Robbie Savage predicts Tottenham v Arsenal showdown
By Dominic Toner
Robbie Savage has predicted Tottenham to beat Arsenal in their crucial Premier League fixture on Sunday.
Spurs host the Gunners at White Hart Lane and it will be the last ever north London derby at the prestigious ground, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side making a temporary move to Wembley next season.
The two rivals need maximum points for their respective league ambitions and it is set to be a fiery encounter.
Spurs are competing for the title and are four points adrift of leaders Chelsea, while Arsenal are trying to force their way into the top-four positions.
Savage has tipped a 2-1 victory for the home side and feels Spurs will continue with their title hunt, as cited by William Hill’s official Twitter account.

The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the first meeting this season as Harry Kane’s penalty earned a point at the Emirates Stadium.
Spurs will be favourites to win at the weekend as their home form has been particularly strong this campaign.
Pochettino’s side have also won their last eight consecutive games in the league and are the in-form team in the division.
Spurs could end Sunday just a point behind table toppers Chelsea if results go their way, with Antonio Conte’s side facing Everton away at 2:05.
Spurs then kick-off their match at 4:30 against Arsenal and may be given a huge motivation to win.
