BBC football ‘pundit’ Mark Lawrenson has had his say on who he thinks will win the North London derby between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Last time out, Lawrenson correctly predicted that Tottenham would draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

The North London derby is always a massive, must-win game but this game has some extra importance as we could extend our gap to a seven point advantage over the Woolwich lot in sixth place.

However, we need to look upwards and close the gap on Liverpool and Chelsea.  It is critical that we qualify for Champions League football once more next season if we are to keep hold of our star players.

Lawro told BBC Sport Online: “Arsenal have made some very good attacking signings with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan but they have not strengthened defensively.

“Yes, the Gunners brushed Everton aside very easily last week, and they were great to watch.

“But Tottenham will be much tougher to break down and, at the same time, they can do some damage at the other end of the pitch too.

“I still think Arsenal can make a late run for the top four, but this is not a week where they close the gap.

“Lawro’s prediction: 2-0.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Can’t predict the score or the winner.
    But I can 100% predict Aubameyang will score.
    Dreamt it last night.
    From an Ozil pass.
    Put money on it ;)

  2. As a football fan all we can hope for is good exciting game. As a Spurs fan I naturally hope that our team
    wins but predicting football results is a mugs game . Even Man City who have bought this years Championship
    can be tripped up by a team such as Burnley. If If If is always the answer following the game.
    Tom’s crystal ball may or may not be accurate. Spurs will have done their homework on both of Arsenals
    new signings. Spurs still hold the mystery card with Lucas Moura. Could be the X Factor in favour of Tottenham. A speedster with immense skill and proven goalscoring ability.
