Arsenal fans all say the same ahead of North London derby against Spurs
Arsenal fans desperately want their club to beat Spurs in the North London derby – to help them capitalize on their rivals’ results on Saturday.
The Gunners host Tottenham on Sunday, ahead of the game after back-to-back wins over Norwich and Burnley.
These wins have helped the club move up the Premier League table after reaching the bottom of the international break without any points following losses to Brentford, Chelsea and Man City.
But a win could see them climb into the first half of the table and just five points off the top after Man City beat Chelsea, Man United lost to Aston Villa and Liverpool drew Brentford on Saturday.
This means fans are now pushing even more to earn three valuable points against their fierce rivals on Sunday.
Here’s what Arsenal fans are saying on social media.
@fuad_el_arabi: “I hope Arsenal don’t screw things up in the derby … we need to capitalize and close the gap as soon as possible … we usually fail to win when the teams above us lose, j ‘hope it doesn’t tomorrow. ”
@ Greenwitch44: “For real it’s extremely important that we get 3 points tomorrow, I don’t care how we do it.”
@_Txnz: “Arsenal usually don’t capitalize when teams lose points, but an exception must be made tomorrow. NLD too big to screw up.”
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is again available for selection ahead of the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Switzerland international has not played for the Gunners since being sent off in the first half of their 5-0 loss to Manchester City less than a month ago.
Kieran Tierney, Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny would all have to get rid of their fitness issues to be in contention to start the game.
