Spurs’ Under 18 side will play their final competitive fixture of the 2021/22 season on Saturday, when they host Arsenal in a Premier League South north London derby at Hotspur Way (the match starts at 11:00am). Spurs recorded a 3-3 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion in their last league match, and especially during the second half of that match, Spurs played some very good football. Arsenal are 14 points above Spurs in the Premier League South table, with 45 points from 25 league matches, going into their final league fixture of the season. Arsenal won 3-2 against Spurs in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, and they go into the match on Saturday in good form. Spurs will be hoping to end the season well, and there would be no better way to end the league season, than winning against Arsenal at Hotspur Way. This should be a great match, and I look forward to reporting on it, as always. Arsenal actually haven’t won at Hotspur Way against Spurs in the Premier League South, since the 2016/17 season, when a side including Eddie Nketiah, Donyell Malen and Joe Willock, won 4-2 against Spurs. I would like to wish the current Spurs Under 18 side all the very best of luck for the game on Saturday.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Maguire, Bryan-Waugh, Dorrington, Sayers, Hackett, Abbott, Kyerematen, McKnight, Donley (c), Heaps, Williams.
Subs from: Hayton, Linton, Andiyapan, Bloxham, Owen.
Previous meeting: Spurs 2-3
My score prediction: Spurs 3-2.
My one to watch: Khayon Edwards. The Arsenal player and second year scholar has scored an impressive total of 14 Premier League South goals and provided three assists, from 16 matches this season.
