I’d put money on it – Gary Neville chooses between Arsenal, Tottenham for fourth spot

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has said he would put money on Tottenham Hotspur taking fourth place over Arsenal.

Spurs beat the Gunners 3-0 in a dramatic North London Derby on Thursday night.

A victory for Mikel Arteta’s side would have seen them secure Champions League football over their nearest rivals.

However, some rash decisions early on ultimately cost them the game.

Cedric Soares’ foul on Heung-Min Son inside the area saw Harry Kane convert from the penalty spot. The Spurs striker scored his second after Rob Holding had been sent off for two yellow cards.

Son then added a Tottenham third shortly after the break, with the win taking the hosts to within one point of Arsenal with two Premier League games to play and fourth spot very much up for grabs.

“You’d want Tottenham’s games – Burnley at home and Norwich away. Newcastle away [for Arsenal] on Monday Night Football, that’s going to be really tough, especially if Spurs have won on the Sunday… Everton at home on the last day, if Everton need points, then they’ve got two really tough games.

“I think Tottenham will beat Burnley and Arsenal will have to win their last two matches – but I’m not sure they will. Tonight was a really big blow – I might be wrong and I’m neutral between these two clubs – but I do feel now if I had to put money on it, it would be on Tottenham,” Neville told the Gary Neville podcast
