The Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe is well aware that anything can happen in a high pressure North London derby despite Arsenal’s recent run of poor form, but with Spurs supreme confidence this season he is confident that his team can do the double over Arsenal.
“It means more to Arsenal than us. Obviously because of the way things have gone for them this season.
“I think it’s been a lot of ups and downs, where at the beginning they didn’t start too well, then they picked it up and then they’ve had a little blip again.
“But at the same time I’ve always said they’re a good team. You can’t write Arsenal off.
“In football it’s always the next game, you can change it in the next one and I think playing against us, it’ll be a different Arsenal from what people have seen over the last few weeks.”
“It’s going to be a difficult game but I’m confident, obviously, with the way we’re playing.
“We’ve got a really strong squad now and everyone’s playing well. Everyone’s firing and team spirit is fantastic which I think is always important if you want to try and achieve something.
“We’ve got a great chance to go there and get three points.”
Last season in this fixture, Tottenham came back from two goals down to beat Arsenal 3-2 so this is set to be yet another exciting game in this 150th meeting between the two sides.
