Sol Campbell predicts result of Tottenham v Arsenal

Sol Campbell foresees an Arsenal win against rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Arguably the most controversial player in the history of the North London rivalry has given his view on Saturday's match.

Sol Campbell quit Tottenham to sign with Arsenal on a free transfer in 2001, becoming a hate figure for fans of the club.

The ex-England defender has been speaking to London24 and believes the Gunners will walk away with a win, questioning if Spurs will be able to recover.

He said: "There are only two points separating them so it’s a chance for both clubs to really steal a march on each other. If Arsenal get five clear can Spurs come back? Looking at the run-in, I’m not sure.

"Going to White Hart Lane is tough, but Arsenal have the momentum and, with players coming back I can see a narrow away win."

To drop five points behind Arsenal would be a tough blow for Spurs, especially with key Premier League clashes upcoming against West Ham and Liverpool later this month.

A win however would sit them up nicely, and as Arsenal fans would be only too happy to point out from their own perspective, larger point gaps at this stage of the season have previously been overhauled.

Campbell nowadays is eyeing a move into politics, telling The Times this month he even aspired to be Mayor of London.

His prediction for the weekend is however far from diplomatic where his first former team are involved.
