Tottenham Hotspur will look to snap its two-match losing streak in the Premier League following back-to-back 3-0 losses to Crystal Palace and Chelsea. Nuno Espírito Santo’s squad will face another London rival this upcoming weekend in the North London derby against Arsenal.
However, one person believes Tottenham’s winless drought will continue against Arsenal. The Gunners legend Paul Merson declares there is “no way” his former club will lose the match while speaking to talkSPORT (via Express).
“I don’t see Arsenal losing the game. There is a lot of pressure now on Tottenham. The game (against Chelsea), in the end, it was a bit like watching an under-10’s team playing against a man’s team. It was shocking.”
Arsenal is off to a slow start as they’re in 13th place with six points. They have won their last two fixtures following three straight defeats to open the Premier League season, so they’ll be looking to carry that momentum against Tottenham.
Tottenham will look to stop their two-losing streak as they look to get back on track to finish in the top four. Nonetheless, a loss to Arsenal would open the door to more criticism, especially if they lose as they did to Crystal Palace and Chelsea.
