Arsenal travel to White Hart Lane tomorrow for a North London derby that is extremely crucial for both parties, with Tottenham trying to keep pace with the League Leaders Chelsea, while the Gunners are desperately trying to claw their way back into the Top Four.
Arsenal have a great historical record against Tottenham and in fact have only lost once in our last 9 meetings, and Arsene Wenger has only lost 7 of his 49 previous games against the Spuds, so Le Prof is quietly confident we can get a result at the Lane. One thing he is sure of, and that is that it will not end up as a 0-0 draw! “It is a quick pitch at White Hart Lane – and it is not massive as well.” Wenger said. “So overall the memories you have is always of games with frenetic pace, frenetic commitment, frenetic support for them.
“You always have other references going out there. On the right our supporters will be there, so our focus is there, our support is there, so I must say that’s what is in my mind – our support and the pace and commitment of the game.
“Usually [they are high-scoring games] because it’s two teams who try to play. I must say, Tottenham try to play, to go forward. We try to play, to go forward. Usually that is always finishing with goals on both sides.”
Spurs have Harry Kane and Dele Alli, Arsenal have Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud, and all four rarely go long withouut scoring. This could prove to be an exciting and high scoring affair, and I for one just can’t wait!
