Stan Collymore predicts Tottenham v Arsenal clash
By Dominic Toner
Stan Collymore has predicted Tottenham to draw 2-2 in their Premier League match against Arsenal on Sunday.
Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and need a positive result in their pursuit of the title.
It will also be the final north London derby at Spurs’ prestigious ground before their move and their fans will be desperate for a big send off.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are four points adrift of leaders Chelsea in the title race and could end the weekend just a point behind if results go their way.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are sixth-placed in the table and need a victory to keep their top-four aspirations alive.

The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the first meeting this campaign, with Harry Kane’s penalty cancelling out a Kevin Wimmer own goal.
Spurs go into the weekend after winning eight consecutive league games, but recently suffered a 4-2 defeat to Chelsea in an FA Cup semi-final.
In contrast, Arsenal managed to win their cup semi-final over Manchester City and have won back-to-back games in the Premier League.
Spurs have Mousa Dembele as an injury doubt ahead of the derby match, while Laurent Koscielny is also facing a battle to be involved in the starting XI.
