“Spurs are the better team” Giggs talks North London Derby and title race


Tottenham may be better than Arsenal now but they can’t match Manchester Utd says former United winger Ryan Giggs

Giggs believes Tottenham will stamp their authority over north London rivals Arsenal in the coming years but the Welshman reckons Spurs still trail the Manchester giants as the Premier League’s top clubs.

The article adds of course how We go head-to-head with the gooners on Saturday at the Emirates on with Mauricio Pochettino’s men currently level on points with United.

Ourselves and the Red Devils are currently eight points behind City at the top of the table and Giggs says Tottenham are capable of claiming consistent victories over Arsenal and become the dominant force in the north of the capital.

Speaking on Sky Sports Giggs said: “The north London derby always tends to be an entertaining affair, with a lot of goals and a lot of talented players, and I think it has been more interesting over recent years with the teams being evenly matched.

“Form often goes out of the window with derbies but Arsenal have tended to dominate, so Tottenham are naturally relishing getting some revenge.

Giggs added “Spurs are the better team right now but to really have the upper hand they have to do it consistently over the next few years, although with the talented young squad they have I don’t see why that won’t be the case.”

The article adds however that Giggs is confident Spurs will come up short in the title race with United and City leading the way.

He added: “I still see Manchester United as the main title rivals for City this season, with Jose Mourinho’s record being key, while he should have Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to come back when you really need those big-game players to make an impact.

Giggs continued: “Tottenham have also been impressive and I had thought they would struggle going for the title with the Wembley and playing in the Champions League but they’ve gotten over it really well, so I’d have them third in the mix.”

So the question is this, is he right? City have proved to be consistently strong this year and it would take a major downturn in form to see them caught, however with us tied on points with United its certainly not a two horse race just yet.
