Winter is coming
Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn is “hopeful” his former club will stand tall tonight against Tottenham.
Winterburn told FreeSuperTips: “We all know that if Arsenal win, they are in the Top 4. But I’m very hopeful Arsenal can go there and pick up a result that keeps them in a strong position going into the final couple of games.
“Even if it was a draw, we’d know that one win from the last two games would be enough, so it’s a really good position to be in. I think for the last few weeks it’s been a case of dealing with your own games and then looking at the other results later on.
“It’s flipped around a little bit, Arsenal were in pole position at one stage, then they had that run of three games where Tottenham took advantage, but they slipped up and Arsenal took over again.
“Arsenal are in the driving seat right now, everything relies upon them and for Arsenal it’s just about putting in the big performances until the end of the season for fourth.
“Potentially now, dare I say it, third place is getting that close, but if you’re giving me fourth now then I would certainly take it because I was nervous at the start of the season”
