-0 win over Man City, but Spurs also demolished Chelsea 5-3 at home. I personally would be happy with a draw to sustain our lead in the table, and that can be backed at 11/4.

The Gunners are unbeaten in our last four PL games against Spurs, which may help explain the prices, but Tottenham defended like hell at the Emirates earlier this season and managed to leave with a point, despite Arsenal’s domination of the game. At home they will have to come at us to try and win the game, which may just play into our counter-attacking hands.
So I agree with Ray. Arsenal are going to mash those Spuds!
