Tottenham hold 'massive advantage' over Arsenal after 'incredible' Eric Dier reveal - Robinson

Tottenham have “a massive advantage” over Arsenal in the North London derby on Thursday, according to Paul Robinson.

The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested home advantage will count for a lot in “a game of this magnitude.”

Antonio Conte’s side welcome Arsenal to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday with four points separating the two sides in the table.

Speaking to Spurs TV (8 May), Eric Dier urged his supporters to create an “incredible” atmosphere on the night and predicted it would be “the best experienced” at their new stadium.

Robinson claimed the fixture is of “huge” importance but refused to label it as season-defining.

“It’s a massive advantage being at home in a game of this magnitude,” he told Football Insider.

“Is it a season-defining game? I’m not totally convinced that it is. If we were talking about Liverpool and Man City then we could presume that it is season-defining. But Spurs and Arsenal are so unpredictable you do not know what is coming.

“I was at the Arsenal game at the weekend and they struggled to beat a 10-man Leeds. It was not convincing by any stretch of the imagination. Spurs are exactly the same. They’re both too inconsistent.

“Listen, the north London derby is a huge game for both sides. But I wouldn’t put my house on both sides winning their two games after that.”
