Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Tottenham and Arsenal.

The Spurs are currently sitting in 6th place in the Premier League table, while the Gunners are 5th with 35 points.

The two sides will be hoping to have a successful match, however, Merson backs Mikel Arteta’s team to celebrate a win over the rivals.

“This is a massive game, I’ve played in enough of these to know that. I think the tide has changed a little bit this season, so I fancy Arsenal to win this one,” the pundit said (via Metro UK).

“They are a better team than Tottenham at the moment and Son Heung-Min’s absence is a huge problem for Antonio Conte.

“Spurs have a few games in hand and if they manage to win them, they could break into the top four and cause a bit of trouble for Arsenal.

“They had the upper hand in this fixture a couple of years ago, but going by what I’ve seen in recent weeks, I’d be shocked if Arsenal lost.”
