This North London derby will be nothing short of a very tough game both side. People thinking Arsenal’s chances are in any way diminished this time around are kidding themselves. The Gunners will be hurting and well up for this contest.
It’s the last game at White Hart Lane and There’s the small matter off Spurs still being in contention for the title. Arsenal would love to throw a spanner in the works.
Should Walcott, Ozil, The Ox, Sanchez or Giroud all ‘turn up’ and turn it on… Spurs are going to have to be on their A game to win this.
Arsenal boss Aresen Wenger knows showing the battling characteristics which his players have displayed on occasion this year will be key to his team’s chances on Sunday.
“The combative side, yes, of course, will be right. In this kind of derby where you know commitment will be 100 per cent on both sides. To be capable to fight, yes, will be a very big part.
“I think the players care. The players have a good mentality. I love the attitude of this team. There’s a good atmosphere compared to one or two months ago.”
Prediction: Tottenham 1 Arsenal 2
