Wounded Spurs Eager For A Victory Against A Resurgent Arsenal Side

As things stand on the English Premier League table, Tottenham sit in the third position and are four points ahead of Arsenal who they host on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners go into this away match at Wembley Stadium after a convincing midweek victory against Bournemouth, winning 5-1, while Spurs suffered a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.

This week, David Malatule, former Tembisa Classic defender gets in on the predictions on the following matches. Do you agree with his choices?

 

Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal (English Premier League)

Match 1 Soccer 6 Pool 2 March S6 V1 P1

League Rankings: Tottenham Hotspur 3rd & Arsenal 4th 

Useful facts: Seven points separate the two teams on the log standings and that should motivate Arsenal to want to go for all three points, but they know it won’t be easy against such a determined Tottenham side. Interestingly, in their 27 league games so far, the Lilywhites have not played a single draw, having won 20 and lost seven. Playing at home, they will want all three points to remain by the end of the game, and that could spell trouble for the Gunners. The last time the two met was in the quarterfinals of the Football League Cup, in December last year, where Tottenham won 2-0. 

David Malatule: Draw

 

Kaizer Chiefs v Highlands Park (Premier Soccer League)

Match 3 Soccer 6 Pool 2 March S6 V1 P1

League Rankings: Kaizer Chiefs 6th & Highlands Park 9th 

Useful facts: After their 1-1 draw against Polokwane City this past weekend, the general feeling is that Kaizer Chiefs are out of the title race. But strange things happen in the game of football, not least in a league as inconsistent as the PSL, and Amakhosi are well aware of this. Interestingly, the two Gauteng sides will battle it out in Durban as part of Chiefs’ arrangement to take some of their fixtures to the seaside city. Highlands Park always seem to put their best foot forward when playing the so-called big teams and Ernst Middendorp’s men should, therefore, expect a tough fight. Owen da Gama’s charges are tussling for a Top Eight finish, which would be a credible achievement given this is their first season back in the elite division, and getting the better of an inconsistent Chiefs side will boost their confidence a great deal going into the last few games of the campaign.   

David Malatule: Kaizer Chiefs win

 

Free State Stars v Black Leopards (Premier Soccer League)

Match 4 Soccer 6 Pool 2 March S6 V1 P1

League Rankings: Free State Stars 15th & Black Leopards 13th 

Useful facts: Where the two sides are situated is the ICU of the league table, where no team ever wants to be at this stage of the season. This makes this fixture a crucial one for both sides. Free State Stars, in particular, need the win badly in order to move up and, in the process, take down Black Leopards. It all happens at the unpredictable surface of Goble Park and it’s safe to say the grass will suffer on Saturday evening!

David Malatule: Draw
