Peter Crouch names the one area where Tottenham vs Arsenal will be won and lost

Thursday’s north London derby is one of the most highly-anticipated in recent years as Arsenal and Tottenham battle it out for a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League.

Mikel Arteta’s men currently side four points above their local rivals and a win would secure them a place in the top-four for the first time in five years. The Gunners come into the match on the back of some solid form, winning their last four Premier League outings – a run of games that saw them defeat Chelsea, Manchester United, West Ham and Leeds United.

The Lillywhites have won just one of their last four matches but a spirited display during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield showed that Antonio Conte and Co know how to approach a big game. Now, former Spurs frontman Peter Crouch has spoken about where the game will be won and lost, claiming that Harry Kane and Son Heung-min hold the keys to the match.

When asked what the key battle will be, Crouch told the Daily Mail : “Whoever is looking after [Harry] Kane and Son [Heung-min]. That is the area of the pitch where this is won and lost because those two can take a game away from anyone.

“Son is criminally underrated – he’s up there with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.” Son has netted 20 Premier League goals this term, making him the second top scorer in the division, a statistic that reads even more impressive when you consider that none of his goals have come from the penalty spot.
