Tottenham are preparing to host Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday, January 16. Spurs are currently 6th in the league table, while the Gunners are 5th with 2 points ahead of Antonio Conte's side. Conte's side suffered a 3-0 on aggregate defeat to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final and were eliminated from the tournament, meanwhile, Mikel Arteta's side played a goalless draw in the semi-final first leg against the Reds. Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he is running out of players because of illness and injury, so there is a chance this game might be called off. If it goes ahead, I am not expecting a classic. The way Tottenham went out of the Carabao Cup without much of a fight was disappointing, but they are still unbeaten in the league in eight games under Antonio Conte. Conte will want to keep that record, so being hard to beat will be the priority, but I have a feeling Spurs will nick all three points, even though Son Heung-min is still out injured.Lawrenson's prediction: 1-0.
