Sky Sports pundit and former West Ham defender Tony Gale has predicted Tottenham to compile more misery on fierce rivals Arsenal when the two meet on Sunday.
The north London rivals are currently preparing for Wednesday night matches against Crystal Palace and Leicester respectively.
Both teams still have a lot to play for with Spurs looking to keep the pace with Chelsea at the top, while the Gunners are looking to make their way back into the top six.
However, with the north London derby also in sight many have turned their attentions to the Sunday meeting at White Hart Lane.
One of those was Gale, who has stated that he can see Tottenham pouring more misery on their rivals with a victory at this late stage of the season on Monday.
“For Arsene Wenger tonight they’ve got to win this game,” started Gale speaking on Sky Sports News’ Premier League Daily show on Wednesday morning regarding Arsenal’s match against Leicester.
“They’ve got to get seriously back in that zone and winning games. As Alex (McLeish) said, probably all seven games. Just go on a run and bash.
“They’ve done that for the past three or four seasons and ended up getting into the top four.
“I think that may not even be enough this time around and I suspect they won’t win all seven games anyway as I think Spurs will beat them at the weekend.”
Tottenham last finished above Arsenal in 1995 and they were close to beating that run at the end of the last campaign before a horrendous collapse in the final fixtures.
However, with Spurs now 14 points above the Gunners with 21 still available to Wenger’s side it looks like it would have to take an even worse collapse this time around.
Tottenham do still have difficult fixtures against Manchester United and league champions Leicester before the end of the season, while Arsenal will also face United alongside a final day meeting with Everton before the campaign’s end.
In other Tottenham news, Alex McLeish believes Spurs will be powerless in deciding whether this star stays at the club or not.
