Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen and former Arsenal forward, Charlie Nicholas have predicted the winner of today’s Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and the Gunners.
Tottenham head to the match after playing a goalless draw with Bournemouth in the previous game, while Arsenal played a 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “This north London derby is always a feisty affair with seven penalties in the last seven Premier League meetings between the two.
“However, without the usual fervent fans, I expect this to be a much tamer encounter, although I do expect goals.
“I’m going for a closely fought 2-1 win for Jose Mourinho’s men.”
Also reacting, Nicholas wrote in his column for Sky Sports: “This is a game where they will both look at each other and realise they have become average sides.
