Jamie Carragher makes North London derby prediction

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are gearing up to host an in-form Arsenal side this weekend in what promises to be a thrilling and pivotal contest for both teams.

Arsenal find themselves entangled in a tight title race with Manchester City, currently sitting atop the table with 77 points, just one point ahead of second-placed Manchester City, who possess a game in hand. Every point is crucial for the Gunners as they aim to maintain their lead and clinch the title.

Similarly, Tottenham are battling for the coveted fourth spot, trailing fourth-placed Aston Villa by six points but with two games in hand. With aspirations of securing a Champions League berth, Spurs cannot afford to drop any points in their pursuit.

As both teams enter the match hungry for victory, spectators can expect an intense and fiercely contested encounter at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Speaking on Stick to Football, Jamie Carragher weighed in on the upcoming North London Derby, offering his prediction for the outcome.

The Sky Sports pundit acknowledged Tottenham’s prolonged break from competitive action but ultimately forecasted a narrow 2-1 victory for Arsenal.

He said:

“Tottenham haven’t played for a long time. Have Tottenham not played for two weeks or 10 days or something? I’m going 2-1 Arsenal,”

TBH Says

There is no doubt that Arsenal will be considered favourites to win. They will be entering the game brimming with confidence following a resounding 5-0 victory over London rivals Chelsea earlier in the week,

In contrast, Tottenham suffered a demoralising 4-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle in their last outing. Moreover, Spurs will be without their star defender Destiny Udogie, who confirmed earlier in the week that he will miss the remainder of the season due to injury, and could potentially be without Pedro Porro as well who is fighting to regain fitness in time.

If Ange manages to pull off a win under the circumstances, it could prove to be massive boost for our hopes for a top 4 finish.
