NORTH LONDON DERBY

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Arsenal - (Kane 49)

Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side are the deserved winners of the 195th north London derby due to Harry Kane’s fantastic header! Jack Wilshere angrily challenged a smiling Lamela, but the two were pulled apart at the end of a hard-fought match on a rain-soaked afternoon. Spurs were the better team in the second half. As a result, Tottenham go into third place, seven points clear of their bitter rivals Arsenal who remain in sixth. A top-four finish for Arsenal is still a possibility, but they’ll need to keep winning in the Europa League, just in case.

Arsenal and Tottenham fans showed up ready for an exciting clash and the atmosphere was red hot for one of the classic fixtures in the English Premier League football season. Tottenham wore their famous Spurs logo white shirts and dark blue shorts, while Arsenal wore their storied red tops with white sleeves and white breeks. 

Both club managers were interviewed prior to the first North London Derby at Wembley for a quarter of a century.

“It is more than just a north London derby, it has a big importance in the table,” said Arsene Wenger about the derby. “We have some ground to make up. We have an opportunity to do it today, and we want to show we are capable to do it. Aaron Ramsey is injured and could not participate. We are an attacking team, bit I have put one more defensive midfielder in. Jack Wilshere was sick but I hope he is back to his level, he had a good training week. But we only know during competition.”

“Always we try to decide the best player for every game,” said Mauricio Pochettino about his squad selection. “But the team played so well against Manchester United and Liverpool, I could go in with the same players. I can trust them. Toby Alderweireld needs to build fitness, it is so important to have Alderweireld, but it is about level of fitness and who is ready to compete in big games. There is no doubt that the team that is going to play is the best team. It is difficult for Lucas Moura, arriving from a different league to adapt. He must build his fitness and get to know his team-mates. If he can contribute and help us, fantastic; if not, he can wait to show his quality.”

Squads

Argentinean Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur and Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal had options in attack going into the derby. The signing of Lucas Moura, return of Erik Lamela and recent excellence of Heung-min Son gave Spurs boss Pochettino decisions to make to start the game, game-changers on the bench. Arsenal No. 1 goalkeeper Petr Cech was passed fit for Saturday's North London Derby against Tottenham Hotspurs at Wembley Stadium. The experien veteran goalie was forced off with a calf problem in the Gunners’ win over Everton but returned to training on Friday ahead of the match. Nacho Monreal also started after illness but Aaron Ramsey missed out on the 18-man squad due to a groin injury. Lucas Moura is on the bench for Spurs while Toby Alderweireld missed out.


 

Tottenham Hotspur

Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen Davies, Dier, Dembele, Alli, Eriksen, Kane, Son. Subs: Rose, Lamela, Wanyama, Vorm, Sissoko, Aurier, Lucas Moura.

Harry Kane rises to head home.

To date, Arsenal have won 9 consecutive games at Wembley Stadium. That’s more than the Spurs have won in their temporary home. Having scored five last week. Arsenal were confident going into the derby. It may be too late to save this season, but Arsenal have options and alternatives in attack. The only match the Spurs have lost in any competition since the end of November was at the home of the champions elect, Manchester City. Tottenham have won 13 of their last 16 home games and haven’t conceded at Wembley in over a month.

Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur - North London Derby

Andres Villas Boas, Tottenham Hotspur manager, has praise for Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger ahead of the Spurs clash with at Emirates Stadium on Saturday. The Spurs have a one-point advantage over Arsenal going into the "North London Derby" one of the most anticipated fixtures this season. Great tickets are still available

Some Gunner fans are critisizing Wenger this season.

"It's the nature of humans," said Villas-Boas, whose team have lost three of their past four league games. "When you are in one place, you always are willing for a change or are prepared to change to something positive. But when change happens, you see what you were missing at first. I certainly feel that he has delivered what Arsenal want for the last years and he continues to be one of the great managers.

"Last year was the same. He has raised the expectations by being a winner in the past and what Arsenal fans expect is seeing trophies and seeing them back where Wenger put them in the past. Certainly, he might be paying the price for the expectations that he arose."

"The results in the two derbies can have a big influence on the qualifying spots for the Champions League," Wenger said. "It's important to beat Tottenham and it has as well an emotional impact but the main target of the season is not to finish above Tottenham, it's to finish at least in the top four. It's not only Tottenham but other teams who can be in front of us.

Wenger likes Arsenal fans to be happy.

"What affects me is that our fans are not happy. It doesn't stop me from doing what I do on the football pitch, but my biggest desire is to see our fans happy, and the players as well. That's not an excuse not to play your game. I believe that our fans will be behind us without any problem.

"I understand the logic of it. It's not that the guys are against you as an individual. They want you to win the game and you represent the guy who can make them happy, so that's part of it, but we haven't done too badly and we'll do it again. We have finished every year in a good position."
