Arsenal tipped to seal fourth at expense of Spurs by Jamie Redknapp

Manchester United have sewn up the title and Wigan, Reading and QPR have been consigned to relegation. But the final of the day of the Premier League season will be a fascinating afternoon of football, as North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal vie for the final Champions League spot.

Mason Minister (Arsenal fan) says...

Brilliant post again Jamie. See alot of people barking about your comment about the strength of the two squads. I personally thibj their around equal. Although if you take bale out of the conclusion, the league table would speak for its self. Im hoping Paulo will do us a favour regardless we will probably win because its always nice to see Spurs lose. We love you Arsenal, no matter what. Well, I do.

Have you been watching a different Dembele to everyone else? He's been one of their best players this season, probably second or third best player for Spurs? And if your judging by goals the your saying that Wilshire is rubbish so yeah. STFU!

Arsenal should pull through and seal 4th spot as we have seen in previous seasons Tottenham just don't have the belief that they can finish above their rivals despite this being a pretty poor season for Arsenal they will still finish above Tottenham which has to be hard for their fans to accept but they have blown it again.

Jamie is right. But he could of said it one sentence. Season is over, Spurs will be 5th and only have themselves to blame. They blew it several times since January. But hey they had a run in the worthless European cup which got them all of nothing just because a manager wanted to win it again to proof something and if we would of won it would of meant nothing anyway as no champions league again. At least we can go through the whole process again next season!! 34 years and watching Spurs NEVER changes. How am I able to say to everyone before the season finishes yes we beat Man U that is great but they will again stutter as they think they are suddenly as good as Barcelona or Man U. It's a great team they are great to watch (the whole team, not just Bale) but I'm getting bored of being able to predict what they will achieve!

Spurs have got a 'far superior' squad than Arsenal? You do realise they're starting Tom Huddlestone at the moment.

Actually "Mo Oseni" - Chelsea have not gotten to 16 finals in 16 years, and Arsenal have managed 3 cup finals in the last 8 years, not 1! Time for some Maths tutoring perhaps mate.

Luke Knight (Tottenham Hotspur fan) says...

Not sure I agree on a better squad either! pretty evenly matched. The lack of a striker has and will most likely cost spurs this season. The shame of it is this has happened 2 years in a row now and every spurs fan probably saw it coming. To quote a famous film, "It's not the despair Laura, I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand." I think that sums it up. lets hope for a miracle come Sunday.

I feel there's all to play for at the weekend, i love arsenal and have endured with them for a long time and i feel its high time we started winning some trophies. look at rvp he seems happy now, all we need is that winning mentality back. wenger is he right man, and has always been, but the man has got to show us his transfer nous at the end of the season. finish 3rd,4th or 5th, doesnt matter just want to see arsenal improve and play with the flamboyance and swagger we used to have with the pires's and company.

I hope that arsenal loose because that way we have guarenteed 3rd place sounds a bit biased but oh well!

I am seeing some very sensible responsives to this column, unlike other articles on the site. Arsenal fans speaking sense as well as Spurs, we've had a great season considering injuries and tranfers, Arsenal have made a fantastic comeback, you can't deny that. But saying our squad is far superior is arguable, our bench isn't very strong at the moment, and like for like, I'd say Arsenals midfield is probably stronger on their day.

Dean Richardson (Sunderland fan) says...

Sunderland have no pressure on them going into this game, yes we will probably lose but we aint gonna roll over for nobody not under Di Canios watch!!!! Arsenal will beat Newcastle aswell

Richard Roberts (Arsenal fan) says...

Chelsea may be better because they have a better quality bench, but Spurs better man for man? From the Tottenham defence you would take Lloris and Vertongen, from the midfiled obviously Bale, possibly Sandro for Arteta. Up front, pretty even between Giroud and Defoe, Adebayor not even worth a mention. So I would make that a mixed team of 5 spurs players max. Lloris Sagna Vert Merty/Kos Gibbs Walcott Santi Sandro Bale Giroud Defoe Anybody think different?

Dean O kelly (Arsenal fan) says...

Spurs do not have a better squad than arsenal .. Grioud and podlski are better than defo and addy, theo is better than lennon, santi wilsheare and arteta are better than demble parker and huddleston gibbs is better than assuo, walker and sanga are the same maybe edge walker abit because of his pace, vertongen is better than our center backs but koscleiny is better than dawson and spurs may have a better goal keeper and bale is better than our left sided players .. Lets be honest we beat spurs 5-2 and they scrapped 2-1 against us and we had injurys .. Bandwagon comment saying they have a better squad.

Arsenal's much maligned defence currently have conceded less goals than any team apart from Man City.

Rob Smith (Arsenal fan) says...

Best starting 11 from the two clubs Lloris Sagna Dawson Vertonghan Gibbs Arteta Walcott Bale Cazorla Giroud Hardly Spurs having the better Squad

Daniel Dwyer (Arsenal fan) says...

It will be close on the last day I think Newcastle will run Arsenal close. I do not agree that it will be a great achievement for Wenger nor do I agree that Spurs have a far superior squad. I would even question as to whether it is superior. Wilshere, Arteta, Ramsey, Rosicky, Ox, Walcott, Santi, Giroud, Podolski, Gibbs, Monreal, Sagna, Jenks, Koscielny, Tommy V, Mertesacker, I think it would be fair to say that we actually have as much depth. We have four guys in double figures this season for goals...how many do Spurs have?

Sandeep Chohan (Tottenham Hotspur fan) says...

Arsenal fans are really objecting to the inferior squad idea and listing 3 or 4 good midfielders they have. Yes Carzorla, Walcott and Ox are impressive, but you are not thinking about the whole team. Lloris, Walker, Vertonghen and Kaboul are all better than their counterparts. Bale and Sandro are world class with Lennon and Dembele not far behind. Giroud and Podolski are in better form than Defoe and Adebayor but I am not convinced they are better players. Anyway, it is all about opinions...

3 cup finals in 8 years actually. 2 League cups and a Champions league

Jay T (Arsenal fan) says...

We have conceded less, scored more goals and have more points then spurs. Don't sound more superior to me.

Steven Goggin (Arsenal fan) says...

All we need is Sunderland to beat Tottenham or draw (obviously) no matter what. We did them a favour against Wigan, now do us a favour! Although I'm still confident we'll beat Newcastle Sunday!
