Mark Lawrenson has predicted that the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will end in a draw.

Arsenal will take on Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday.

Liverpool legend Lawrenson believes that the game between Mikel Arteta’s side and Nuno’s team will end in a 1-1 draw.

Lawrenson wrote on BBC Sport: “Tottenham won their first three league games of the season, while Arsenal lost all of theirs, but their results have been reversed in the past couple of weeks.

“I can’t say I’ve been surprised by their inconsistency. I said from the start that I don’t fancy Tottenham’s defence, and Harry Kane has not got going yet for them in the league.

“Arsenal have improved from the way they started the season but I don’t see them going on a long unbeaten run now.

“They might get a draw here though. That’s a result that both managers would probably settle for given the circumstances.”

A footnote added: “Lawro’s prediction: 1-1”.

The chances of the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham on Sunday finishing in a 1-1 draw is rated at 5/1 on Betfair.
