Only one result stopped us from getting all four Premier League predictions correct last night, with just Everton's failure to beat relegated… yes, relegated Watford, letting us down.
That's done now and tonight we turn our attention to the North London Derby between Spurs and Arsenal.
The equations are pretty simple really.
A win for Spurs isn't essential from a mathematical point of view. But it will be extremely difficult to catch Arsenal if they don't win tonight.
A draw will leave Spurs 4 points behind the Gunners with only two fixtures each remaining. And it would be hard to see the Gunners blowing it from that position.
A win for Arsenal, and it's all over for Spurs and the Top 4. They w be 7 points behind with only 6 left to play for.
While a win for Spurs will still leave them 1 point behind Arsenal, so relying on the Gunners to make a mistake.
Spurs can't lose tonight, and whatever the other outcomes, it's not in the hands of Antonio Conte's team.
Spurs vs Arsenal Match Prediction - Thursday 7.45pm
With home advantage, Spurs are the bookmakers favourites. The odds are suggesting a tight match, and I have to agree, I think it will be.
How do Arsenal approach this fixture though? That is a key question.
Their remaining fixtures are Newcastle (A) and Everton (H). There's every chance points could get dropped at St James Park, o do the Gunners try and get the job done tonight?
A quick look at Spurs' remaining fixtures makes it look more like they might be the side happier to avoid defeat tonight.
Their two remaining fixtures are:-
- Burnley (H)
- Norwich (A)
It's pretty difficult to see Spurs not get 6 points from those two matches.
Trying to be too smart tactically can sometimes backfire. I think both teams would be better suited to just playing their natural games tonight.
If that happens, I don't see Arsenal winning.
For me, this match is a tight call between a Spurs win and the draw.
I'm going for a home win.
