Tottenham Hotspur: 8 Reasons Why Spurs Will Finish Above Arsenal

It's still early goings in the Premier League, but with each team having six games under their belts, it's never too early for bold predictions. 

Here's one for you: Spurs will finish ahead of Arsenal this season. 

There are a number of reasons why, and we'll get into those in a bit, but first let's see what each club has done so far.

Currently, Spurs are in fifth place on the table with 11 points, trailing in-form Chelsea by five points and third place Manchester United by only one point. 

Arsenal are currently in eighth place on the table with nine points.

While that's not much difference this early in the season, expect that gap to widen little by little each month. 

This prediction isn't meant to say that Arsenal are rubbish by any means, only that Spurs are the side in the ascendancy. By season's end, the top five of the table will likely include Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs, in no particular order. 

One of those teams has to be the odd man out, and this year it might just be United, as Spurs and the Gunners are two squads most definitely on the rise. There's a long season and many months of football yet to come, but as we sit now, anything is possible. 

There likely won't be as big of a gap between the top squads this season as there has been in the past. It will be tight all the way through, and if we're lucky we might have a final match day as dramatic as last season's was. Expect Spurs and the Gunners to be key players when that time comes.
