Former Chelsea and Arsenal star, Lianne Sanderson has tipped the Gunners to beat Tottenham to the top four place in the Premier League this season.
She said that Arsenal fans won’t expect less from the team after a successful summer in the transfer market.
Tottenham and Arsenal battled for the position till the last day of last season, with Antonio Conte’s Spurs having the last laugh at the end.
Mikel Arteta’s side had to settle for a spot in the Europa League this term but have been very active in the transfer market, with the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko joining from Manchester City.
Arsenal began their season with a victory against Crystal Palace, the same with Tottenham, who hammered Southampton 4-0 to kick-start their campaign.
“Yes, they missed out on the Champions League but they do look better and the signings that they’ve made have been brilliant.
“Arsenal threw it away last year, getting in the Champions League and finishing in the top four and Tottenham managed to get it at the last minute.
“I think that they need to progress and finish in the top four.
“Arsenal fans will feel that way too.
“I still fancy Arsenal over Tottenham. I think that Arsenal fans will expect to finish in the top four at least,” she said on talkSPORT.
