Former West Ham United and Leicester City striker Tony Cottee predicted on the Sky Sports Now show on Sky Sports News HQ on Monday morning (broadcast from 10am, April 4) that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Manchester United this coming weekend.
Tottenham will take on United at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday evening.
League leaders Leicester will face Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon, and Cottee believes that the Foxes will drop points.
The former England international has also backed West Ham to pick up all three points against Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday afternoon.
“I think it will be a tough game at Sunderland, Leicester might draw that one and I expect West Ham to beat Arsenal,” said Cottee on the Sky Sports Now show on Sky Sports News HQ on Monday morning (broadcast from 10am, April 4). “I think it’s a really tough game for them. I think Spurs will beat Man United.”
West Ham United v Arsenal
Arsenal need to win the match against West Ham in order to maintain their slim chances of winning the Premier League title this season.
The Hammers are aiming to finish in the top four, and playing at home will be an advantage for them in the London derby.
Slaven Bilic’s side could pick up all three points from this match, but the players need to be on top of their game.
One should not be surprised if Arsenal eke out a narrow victory at the Boleyn Ground.
Sunderland v Leicester City
Leicester are flying high in the Premier League, and it is hard to see the Foxes lose against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
An early goal for the Black Cats could make it tricky for Claudio Ranieri’s side, but they do have enough quality to stage a successful comeback.
Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United
United are not playing well, but they are still grinding out results and are in the hunt for a top-four finish.
If United score the first goal at White Hart Lane, then it will become tough for Spurs, but the North London outfit are in better form and should be able to pick up all three points from this encounter.
