Jamie Carragher backs Arsenal to beat Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur later this afternoon at the Emirates Stadium.

Jamie Carragher has predicted on Sky Sports' programme Soccer AM that Arsenal will beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in the North London Derby.

The former Liverpool defender was asked for his prediction at the end of Soccer AM, and he revealed that he felt Arsenal would edge the contest.

If Carragher is correct and Arsenal do grab the three points, it will strengthen their title-challenge, as they have made such an excellent start to the season.

Arsenal are currently level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table, and they appear to be one of the Premier League’s most talented teams.

It has been a long time since Arsenal mounted a sustained title-challenge, but the initial signs have shown that they could go the distance this time around.

Beating Spurs has proven to be a tough test for any team this season though, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side in excellent form.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 10 league matches, and it means that this afternoon’s derby match is set to be a very intriguing match.
