William Gallas Exclusive: Spurs v Arsenal Will Decide Who Finishes Fourth

Former Arsenal and Tottenham defender William Gallas believes the North London derby will ultimately decide who finishes fourth in the Premier League, claiming Manchester United are now out of the race. Arsenal currently occupy the final Champions League spot with five games remaining, as Spurs sit two points behind in fifth. The Gunners had previously lost three in a row against Crystal Palace, Brighton and Southampton, but bounced back with a 4-2 victory over Chelsea and a 3-1 win over Manchester United. The Red Devils’ defeat at the Emirates Stadium leaves them six points adrift of the top four, having played an extra game – and Gallas sees that gap as insurmountable at this stage of the season.


Top Four Between Spurs And Arsenal

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “After Arsenal’s defeat against Southampton, everybody thought it might be difficult for Arsenal to qualify for the top four. 

“Now, I hope the players understand in the last [few] games they need to show the same level of performance that they showed against Chelsea. 

“So for the top four, not Man United because they aren't good, there are too many problems with them. 

“Tottenham are still there and with their manager, he has a desire to win every game and he expects to finish in the top four. 

“I feel Tottenham vs Arsenal [next month] will be very crucial for the top four.”

Conte Will Turn Spurs Into Title Contenders

Regardless of how this campaign finishes, Gallas is convinced Antonio Conte is the right man to coach Tottenham – and believes the Italian will try to turn the North London side into Premier League title challengers next season.

Conte replaced Nuno Espirito Santo as Spurs boss in November last year after the former Wolves manager presided over a poor start to the season, and has overseen significant improvement.

“Antonio Conte is the right man for Tottenham,” Gallas added.

“With his desire to win every game and his passion, he will take some players to push themselves to the highest level because when you play in the Premier League, you have to be at the highest level. 

“That's why sometimes it's very difficult to play in the Premier League because you have to be consistent and that's not easy, but with Conte, he's got that desire and he shows that every day and every game.

“He speaks to his players and he explains, ‘Okay, last week we had a great game but next game we have to do the same thing’, so I think he's the right manager for Tottenham. 

“He's just arrived at Tottenham and if he stays, which I hope he does, I'm sure he'll choose the right players for next season to try and compete for the title.”
