Harry on Arsenal

Harry Redknapp says we'll take a positive attitude to Arsenal on Saturday.

Harry Redknapp says we'll take a positive attitude to Arsenal on Saturday.

We travel to N5 for the first North London derby of the season level on points with the Gunners and fourth in the Barclays Premier League.

A fine start to the campaign was dented by Stoke's smash-and-grab 1-0 win at the Lane last weekend but that was quickly forgotten as we beat Everton 2-0 in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.

It's a stark contrast to last season when we travelled to the Emirates on October 29, 2008, sitting at the foot of the table.

"It's a much better situation than last season," said Harry at Spurs Lodge on Friday. "All things being equal we should have beaten Stoke last week as well, we played well enough but it wasn't to be.

"It's great to be going there full of confidence. We're playing well and we feel we can give anyone a game, no-one's going to get an easy game with Tottenham, that's for sure.

"We've got a squad here that's capable of matching anyone."

Harry was asked in his pre-match media briefing 'will you go for it?'

"We always go for it," he said. "We only know one way to play and that's to have a go. I wouldn't set the team up to play in any other way. We always look to be positive and try and win the game, to take it to the opposition.

"We feel that certain parts of our play can cause them problems and we have to make sure we impose ourselves on them, not go there, sit back and worry about what they can do to us.

"We've got to be positive and feel we can do that and win the game."
