EPL Table: The One Reason Tottenham Will STILL Finish Above Arsenal

Tottenham will finish above Arsenal on the EPL Table for the third successive season and knock the Gunners out of the Premier League top four in the process.

Arsenal climbed to third in the Premier League table on Monday by beating Newcastle.

They are two points clear of Mauricio Pochettino's side after four defeats in five for north London rivals Tottenham.

The Red Devils sit level on points with Spurs in fifth and Chelsea are a point back in sixth.

But according to former Aston Villa and Chelsea midfielder Andy Townsend, United will make the top four, despite a recent dip in form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He can see Tottenham joining them, with Arsenal and the Blues missing out.

Townsend says Arsenal's away form will end up costing them.

“I think United will be in there, I do,” he told beIN SPORTS. “Despite the fact their fixtures are tough I still think they'll get in there.”

“I think it's going to be a battle between Arsenal and Spurs.

“It's such a tough one to call.

“Arsenal have the better fixtures, Tottenham have on paper harder ones.

“Will the new stadium tomorrow night give them a massive lift? I think it will.

“I'm just going to go for Tottenham.

“Arsenal have those five away games, they haven't always found it easy away from home.
