Wenger suggests English players are now 'masters' at diving

  • Deal close Arsenal star set to agree new long-term deal after Ozil signs contract

The pair enjoyed comfortable home debuts in last weekend's 5-1 rout of Everton but their local rivals are sure to provide tougher opposition as the two teams continue their bids for Champions League qualification.

Wenger won a Premier League title at White Hart Lane, but may not mourn its demise.

The Belgian's confidence to drive into midfield sets a natural press out of the back and forces sides into retreat and against Arsenal, who struggle to set their defensive lines, that could free space for the likes of Eriksen, Alli and Son Heung-min.

Despite their poor form on the road results-wise, Arsenal have failed to score in just one of their last 10 matches away from home in the Premier League. It is little wonder Wenger said he would prefer to play at the national stadium.

"We feel we have a good level of performance at Wembley". They surged into a four-goal lead in 37 minutes against Everton. Mkhitaryan started on the left flank but drifted infield and created two goals from the right flank, including one for Aubameyang, who generally played in inside-left positions, and tested the opposition defence with his speed in behind. But Arsenal risk being overrun, especially if Aaron Ramsey, fresh from a hattrick, makes lots of storming midfield runs and leaves Xhaka exposed.

"It gives a new hope when fresh players come in", he added. That they are players of the calibre of Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang has fostered optimism at a club where pessimism became ingrained, at least among the support.




Tottenham vs Arsenal is almost upon us!

"Our strikers are top class as well and we want them to express their talent".

"No decision. Still no decision", Pochettino said, when asked if Alderweireld would feature.

The Spain worldwide appears to have overcome that concern though, and should be fit to take his place in Arsene Wenger's side and look to continue the good personal form he had chalked up in recent weeks.

But Arsene Wenger's side produced arguably their performance of the season to-date as goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez sealed all three points for the hosts. The 35-year-old hasn't trained this week but reports suggest he'll be fit so I think Cech will once again start between the sticks with David Ospina on the bench.

But what has changed since that day in the red side of north London? talkSPORT traces the development of each side's season over the last north London derby. They even defeated Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid at their temporary home in this season's UEFA Champions League campaign.
