Stan Collymore has predicted Arsenal to come out as victors in Sunday afternoon’s north London derby.
The outspoken football pundit has predicted the Gunners to play out a convincing 2-0 victory against their fierce rivals at the Emirates Stadium.
It would mean Mauricio Pochettino’s side will lose their current unbeaten league status after 11 fixtures in England’s top flight.
Despite the unbeaten status Spurs are currently going through a poor spell of form in all competitions, as they go into their seventh fixture without a win.
By contrast, Arsenal are currently in good form with 10 wins from 11 matches and Collymore has predicted their good form to continue on his personal Twitter account with a win on Sunday.
Only three places and three points separate the two London rivals going into the clash with Arsenal in second on 23 points and Tottenham in fifth place on 20 points.
The two sides last met in March, which saw the pair share the spoils in a 2-2 draw with goals from Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane for Tottenham, while Aaron Ramsey and Francis Coquelin scored for Arsenal.
However, Spurs’ two scorers on that day have only just returned to full time training following long-term injuries and it remains to be seen if either star will feature on Sunday.
