Spurs v Arsenal - opposing manager's view

Posted on 29 April 2017  - 15:43

Arsene Wenger has had his say ahead of Sunday's north London derby – and he believes we're in for a rip-roaring game.

It's the final meeting with Arsenal at White Hart Lane and Wenger, whose side are sixth on 60 points going into the weekend's action and chasing a place in the top four, expects both teams to be in determined mood in front of goal.

“I expect an open match, a committed match, a match with high pace,” he said.

“There could be goals because both teams play positive football, try to go forward and play in an offensive way.

“Normally that finishes with goals if you look at the quality of players on both sides.”

We're second in the standings and 14 points ahead of our rivals, having played a game more.

Asked how he expects our finish to the season to pan out, Wenger said: “I focus on Arsenal. What will happen to Spurs, it’s not to me to comment about that.

“I have to focus on what we can do and how well we can finish the season. We have big Premier League games, we have an FA Cup final to prepare for, so we have to focus absolutely on us and not expect any weakness from our opponents.”
