Harry Redknapp has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 15th November, that he believes Tottenham Hotspur will beat Arsenal at the weekend.

Spurs are set to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in Saturday’s early kick off.

If Tottenham can win the fixture they will go seven points clear of their North London rivals.

And Redknapp believes that Tottenham have a wonderful opportunity to assert their authority over their local rivals.

“Spurs are in great form,” Redknapp said. “They’ve been playing very well and they’ll have Alli and Kane fit for the weekend. That hat-trick for Eriksen has elevated him to another level.

Tottenham finished above Arsenal last season, and have made a far more impressive start to this campaign than Arsene Wenger’s men.

If Spurs do win at the Emirates it will ramp up the pressure on Wenger even further, as Arsenal could slip down to seventh place in the Premier League table.
