BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that the North London derby will end as a draw.

Arsenal travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday to face a struggling Tottenham side, our latest defeat at the hands of Benfica has left a lot of fans wondering what exactly is going on at our club.

Lawro told BBC Sport Online: “If Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood wanted to give his players a dressing down, he probably should have done it in the dressing room. That is where you name names.

“You do it behind closed doors and you don’t need to tell the media. It gets out eventually but it is not the manager’s job to put it out there.

“I think Sherwood spoke outin the way he did after his side were beaten by Chelsea because we are coming to the end of the season and he is feeling the pressure.

“I am not surprised, because more and more in the papers I am reading it could be Louis van Gaal or somebody else taking over in the summer and Sherwood will be reading that too.

“Sherwood has done a good job, and is doing everything he possibly can, but it might not be enough for him to stay in charge. It means that, yet again, there is uncertainty around White Hart Lane.

“Arsenal are out of Europe now, which is not a surprise because of what happened in the first leg against Bayern Munich.

“The Gunners had a tough game in Germany but Spurs played in the Europa League on Thursday so that should even it out.

“Lawro’s prediction: 1-1

  1. Cheer up guys, it’s not all lost! Spurs will still qualify for Champions League (4th spot) if all the remaining games are won. I’ve got a sense that Spurs against Arsenal on Sunday will win by 2-0.
