Our very own Jack Wilshere has proved he is an Arsenal fan through and through many times, and was famously derided for cpomparing our North London rivals to s**t at an FA Cup victory parade, but last season, for the first time since Jack arrived at the club, Spurs actually finished above Arsenal in the League and took our usual Champions League position.
Jack has revealed the pain he felt at that outcome and is adamant that it must not happen again in this campaign. “We want to make North London red this time around,” Wilshere said.
“We know that Tottenham have come along way in the last few years, they finished above us last year which really hurt.
“I know it’s not the be-all and end-all finishing above Tottenham, but we want to do that. We know if we finish above them this year we will be there or thereabouts.”
Tottenham are currently 4 points ahead of the Gunners, and Arsene Wenger hasn’t beaten Mauricio Ponchettino in our last 4 meetings, which makes our fixture at Wembley even more important this time around. We can take some confidence from the fact that we have won our last 9 games played at Wembley Stadium and beating Spurs would give us a perfect 10 and bring us back into contention for the Top Four places.
We are right behind you Jack. We must not let Tottenham open up a gap again. Let’s paint North London red!
Onwards and Upwards!
