Former Scotland international Alan Brazil has said he expects Tottenham to come out fighting against Arsenal on Saturday but is predicting a draw in the north London derby.
The two clubs return from the international break with one of the biggest matches of the season, with bragging rights and some much needed points at stake at the Emirates Stadium.
Spurs come into the clash looking to extend their run of six league matches without defeat against their fierce rivals, with Arsenal’s last win coming back in September 2015, when an early goal from Tomas Rosicky secured the three points for the Gunners.
The last match between the two sides ended in victory for Tottenham, Dele Alli and Harry Kane netting on the way to a 2-0 win, but Brazil says he is predicting that the points will be shared, despite expecting a positive performance from Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT (13/11, 09:20), he said: “I fancy a draw to be honest.
“You know Tottenham are going to roll their sleeves up and have a go at the Emirates.”
Spurs are currently sitting third in the Premier League table, four points ahead of Arsenal in sixth, level with second placed Manchester United but eight points adrift of league leaders Manchester City.
They come into the derby clash off the back of a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Wembley prior to the international break, while the Gunners were convincingly seen off by Pep Guardiola’s City side.
