Wenger Insists On Arsenal’s Quality Despite Tottenham Record

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has insisted on the quality of his team despite the awful record his side has got against London rivals, Tottenham in recent times.

The Gunners have played six games without a win against Tottenham and will hope on putting an end to that in today (Saturday’s) game at the Emirates.

The last time Arsenal defeated Spurs in the league was on March 16, 2014, when Tomas Rosicky’s second-minute strike earned a 1-0 victory for the Gunners at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham have won twice and held them four times since then, and that run without a victory remains Arsenal’s longest against their rivals in league competition.

With Arsenal winning their last 10 Premier League games at the Emirates, their longest winning run at home, the French manager says his team will not be underdogs in today’s London derby.

In his press conference, Arsene Wenger bristled at the suggestion that Arsenal are underdogs heading into the match with their arch rivals.

“I think Tottenham are a good side but we have the quality to win this game and that’s what we want to show,” he said, perhaps more out of hope than expectation.

“In the table, we need to make some ground up on the top teams. But at home, we have been strong.”
