Arsenal hero Ray Parlour predicts Gunners result v Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Pre Season WHL

Ray Parlour sees an Arsenal win at White Hart Lane against rivals Tottenham this coming weekend.

Amid the chaos of transfer deadline day, former Arsenal star Ray Parlour took time out to answer questions from fans,

With a huge North London derby taking place this weekend, he was quizzed on the big match between Spurs and the Gunners.

As an ex-Arsenal man he was reluctant to back away from Arsene Wenger's team, but admitted it was not an easy contest ahead of them.

He told SportLobster: "Who's coming out on top in the North London derby? Be honest now. Tottenham are in great form. Eriksen and Kane have been in top form.

"Arsenal are also playing really well. There's a great competition for places at the club. I honestly believe it will be a tough game but Arsenal will win. We've got a decent record at White Hart Lane. I would put money on Arsenal."

The match between the two at The Emirates earlier in the season ended 1-1, and the two sides are locked in a battle once again for the Champions League places.

Arsenal currently occupy the fifth placed position, level on points with Southampton, two ahead of Spurs, who can overtake their rivals with a victory.

Both teams have lost only two of their last 10 Premier League games, and are both progressing well in cup competitions.

This game will not decide the bragging rights for each club, final league position and trophies won will determine that, but if one side can get a win, rather than it ending level, it can give them a considerable confidence boost heading into a crucial phase of the season.
