Tottenham vs Arsenal-Predictions, Lineups & More

Tottenham vs Arsenal preview

Arsenal are flying high in the Premier League as they have established a five-point lead over second-placed Manchester City. However, the title race is far from over, as City and the new big guys Newcastle United are waiting for any error from the Gunners to exploit. Newcastle have already made a big dent in Arsenal’s title hopes by holding them for a goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium.
