Wenger need a “must win” against their rival tomorrow.
Just as Arsene Wenger said in the north london derby pre-match conference yesterday, the Gunners have dominated the derby for 20 years.
Club legend Thierry Henry have not lost against Tottenham in his career and is something he is very proud of.
This show how much it means to Arsenal.
Last season, Tottenham finished second below champion Chelsea while Arsenal can only get 5th which knocks them out of Champions League tournament this season.
Tottenham manager Pochettino have build such great team with the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Son Heung-min, Vertonghen and more.
For some of the fans, it hurts the most to finish below Tottenham than not winning the league.
The white side of north london has been in such a great form with Harry Kane, previous two seasons golden boot winner, is still wearing his shooting boots.
Arsenal on the other side, are just complicated. Ozil and Sanchez looks no interest in playing for the club, Lacazette their record signing never finished a 90 minutes game, and defensively poor.
Back to early 2000s, Robert Pires, Ljungberg, Henry, Vieira and the rest of the invincibles knew that winning against Tottenham is a must!
They would be executed (not that serious!) if they would come back to the dressing room after the match with a lost.
That is what Arsenal’s other legend, Lee Dixon said.
He said the previous generations of Arsenal will be threatened by other players to not lose in the north london derby.
Sad to say, Tottenham are now looking more like a top four side than Arsenal.
We would say, the class is just different and the Gunners wouldn’t stand a chance.
The regime fitness set my Pochettino is very strict and his demand is top class.
They break with pace and finishes the game off where their strikers are always looking to score goals.
Arsenal are 4 points away from Tottenham before tomorrow’s match and any more gap between them will end any competition between both teams.
Can the real Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil step up and light up the Emirates or Kane and Alli will dethrone the Gunners from north London?
