Image for Tottenham: Jamie Weir agrees Holding was right to see the line

Sky Sports reporter Jamie Weir has been left ‘flabbergasted’ after people suggested that Rob Holding shouldn’t have been sent off for his elbow on Tottenham star Heung-Min Son.

Three successive wins the Gunners had them in pole position to secure a place in the top four with a four point lead over the Lilywhites, but Spurs’ recent triumph in the north London derby has seen them go one point behind. 

So, with two games left to play the race for Champions League football is very much alive.

Will Spurs finish in the top four?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Although, one moment that is still being talked about from the recent clash with Arsenal is Rob Holding’s challenge on Son Heung-min which saw him receive a second yellow card.

‘Absolutely flabbergasted at anyone saying this isn’t a yellow card. It’s a red card… IN RUGBY!’

Tottenham, it would certainly seem on paper at least, have the easier run-in as they host the relegation-threatened Burnley on Sunday at 12noon and will have a chance to overtake their city rivals who don’t play to Monday night.

It won’t exactly be straightforward for the Emirates Stadium-based club to reclaim fourth spot either as they take on a resurgent Newcastle side who will be playing their final home game of the season. 

On the final day, Conte’s men will travel to the already relegated Norwich while Arsenal will host Everton, who may still be embroiled in a relegation scrap and with plenty to play for.
