Despite recent rumours Arsenal’s skipper Robin Van Persie is as devoted as ever to bring the Gunners back on a top four spot in the Premiership.
The Dutchman is highly linked with a transfer away from the Emirates Stadium in the summer, but the striker who is still running out of contract with Arsenal doesn’t seem to look into that.
“What better way to set things straight again than to beat Spurs?” the Dutchman said.
“I would rather be playing them now than on any other day, and we know that a win is absolutely vital.
“I don’t think anybody would deny that Spurs have a really good side – and they’ve added consistency this season.
“They are winning the tougher games and, as a result, have made that next step towards the top teams.
“Spurs have invested a lot of money over the past few years, and when you look at the figures it’s reflected in their league position.”
Arsene Wenger’s biggest problem at the moment should be keeping the star striker at the club and that can only happen if the Gunners will be brought to new heights starting next season. This was the worst season yet since Wenger came at the club and things can’t remain this way but can’t change either without new top players brought to the club.
