Pundits believe momentum is with Tottenham after their derby win against Arsenal on Thursday night.

The North London rivals are battling for fourth place, with the Gunners a point ahead with two games left.

Former Arsenal defender Matthew Upson feels it is advantage Spurs now they have the momentum.

"Off the back of this result Tottenham's confidence is sky high," he told BBC Radio 5 live.

"From an Arsenal point of view, at this moment in time they are at a low. They have to go away to Newcastle and that is a difficult place to go at the best of times.

"At this moment in time, Spurs look good. They are chasing Arsenal down. Arsenal will have to win both of their last two games. Tottenham will win theirs."

Ex-Spurs striker Robbie Keane agreed, adding: "The momentum has shifted Tottenham's way.

"Son will be flying, one goal behind Mohamed Salah. Spurs will be flying and Arsenal have got big, big injuries."
