Martin Keown and Chris Sutton both agree that Tottenham and Manchester United will beat Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for a top four spot in the Premier League.
Spurs currently lead the way in third place on 61 points with north London rivals the Gunners only a point behind in fourth, meanwhile a resurgent United are on 58 points and Chelsea – who have a game in hand on the rest – are on 57.
Goals from Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw Unai Emery’s side beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s outfit – their first league loss under the Norwegian – to jump above them in the table.
“On August 6, a week before the start of this season, I predicted this top four and I’m standing by it,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“Pochettino is too good a manager to let Spurs slip and United’s reemergence under Solskjaer has been stunning to watch.”
Sutton added: “Liverpool and Manchester City have the top two sewn up and it will be tight but I’m backing Pochettino to snap Spurs out of their tough run while Solskjaer will ake sure United don’t dwell on the 2-0 loss at Arsenal.”
