Aaron Ramsdale has spoken of his mood ahead of Arsenal’s big clash with Tottenham this week, with a Champions League potentially on the line.
We can cement ourselves into the top four with a win in Thursday’s North London Derby, having already built a four-point gap over Spurs with three matches remaining.
Ramsdale is looking forward to the challenge of the biggest NLD for some years, admitting to a level of nerves also.
“It’s going to be good fun,” Aaron told Sky Sports(via the Standard).
“If you don’t get excited and nervous for this type of game, then I think you’re in the wrong profession.
“The history of this fixture over the years is obviously well known, not just to the two sets of fans, but up and down the country.
“I’d probably say as a new Arsenal player and a new fan of the team, this is the biggest one for a long time with the magnitude of the game and what can come for both teams.”
This could be the game where we seal our return to the Champions League, which shouldn’t be discounted, but the pressure should be even moreso for our rivals.
Is there more pressure on us or on our noisy neighbours this week?

I’d like for Ramsdale to chill out and to concentrate on his own game!he hasn’t been at his best for a while now.
It is said people who take time to reflect on and celebrate their success are generally more optimistic, take better care of themselves.
Celebrations increase people sense of well being, regardless of socioeconomic factors, education, age or gender.
Let him have fun, he seems a natural happy lad.
I hope MA will flood the midfield and not give Son and Kane time and space.
And the gunners must concentrate 120% and not go awol when Leeds scored with the attacker totally unmarked,
Yes we must stay switch on and compact, Ramsdale has to remain focus and look to come off his line in a flash .
Song loves to run behind defenders and he is deadlyat it , if the game remain same at halftime , Conte will throw everything at us.
We can make the short trip back with all the bragging rights
We have to go for a win because if we sit back and defend and play for a draw, the Spuds will attack us relentlessly. If they score first we will go at them which will leave gaps and we will be vulnerable. So the best tactic would be attack is the best form of defence, go all out and score first, let the Spuds come out of the blocks and leave gaps for us to score again, game over.
