English Premiership

Spurs backed to shoot Gunners!

Cape Town - Tottenham still in with an outside Premiership title chance, Arsenal fighting desperately to ensure Champions League status ... Sunday's north London derby has all the ingredients on paper for a cracker.

The Sport24 tipsters vote five-strong in favour of a Spurs win at White Hart Lane, although two others envisage a stalemate.

Should it end with a point apiece, it would emulate last season’s corresponding result, when the Gunners clawed back with 10 men to earn a 2-2 outcome.

Each round of the 2016/17 Premiership campaign, a group of our staff has a crack at predicting the results - do the exercise yourself, if you like, and see how you compare afterwards.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial; he swears the Championship is more competitive), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Maano Nekhavhambe and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct scoreline, and one for right result.
