Van Persie – Spurs are good, but Arsenal HAVE to win!

Arsenal’s captain (and superhuman goalscorer) Robin Van Persie is under no illusions that it will be easy for the Gunners to beat their arch-rival’s Tottenham on Sunday, but he is certain that nothing less than all three points will do for Arsenal.

He said: “What better way to set things straight again than to beat Spurs?

“I’d 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.
