David Seaman, Harry Kane Confidence will Factor North London Derby.
Seaman believes Arsenal will be victorious over Tottenham this Saturday if Harry Kane doesn’t get his head back in the game.
The spurs highest goal scorer hasn’t been his best, since his failed transfer move. This week was marked by a well-taken, first-half finish. Nuno Espirito Santo side won the tie with penalties, and they moved to the next stage of the Carabao cup.
Arsenal also moved to the next round with their comfortable 3-1 win over AFC Wimbledon. We hope they can continue their winning streak as they have gotten three consecutive victories and not conceded.
Seaman predicted Arsenal will win 2-0 with this mindset, but only if Kane doesn’t get in their way.
“It’s a one that we have to win for fans and it’s hard,” he said on his Seaman Says podcast.
“My gut tells me we will win if I am being honest. I feel we have a little more confidence after the last few wins.
“My biggest worry is Harry Kane scoring during the week which will give Harry a lot back of confidence, but I still feel enough now that everybody’s back and we’ve got our confidence. They’re all fine.
“It is going to be tight. There’s no doubt about this. I’m more looking ahead to it now because the referees let a couple more tackles out and there will definitely be a few going into that game.”
Seaman stated that he is surprised at how good arsenal defence is this season.
Gabriel Magalhaes was injured and has now returned to play an important defensive position. Ben White joined the central partnership.
“That partnership worked really, didn’t you think? Looks really good, and I think things have settled down now,” he said.
“A win would be fantastic, it’d feel nice for Tottenham fans [fans] give Tottenham some back since they took so much when Tottenham was top and we were last.” It was the England match so it was only two weeks.
