The Short Fuse Premier League Predictions: Arsenal vs. Tottenham: Starting XI, Substitutions, and Score

SOL CAMPBELL: I'm going to say this. From 1992 to 2001, the now-retired Englishman was a member of the Tottenham Hotspurs squad, serving as club captain during that time. However, he was a free agent in 2001 when he joined fierce rivals Arsenal.

Because he betrayed them by saying he wouldn't leave the club, he is regarded as "Judas" by Spurs fans. However, he ran down his contract before joining the Gunners. While with Arsenal, Campbell played from 2001 to 2006, and again from 2010 to 2012.

As he opens out about the nasty abuse he's got from Tottenham fans, Sol Campbell can't understand why they still despise him 20 years after he left Arsenal.

Gallas, William: When it comes to EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR, Tottenham Hotspur must be on their toes. An ex-Togolese international, the former Gunners manager Arsene Wenger acquired him from AS Monaco in a trade.
