“It makes it sweeter” Willock enjoys scoring against Spurs

Joe Willock scored the final goal as Newcastle United drew 2-2 against Arsenal’s bitter rivals, Tottenham.

The midfielder is spending the rest of this season out on loan at the North-East side after failing to get more game time at the Emirates.

Steve Bruce’s side faces the challenge of getting relegated from the Premier League and have been working hard to get the results they need.

They returned from the international break intent on not losing their first game back against Spurs.

Jose Mourinho’s side wants to return to the top four and know they have to win as many of their remaining games as possible to achieve that.

The game against Newcastle United is one that they should win if they are serious about their top-four ambitions.

They took a 2-1 lead into the break and looked like they had secured a routine win against the Magpies.

But Bruce introduced Willock into the game on the 79th minute and the midfielder scored the leveller six minutes later to spoil the party for Spurs.

Speaking after the game, the midfielder admits that scoring was sweeter because it was against Spurs.

Willock told Sky Sports: “I am an Arsenal player and it makes it sweeter but I am happy to do my job.

“I feel like if we continue to play how we did today, we will have no problems staying in this league.”

    The Tottenham Hotspurs Obsession on this Site is worrisome and sickening, really!!
    Our Arsenal is going Way Down down n all someone can post about is how a player scored against Spurs..
    Dats how in EUL, Olympiakos thrashed us 3 1@the Emirates..On this site, we left our loss n focussed on Spurs loss agint S Prague..😒😒
    We re Arsenal, with 13 EPL titles n I think 15 FA cups!!
    Spurs are way beneath us!!
    We should try Catch up Man Utd n Liverpool and Forget about Spurs!!
    Some of our fans need to have a Success, Go-Higher Mentality, honestly!!..

      👍 Cannot disagree. Let Spurs supporters worry about their club, but good to see Joe Willock going well on loan at Newcastle United FC.

    Well said Vinnie…When you don’t have anything to celebrate you begin to celebrate the downfalls go your neighbors…
    The club is at such a low state and I think it’s beginning to affect the mentality and mindset of the average Arsenal fan…
    Watching the Man U v Brighton game..Man U went a goal down and u can swiftly see the response from them..As I’m typing they have equalised and are pressing for the lead.. Brighton are basically camped within their own half3..Whole man u pummel them demanding for a goal…

    Negative Arteta footy will never do anything like this..The most likely scenario will be us conceding anothe goal and losing the match 2-1..

    Joe has scored twice already for the pies so well done to him.
    Won’t do his transfer fee any harm either so it’s all good news for he and Arsenal.


    It is the right time joe willock can show arteta,he is the best player.

    I watched him a couple of games ago and he looked like a rolls Royce in that team…..if occasionally with kangaroo petrol.

    Arsenal need to try and sign Adama traore , we seriously lack direct speed upfront , This will allow for defensive tactic to work with counter in big games . Sell Lacazet and buy a speedstar.
