Tottenham star already expressing confidence ahead of North London derby

Gareth Bale says Tottenham will be ready to face Arsenal next in the Premier League.

The Real Madrid loanee has hit top form at the right time this season, with him now one of their most reliable players after scoring twice against Crystal Palace.

Their next Premier League game will be against Arsenal and the Gunners are struggling to end this campaign ahead of their bitter rivals once again.

Mikel Arteta’s side dropped points in their game against Burnley at the weekend in a 1-1 draw.

It is a game that they should have won considering that they are only clinging on to a small hope of making the top four.

Tottenham beat them 2-0 in the reverse fixture last year and Bale certainly wasn’t in the sort of form then that he is now.

The Real Madrid loanee is now confident that his team will be ready to face Arsenal after their Europa League game on Thursday.

‘Going into next week’s game we have confidence behind us now but we know it’s going to be difficult,’ Bale said via Mail Sport.

‘Obviously a midweek game (against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League) before that but we’ll recover and go again.’

Spurs should be confident after racking up three wins on the bounce in the league but they want to be careful with that confidence, the North London derby has a habit of biting you on the butt when you least expect it.

Let them do all the talking before the game and hopefully, Arteta’s boys will do their talking where it actually counts, on the pitch.

    Wonder if he’s removed the Real Madrid bench from his backside yet ?

    we should be a little concerned because he’s looking like his old self in recent games…I can only hope we don’t approach this game with the hopes of squeaking out a low scoring victory…it’s time to take off the handbrakes for the remaining League games so we can properly assess our players at both ends of the pitch before the summer window…maybe even a formational change will be in the cards, like a more aggressive 3-5-2 or a 4-1-4-1

    That’s hype from scoring double, ahead of derby….

    Fare enough, he has been lousy since back in London too

    let’s be human, let him enjoy the moment, celebrate, shoot bunch of holes in his backyard til game time. We all deserve that small spark nowdaya…

    Then let’s all wish Luiz, Ceballos, William all injured, also pepe and Saka rested before injured.

    This way how coach can’t ruin our chance to at least stay in 10th to 8th place instead of 12th to 24th we are so close to or at all season.

    Then he is forced to play laca in center Auba on right end where he been so prolific in his career and not left.

    That is simply unreal to switch Saka from his best & natural left flank to RW in order to play Auba on left where he obviously not happy nor can he be played there cuz Henry was at 21; expecting same effect!!!

    Ceballos William out is how Rowe were forced to be played or he with U23 with Nelson!

    Same in defense, it took luiz red card to pair Gabriel, Holding or Mari!!!

    We all swore he would never play Luiz afterwards. Nope; he did it again and again..

    William having a good game out of 15 is lousy. Rowe has 12 good ones!

    Said it, Arsenal team&Cluv is built like a top Ferrari car, but pilot not trained to drive it.

    Average car are right behind and in front of US when have car to win race this year as never in decades; squad is most complete since Highbury….

    Letts hope to see our best players in best positions upon tac tic which decided upon team we play.

    But overall our CB pair and middle should be same ones in order to get used to play together and to EPL as a Gabriel.

    Chambers Holding is serious business, training together for so long, with club spirit brought young.

    We play so many games but no creativity nor logic in team formation and rotation. William Ceballos Luiz,, 3 players useless in other clubs..

    Leno
    Bellerin Chambers Holding Tierney
    ………………….Partey – Elneny
    ……………………………Xhaka
    ………Auba………..Laca……….. Saka..

    We know Spurs are coming to destroy in middle with hummers powergouse as Ndombele and Sissoko to be combined.

    Or would play Rowe and pick Elneny over xhaka for his defensive nature. Then bring xhaka at some point, these guys are heavyweights..

    Maybe not out too much into this game as EL is our only realistic target to Europe period; CL for sure. We seem to be pretty saved by drawing so far and more so called weaker teams still on..

    .Ajax, Spurs, Man U , shaktar. Milan Roma, being main big teams.

    We will meet 2 twice and 1 in final to lift trophy.

    Man U will finish second, Chelsea third, then Spurs may land to 4th or fifth if Leicester wakes back up as Reds also.

    In other words top 4 tob6 has a huge & tight race as 2nd&3rd .

    EL a must win & priority, put it all on these EL games, not waist & risk players in tiring useless EPL,
