Jermain Defoe believes Tottenham still have the edge over Arsenal in the race for fourth since the Lilywhites will face the Gunners at home.

Arsenal preserved their two-point lead over their North London rivals after both teams won their respective matches against Leicester and West Ham United on Sunday.

Antonio Conte’s men now have a tough trip to Anfield coming up next week and they will be hoping to get a result to keep pace with Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Graeme Souness questioned whether a beating at the hands of the Reds would dent Spurs’ confidence heading into the North London derby the subsequent week.

Watch what Souness and Defoe, along with Jamie Redknapp and Alan Smith told Sky Sports about the race for fourth place:

Even if Spurs lose at Anfield and Arsenal beat Leeds, the race still will not be over as we can once again narrow the Gunners’ lead down to two points if we beat them in the North London derby. So, I see this race potentially going down to the final game of the season but Arsenal are the favourites at the moment.
