Sergio Aguero’s prediction for Arsenal this season will leave Spurs fans fuming

Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has backed Arsenal to celebrate St. Totteringham's Day at the end of the 2022/23 season, tipping Mikel Arteta's side to finish above Tottenham Hotspur.

The London rivals' vicious hatred of each other dates back over a century when Woolwich Arsenal uprooted 12 miles north into Tottenham territory and was further fuelled by the glittering success that followed. The Gunners have won 13 league championships compared to Spurs' measly two – the same number of titles Arsenal have won at White Hart Lane.

In 1971, Arsenal won 1-0 in N17 to lift the First Division title, before repeating the same feat in 2004 with their ‘Invincibles’ side.

Yet, in recent seasons, Arsenal's plight since the axing of legendary manager Arsene Wenger has been exacerbated by a resurgence from Tottenham with their north London rivals consistently finishing above them in the Premier League table.

Not since Leicester City's 5000/1 title-winning campaign have the Gunners managed to top Tottenham in the standings but former Man City icon Aguero believes Arteta is the man to return Arsenal to the Champions League.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Will Arsenal finish above Tottenham next season? Let us know in the comments section.

"United is in the process of rebuilding and with a new manager but they are always in the fight," wrote Aguero in his blog. "Chelsea, although they have lost important players, especially in defence, have shown that they are competitive and added [Raheem] Sterling.

"The same as Tottenham with a coach like [Antonio] Conte who has experience in the Premier League, who has always formed competitive teams and has a very important offensive duo like the one made up of [Harry] Kane and Son [Heung-min].

"But let's not forget that there is always a surprise team and this year there are many who can give the note. Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brighton… there are many who will fight for a place in Europe. I believe the top four will be Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal."
