Tottenham adjusting to change of status in north London

Tottenham adjusting to change of status in north London

It shouldn't be forgotten that it was Arsenal which ended last season with a trophy - the FA Cup - and Tottenham's critics argue that Mauricio Pochettino's team need to win silverware as a form of validation of its progress.

'The more he plays, the more consistently he plays for the duration of games the more goals he is going to score.

Although, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is insistent that his side are not "underdogs" going into this weekend's clash.

A day after Tottenham achieved a coming-of-age 3-1 win over European champion Real Madrid in the Champions League in front of more than 80,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium, Arsenal was laboring to a 0-0 draw at home to Red Star Belgrade in the oft-maligned Europa League.

While Tottenham have begin to redress the balance in north London after years of Arsenal domination, they are without a victory at the Emirates for seven years.

Cech added: "They've been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression".

Morgan, who is also known for his passionate rants about Arsene Wenger on Twitter, once claimed in 2015 that Harry Kane was not even good enough to get on Arsenal's bench. That might not happen this season. Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title. We were under pressure the last couple of years, with people talking about winning trophies.

Indeed, Tottenham have dropped 37 points from leading positions in Premier League games against Arsenal, more than any other side has against another in the competition's history. We must respect them. "Although the season was not always what we wanted, we always had a trophy at the end of it".

Kane has scored in his last five games against Arsenal.

Spurs go in to the showdown at the Emirates as slight favourites, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli both back from injury.

Arsenal's record signing has only completed 90 minutes once since his summer arrival but Wenger says there is no lack of trust.
