Ex-Tottenham man not convinced the NLD will determine fourth spot

Paul Robinson believes the consistency of Arsenal and Tottenham between now and the end of the season will play a bigger role in determining their top-four destiny than the NLD.

Both clubs are fighting for the last spot in the top four and will face each other in one of their remaining games of the season.

Arsenal is currently fourth on the league table after returning to form in their recent matches against Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham.

Spurs have faltered a little, but just two points separate both clubs.

The last North London Derby of the season would be played at the Tottenham Stadium on the 12th of May.

That game will be huge, but former Spurs number one, Robinson believes it is their form in the other fixtures that are important.

He tells Football Insider: “The north London derby will have a huge say on who finishes in fourth.

“It is about which team can get on a consistent run. Arsenal have the momentum at the moment. That game is vital but I wouldn’t say it is season-defining at this stage.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

A draw in that game would be enough if we win our other matches and that is why it is not the most important game of the season.

We need to keep getting the wins on the board and our next opponents would be relegation-threatened Leeds United.

  1. This life don’t end in retiring plans it all come to an end in unfortunate ways…..no such thing as positive thinking when you locked in you feel like a maze…..often lose faith and forget to pray…..you don’t wanna land on the wing with the guys,why? Cos they might melt ur face.

    1. @ Fk. I agree its often like that. Billionaire owners and millionaire players who win even when they lose. The club promises glory, incredible football and the title every season but the team is always “unlucky”. Our season for big trophies is always next season. Just one more window two more players and voila the PL/ CL double is ours. Next season of course 🙂

  2. Liverpool will beat Spurs, we should beat Leeds giving us a five-point lead, so Spurs will have to come out and attack when we play them, the pressure will be on them, losing to us will end their hopes and give us St Tottering Day.The it’s Newcastle away and Everton last game of the season, we get the fourth spot, and there will be more investment as we will need it. Our Squad is too thim to compete in the CL and PL

  3. No the NLD will not decide the top four.

    Well am talking it into been, we will be five points clear by May the 12th.

    So it will be consistency that determine fourth spot
