Hugo Lloris has confirmed the feeling that Tottenham could not be in worse shape ahead of the North London Derby with Arsenal.
Spurs come into the tie having failed to win each of their last six matches in all competitions, and directly coming to the match after a thoroughly disappointing loss to Bayer Leverkusen, which leaves them on the verge of elimination from the Champions League at the group stage.
The Tottenham goalkeeper and club captain has now revealed his disappointment in his side’s recent slump, and dismal midweek display.
Arsenal and Liverpool are claimed to be interested in signing Euro 2016 star Moussa Sissoko, but Newcastle are claimed to be demanding £35 Million for his signature.
The Magpies were relegated from the Premier League in recent months, and are now tasked with returning to the English top division, and will be keen to do that at their first attempt, as they did in 2010.
Interest has already come for their main midfielder from last season Georginio Wijnaldum, and reports quickly came that they had slapped a £25 Million asking price on his head. ...........Read more
If things had really gone against Arsenal this weekend we could have found ourselves slipping out of the Champions League places and unable to catch Manchester United before we had even kicked a ball against Norwich City today. And although that would not have been a comfortable situation for the Gunners, I think we would have responded well.
It appears to me that Arsenal produce our best football when we are under pressure and have our backs to the wall. I cannot be unhappy that Manchester United and Tottenham could only manage a point each in their respective games against Leicester City and Chelsea but I am a little concerned that the Arsenal players will feel that the pressure is off. ...........Read more
Arsenal fans just love beating Tottenham, and we missed a big chance to put more distance between us in the League by only getting a draw at the Emirates yesterday, but would you say that considering our 5-1 mauling to Bayern Munich on Wednesday, we have bounced back by retrieving a point yesterday?
Wenger seemed to think that the draw felt like a win as we were behind for most of the game. He said afterwards: “I think we have shown character today because we were a bit on the ropes and we responded. Every time we have a disappointment I feel we respond well in the game after. ...........Read more
Arsenal could not have reached the Top Four last season if Alexis Sanchez had not been in explosive form in the first half of the season. He practically carried Arsenal when half the team were out injured. Fast forward 12 months, and we yet again have an injury list longer than my arm, but our erstwhile saviour simply doesn’t have the energy to carry us any more. ...........Read more
Arsenal fans will be hoping that the striker who has scored more Premier League goals than any other in 2015 has an off day this weekend. That striker is Harry Kane and he will be leading the line for Tottenham against the Gunners in the latest episode in the long running rivalry that is the north London derby.
But while the Spurs fans sing about him being one of their own, there are those awkward photos of the young Kane in an Arsenal shirt celebrating us winning the title and he was also part of the youth set up with Arsenal when he was very young. ...........Read more
Having defeated Manchester United 3-0 at the Emirates, beaten Leicester 5-2 on the road and knocked arch-rivals Tottenham out of the Capital One Cup, Arsenal’s season is now starting to look very positive. Meanwhile, they are just two points off top spot in the Premier League table.
Here are five games left on the calendar which could be huge when it comes to Arsenal having a very good season or another average campaign. ...........Read more
Arsenal fans will be hoping that Burnley can get something out of their Premier League home game today, because the visitors are our north London rivals Tottenham. Even if the spuds do win later though, they will still be seven points behind us and with Man United in good form it looks like another season in the Europa League for our neighbours.
According to a Daily Star report today, a place in the Champions League is not the only thing that the Gunners will be denying them this year, as the paper reports that Arsene Wenger is preparing to hijack one of their summer transfer deals. ...........Read more
It was not just a bad day for the Arsenal fans who will now have to suffer the taunts of our rivals from down the Seven Sisters road. The away day defeat by Tottenham in the north London derby has left Arsenal in real danger of missing out on a top four finish this season.
Any lingering Premier League title hopes were extinguished as Chelsea beat Aston Villa and now it is all about the top four for Arsene Wenger and the Gunners. But with Southampton grabbing an extra time winner away to QPR and with Man United still to play tomorrow, that is now looking like a tall order. ...........Read more
