Former Spurs manager and current pundit Harry Redknapp has told The Telegraph that he thinks Arsenal have little chance of beating Tottenham on Saturday.
This past weekend was a great one for Leicester and Spurs, but a bad one for Arsenal. Leicester saw Leonard Ulloa pop up with a winning goal in the dying seconds against Norwich City, whilst Tottenham came from 1-0 down to beat Swansea 2-1.
However, Arsenal served up a tepid, gutless performance at Old Trafford, as they were beaten 3-2 by a Manchester United side missing some of their big-name players, as teenager Marcus Rashford ran riot against the Gunners defence.
The results mean Leicester stay two points clear of Tottenham, but Arsenal are now three points adrift of Spurs and five behind Leicester, as their title hopes took a major dent at Old Trafford.
Now though, Arsenal will be looking towards Wednesday's game against Swansea City, but know that a huge North London derby against Tottenham is on the horizon, as the two sides meet at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.
Defeat against Spurs may rule Arsenal out of the title race, and former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has made a very confident prediction about the game.
Redknapp has told The Telegraph that he thinks Spurs could put the nail in Arsenal's coffin this weekend, and can't see any way that Arsene Wenger's side conjure up a positive result at White Hart Lane, suggesting that Spurs would be in 'great shape' if they can beat West Ham and Arsenal this week.
"Arsenal have got it all on now. If they don’t play better than that, they could end up back in fourth in a season which, without any doubt, has been their big chance," said Redknapp. "It is hard to put your finger on why they have struggled for consistency and Tottenham could very well put Arsenal out of the title race in Saturday’s derby. You couldn’t fancy Arsenal from what you have seen of them at Old Trafford. Not when the chips are down. I can’t see them getting a result at White Hart Lane and it is a massive week now as well for Tottenham."
"They play West Ham and Arsenal – which are two hard games - but they will be in great shape if they win those. Leicester City and Tottenham are now rightly the title favourites and this felt like a potentially pivotal weekend," he added.
