Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes doesn’t think Arsenal possess the “bottle or the balls” to beat Tottenham in Saturday’s north London derby.
After last night’s 2-1 defeat to Swansea, Arsene Wenger’s side have now lost back-to-back Premier League matches and are six points adrift of leaders Leicester City.
Scholes, speaking as a pundit during BT Sport’s coverage of Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Manchester City, reckons Spurs can end the Gunners’ title hopes if they triumph in Saturday’s derby clash and doesn’t offer much hope for Wenger’s boys.
“They [Spurs] can virtually put Arsenal away with a win,” Scholes said.
“The question about Arsenal is – have Arsenal got the bottle to go there and win a game after the two results they’ve just had?
“I doubt whether they’ve got the bottle or the balls to go on and do it.”
