+Pre-match: Arsenal

Posted on 25 April 2005  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Martin Jol still believes Arsenal provide formidable opposition despite looking highly unlikely to retain their title this season.

In fact, anything less than a win over us at Highbury tonight and the Premiership trophy will quickly be making its way over to Stamford Bridge.

After remaining unbeaten for the whole of last season, the Head Coach suspected this would not be repeated with the emergence of Chelsea and the fact that Arsene Wenger has opted to blood a number of younger players this term.

"They are still a terrific side," reasoned Martin. "They have had to play with some youngsters this season because you can't play with the same team all the time.

"The team has changed this season with the young players coming in and this has meant they haven't had all the results go their way.

"They are still looking fine though and, at the end of the season, can still end up second in the Premiership.

"Arsenal have done well overall and, if Thierry Henry is playing, it makes a big difference. Hopefully he won't be playing against us!

"However, we have to look at our own game. If we play well like we did against Liverpool we are in with a chance and hopefully we can get something out of this game."
