The upcoming North London derby is undoubtedly the most fascinating game in the Premier League this weekend. With both sides in top form, Ben Foster has deliberated over the matter and delivered his prediction for who will win.
In recent years, the battle between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal has been perhaps fiercer than ever, with both teams challenging for the top four together.
While the Lilywhites may have won that fight in the 2021/22 campaign, it was the Gunners who came out on top last year.
In fact, Mikel Arteta‘s side very nearly clinched the Premier League title last term, before being pipped by Manchester City. It was a far more miserable season for Spurs, however, who had issues on and off the pitch throughout.
With Ange Postecoglou now in charge, Tottenham appear revived and raring to go. An unbeaten start to the league campaign has Spurs in second place right now, but Arsenal are just behind on goal difference only.
Foster picks Spurs to win the North London Derby
The two teams go head to head at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon in a hotly anticipated early season test, and Ben Foster has shared his thoughts on the latest instalment of That’s Football.
After co-host Mark Goldbridge backed Arsenal to win, Foster said: “Alright, I’m going to go Spurs win then. This is so hard to call, by the way. This is going to be a good game, I cannot wait. I’m going to go Spurs win. I like it. Ange ball.”

To go to the Emirates and get anything from this game would be a huge result, to be honest. The Gunners will be buzzing after that win in the Champions League this week, and will have the home crowd right behind them.
Hopefully, we can use our expansive, high-energy style of play to take advantage of any tired legs and put them under pressure.
