Tim Sherwood: It's Arsenal's turn to do this against Tottenham
By Amir Mir
Tim Sherwood believes that it is Arsenal’s turn to spoil Tottenham’s party ahead of their clash on Sunday afternoon at White Hart Lane.
For the first time in many years, Spurs find themselves chasing the Premier League title while their rivals are struggling to reach the top four.
Usually, the roles are reversed, but after another stellar season, Mauricio Pochettinio is on the verge of helping his team finish above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years.
This can be confirmed at the weekend if Tottenham can secure a much-needed three points, which will also help them in the title race.
This is what Sherwood had to say about the match as the two teams set to battle it out in north London.

“That is going to be a tight affair,” said Sherwood as posted by a Football YouTube channel. “I just think it’s Arsenal turn to spoil the party.
At this moment in time, Spurs are four points behind leaders Chelsea in the table as they travel to Goodison Park to play Everton in the early kick-off on Sunday.
A win for Arsene Wenger’s side could all but end their rivals’ chances of trying to catch Chelsea in the table.
Added to that, Pochettino’s team can inflict further misery on the Gunners, who are four points outside of the Champions League places.
During the reverse fixture in November, both teams had to settle for a point, with Harry Kane equalising from the spot in the second-half.
