Tottenham Hotspur will face Manchester City, while Arsenal will take on Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

Former Celtic striker John Hartson said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (February 12) that Tottenham Hotspur fans would want Arsenal to win this weekend.

Tottenham will face Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday evening. Also on Sunday, Arsenal will take on Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium in the league.

All four sides are in the running for the Premier League title, and former Arsenal striker Hartson believes that Spurs fans would want the Gunners to win.

“It’s the only time really that if you are a Spurs fan, you are really wanting Arsenal to win,” said the former West Ham United man on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (February 12).

It is an interesting comment from Hartson, as Arsenal and Tottenham are fierce North London rivals.

However, on Sunday, Spurs fans will probably want the Gunners to win, as that will restrict league leaders Leicester from extending their league further.

Tottenham and Arsenal are level on 48 points, five points behind Leicester, while City are a point behind them in fourth.
