O'Hara tells Spurs: Beat Arsenal and watch them CRUMBLE

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara is convinced Arsenal will collapse in tonight's North London derby.

Arsenal go to Spurs knowing a win will guarantee Champions League qualification.

"I think it's a huge pressurised situation for both teams and it will be about who handles that better," O'Hara told the Daily Mail, in association with Grosvenor Sport.

"Who's got the experience? Who's got the tactical nous and who's got the cool heads in the fire pit? Because the atmosphere it going to be electric, absolutely electric.

"I've played in north London derbies - you've got to be composed, you can't make stupid mistakes, you can't be a rabbit in the headlights, and the team who handles that best will win the game.

"I think the pressure is going to mount on Arsenal. It's a young squad of players and this is a massive game for them. We've got a bit more experience with Hugo Lloris, [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg, [Harry] Kane and [Eric] Dier. We're better equipped to handle the pressure. It's really evenly matched but with the players we've got, we've got enough to beat them.

"They've got better full backs than us, we have a better forward line. The midfield is close and centre backs are close too. The difference we have, is we have Kane and Son - they don't have that.

"They'll crumble. If we win, they'll fall apart," he adds. "I'm telling you, they'll lose another one or draw, and they'll miss out. They've got Newcastle away - that's no easy fixture - and Everton are fighting. We win this game, I think Arsenal will drop points. Our fixtures, we should go on and win them."
