‘Spurs have better fixtures’ – Rooney, Carra make top four prediction



Wayne Rooney and Jamie Carragher both believe Tottenham have the upper hand over Arsenal in the race to finish in the top four.

The Gunners suffered a 3-0 defeat against Crystal Palace on Monday evening. This came a day after Spurs dismantled Newcastle 5-1 to leapfrog Mikel Arteta’s side in the Premier League.

Both north London outfits are on 54 points, with Antonio Conte’s men holding fourth-place on goal difference.

Arsenal have played a match less; however, their game in hand is away to European champions Chelsea, an encounter that Carragher does not expect the Gunners to get anything out of.

“I think Tottenham have got the better fixtures,” Carragher told Sky Sports (via Metro).

“They’ve got Arsenal to come to their place as well and even if you take that game out, there’s no doubt Tottenham have the better fixtures.

“Arsenal have that game in hand but if you look at that game in hand it’s Chelsea away. It’ll be difficult to see Arsenal pick up too much from that game.

“I think the fact Arsenal’s game in hand is Chelsea is a bit of a worry in some ways.”

Meanwhile, Rooney also believes Conte’s side have the upper hand. The Manchester United legend ruled out his former club, who are three points off fourth.

“I think it’s Arsenal or Tottenham, it’s between the two of them,” said Rooney. “I look at Manchester United’s form of late, I don’t think they’re going to challenge for it.

“It’s between Tottenham and Arsenal and I think Tottenham have got the experience in the squad, I give them the upper hand.

“It’s almost like no one wants that fourth place, I think that’s the inconsistency of the teams below Manchester City and Liverpool.

“I think they’ve set the marker, they’re two incredible teams who perform every week, and the teams below them, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, they are a little bit inconsistent and that shows in their league position.”
