Speaking in his Sky Sports column, Paul Merson says he would be «shocked» if Tottenham came out on top against Arsenal in Sunday's north London derby, due to Ange Postecoglou's reliance on playing attacking football.
The Gunners and Spurs go into the mouth-watering match — live on Sky Sports with kick-off at 2pm — level on points in the league after both sides picked up four wins and a draw from their opening games.
Tottenham have put Harry Kane's summer departure to Bayern Munich behind them, with Postecoglou's attractive style of play given the nickname «Angeball» since the start of the season.

It's a big test for Tottenham — it's not a big test for Arsenal, is it? Everybody is going mad about Tottenham, but they've only really played Manchester United at home so far this season.
