Gunners legend Martin Keown gives his Premier League prediction — Arsenal vs Tottenham

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

The Gunners find themselves in the rare scenario of trailing their bitter rivals, with last season proving the first time in 22 years that Spurs finished above their neighbours in the Premier League.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that his side are not underdogs heading into their North London derby with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. So David Unsworth, who was initially given four games to prove himself and won just one - against Watford before the international break - will somehow still be in the dug-out at Selhurst Park.

Unless the wheels fall off of Pep Guardiola's record-making team - and there have been no signs of this - the chasing pack lives with the knowledge that anything other than a victory is failure.

The Match Zone special will be re-run at 9pm on Thursday on Sky Sports Premier League, as well as 6pm, 9pm and midnight on Friday and 7.30am and 9.30am on Saturday, as well as On Demand.

"I think it's going to be a fascinating game which will be won and lost in midfield".

'The comparison will be between the two performances on Saturday and we have a good opportunity to show we are strongest, so let's do it'.

Lacazette has scored six goals in his debut campaign in England, yet has only once played a full 90 minutes for the club.

Higginbotham highlights Dembele's threat when carrying the ball forward and also focuses on Winks' ability to pick passes to Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane from deep. When the two last met in April Arsenal were essentially condemned to finishing below Spurs and also out of the Champions League when Dele Alli and Harry Kane scored in a deserved 2-0 home win.

Speaking ahead of Wenger's 43rd North London derby in the Premier League, Pochettino described him as "my enemy" and "my colleague" and added at a news conference: "What he is doing at Arsenal and as a manager, I would like to be like him one day: 20 years at Tottenham! But the last thing you want a club to be is in limbo".

Arsenal all-time top scorer had to sit there and admit: "You made it sound like it was easy and that's why you are who you are, I guess".

Tottenham and Arsenal missed their chance when Leicester came from nowhere to win the title and such an opportunity is unlikely to arise again. Good luck to you and your team. I am thinking, 'how can I slow down to then go again and get one v one with Van Dijk?
