Owen makes Spurs v Arsenal prediction ahead of derby

Michael Owen “can’t see anything other” than Tottenham beating Arsenal when they play each other in the north London derby on Sunday.

Tottenham are currently top of the Premier League table, while Arsenal are in 14th position, although a victory for the Gunners would move them within five points of their local rivals.

Spurs beat the Gunners 2-1 in their last meeting, with Son Heung-min and Toby Alderweireld on target, and Owen can see another victory for Jose Mourinho’s side this weekend.

“Arsenal’s performance has dipped in recent weeks,” Owen told Bet Victor.

“It’s been particularly noticeable that they’ve not had the same swagger at home as they’ve had in recent seasons.

“Spurs have been playing well. They’ve adapted to Jose Mourinho’s style of play and could be in with an outside chance of winning the league.

“Jose has set up to play on the counter a lot this season, and I think they could further benefit if he opened up and went at teams a bit more.

“Based on form I can’t see anything other than a Spurs win. They have talent throughout their team, and if they keep going at this rate, they could have a surprisingly big season.”
