Tottenham vs. Arsenal

White Hart Lane

On Sky

Tottenham v. Arsenal

There is not a single other match on the fixture list each season that gets me more excited and nervous at the same time than the two North London Derbies. Forget about form, never mind league position, because none of it matters. A friend of mine told me this week that the reason the games are always close is not because Tottenham plays up to their potential, but instead suddenly, and almost magically, the Spurs players transform into good players against Arsenal.

Vital Thoughts and Quotes:

The race for fourth has completely changed dynamics in the past couple of weeks. No longer is it a duel between two opponents because Chelsea have forced themselves into the mix with horrendous showings of late. Aston Villa fans must be jumping for joy with how this season is turning out for them. Not only is their team performing up with the Sky 4, but unlike in seasons past when a team looked to challenge the four, there is more than one team they can possibly beat out for a Champions League spot. Arsenal has looked bad all season and now the wheels are falling off the Chelsea bandwagon under Luiz Scolari. Combine all this drama with Tottenham Hotspur's relegation battle, and this match should prove to be one for the ages.

Wenger has talked up Adebayor's chance to make an impact in tomorrow's derby. "Adebayor has a good record against Tottenham," said Wenger at Friday`s pre-match press conference. "But we have good players and simply that is the best reason to explain it.'

Surprisingly we have done pretty well defensively and the boss thinks Sagna is a big part of that. "I believe Sagna has had a very good season"

"At one stage we had conceded too many goals, so we encouraged our defenders to be a bit more cautious.'

"A defender does not like to concede goals. When you do and do not win, they become a bit more apprehensive to go forward.'

"Bacary Sagna is a very reliable defender - and if you look at the goals we concede he is one who is the least involved in making mistakes."

Of course the big talk pre-game will be whether Andrey Arshavin will finally make his debut at White Hart Lane, though in red and white of course! 'He is not fit at the moment and I have reservations about playing him in a game of this intensity.

'The worst thing for a player would be to play when you're not ready and get injured before having kicked a ball.

'I will see what kind of shape he is in on Saturday to see if he will play. We are not in a hurry with him.'

Tottenham Team News:

In my opinion Tottenham made a joke of themselves by welcoming back Robbie Keane to the Lane after selling them out not 7 months ago. I don't have a problem with the resigning of Chimbonda and Defoe, but with Keane I found it a bit embarrassing. Nevertheless the bloke is a talented striker who knows how to score, as he already demonstrated at the Emirates with the red Scousers.

David 'I always loved Tottenham' Bentley is suspended for the match, and Alan Hutton will not feature because of a foot injury. Ledley King is on the treatment table as well. No shock there.

Player to watch: Robbie Keane

Not only has Tottenham shaken off the jilting of last summer by welcoming the Irishman back into the squad, but they will be making him their captain for this important match. Only Spurs...only Tottenham.

Though none of this really has anything to do with the game, as he will cause the Arsenal defense havoc with his movement and natural ability.

Arsenal Team News:

Andrey will be included in the squad, though his only involvement will probably be through a substitute role around the 70 minute mark. After being stretchered off last weekend, Abou Diaby has not been included in the squad, and it has yet to be confirmed the extent of the Frenchman's injury. I don't know whether this is good news or what, but Eboue has recovered from whatever forced him to be substituted midway through the first half against West Ham. Eduardo, Rosicky, Cesc, and Theo are still out.

Player to watch: Emmanuel Adebayor

I don't think there is a player in the country who needs a goal as bad as Adebayor. His confidence is extremely low, as he only has scored 3 goals since that 4-4 draw with Spurs back on October 29th. But as we all know, he scores against Spurs. Eight goals in eight matches, and I expect that to be extended on Sunday.

Match Facts & Stats

Home and away

League (inc PL): Spurs 45 wins, Arsenal 59, Draws 39

Prem: Spurs 5 wins, Arsenal 13, Draws 15

at Spurs only

League (inc PL): Spurs 28 wins, Arsenal 23, Draws 20

Prem: Spurs 4 wins, Arsenal 4, Draws 8

Adebayor will be making his 100th Premier League appearance for Arsenal.

Arsenal is undefeated in 10 games, though they have drawn their last three.

Arsenal is 13 points behind where they were last season.

Ref Watch:

The head referee for this one will be Mike Dean. He has managed 18 matches this term, handing out an astonishing 7 reds and 75 yellows. This gives him a 4.56 card per game average.

Match Prediction:

Difficult one to predict, as both teams are erratic and I am not sure how either of us will preform. I will predict my lucky 2-1 win for Arsenal, but I am sure as hell not going to put money on it!

Next Fixtures:

16/2 (Mon)- Cardiff (H)- FA Cup Replay

21/2 (Sat)- Sunderland (H)- Premier League

Will Gareth Bale play, please can we have him?
GoonerLou
The cursed man is in the Tottenham squad
gunnerkid107
hmm...a lil bit of luck wil c us thru. dnt lyk our midfield wit samir on d flanks
gunnerchi
Nasri is our left winger, no problem with that myself.
Tom14
I hope he'll have Wilshire on the bench and give him a run in the last 15 - 20 min to take on a tiering defence, would be a perfect oppertunity to interduce him to the NLD, RvP to get us a goal or two.
Armory
If we beat the Spuds, we're only 3 points off Chelsea, COME ON YOU GUNNERS!!
GoonerLou
After Clichy's mistake in the 4-4, I have good feeling he is going to play a blinder tomorrow and he will really get things started in the attack with his runs.
gunnerkid107
Come on you Gunners wipe that smirk of odd Redknapps face and let's see if he is still the Messiah !
Chix
I really think today is a must-win for us. We need to stay in touch. Sorry for stating the bleeding obvious but felt i needed to get it off my chest!
Gooner_Vin
I've just seen on Arshavin's personal website, he says that Arsene Wenger has put him on the right flank
ArsenalRob
He also says that 'he will be in the stadium' for the match today, does that mean he'll be watching from the stands or from the bench i wonder..
ArsenalRob
I think we all expect him to start on the right, unless he is going to be tested in behind van Persie where we know Nasri has had a big effect.
Tom14
Almunia Sagna Gallas Toure Clichy Eboue Song Denilson Nasri van Persie Adebayor Subs: Fabianski, Eduardo(AHHHHHHH!!!!!!), Ramsey, Djourou, Arshavin(AHHHHHHH!!!!!!), Bendtner, Gibbs.
Tom14
That's the official line-up? Wow! Big performance from the team for Dudu please - maybe a motivational tactic from Arsene on an important day?
ArsenalRob
do any of you have fifa 09, i was gonna ask if Jack or Ramsey are in it, and what their rates are.
collow
Arshavin and eduardo on the bench.
Armory
great news but bad line up, lets hope we win this.
collow
Nasri has to play out of his skin today ..... the strikers won't get any service otherwise!
Rocky7
From all of at Pompey, we wish you all the best. Go spud mashing!
storagematt
...******** rediculios!
Unwell
Eboue is a ******** moron. I was his biggest backer over the booing incident, but his stupidity could cost us this game and drop us right in the *****. *****er.
Rocky7
I just got home. How the hell did Eboue get a 2nd yellow in the 35th minute?! And the 1st one was bcos he's talking too much for Sagna or something?! ARGHHH
GoonerLou
That is pathetic from Eboue.Embarrassment to Arsenal FC
ajwb
Agree Rocky, I felt sorry for him in the past, but now I hope he never plays for the club again. To get sent off for two mistimed tackles is one thing, but getting sent off for two acts of petulance is ridiculous in a game of this importance. He's not got the right temperament to play for us, even AW must see that now.
jubair
Eboue got sent off because he's an idiot, he never learns, always acts like a child and has no idea how to conduct himself on a football pitch. 2 acts of complete petulance has et himself, his manager his team mates and the fans down.
Rocky7
Yeah Rocky, exactly how I'm feeling. Am I an idiot to have stuck up for him?! :(
GoonerLou
Adebayor was a useless piece of *****, and Eboue is a dumbass, useless piece of *****
gunnerkid107
Eboue is a ******** liability and has been for a long time now. It's an absolute joke that Wenger continues with him. How many times does he have to let us down??????
Gooner_Vin
Agreed GK - I don't like to see a player injured but that injury could be our saviour this season. Get Eddie on the pitch.
Rocky7
******** 'boue
ajwb
Adebayor has been a huge pile of donkey poo as usual, I was glad to see him stretchered off. I can't believe how rubbish he has been since he cut his hair last season. Don't blame yourself Lou, we all want give players a fair chance. Eboue has had far too many chances and let us down.
jubair
look on the bright side...this could be the end of Eboue,if Arsene sees some sense
fran merida
Yeah guys, this could be the blessing in disguise (again)...! Bendtner couldn't be worse but we need everybody to keep running for each other to stay in the game with 10 men. Then a couple of good chances (which Nasri, Den and Nick have to work harder to supply), and hope RvP will do something special again.
GoonerLou
i dont think i have ever disliked...(***** it) HATED an Arsenal player before. He has drawn on my last nerve. AGHGGHGGGHHHH. WE CAN STILL DO THIS!!!!!!!!
Youngest in Charge
Why the ***** is no one help Clichy on the left hand side? He's getting 2'd up everytime.
Rocky7
**helping
Rocky7
I can't tell you all just how fuming I am about Eboue
Gooner_Vin
Seriously, I decided to forgive him at half time. Just that I've also finally conceded that he's not good enough for Arsenal. So now I'm just hoping we'll somehow up our game.
GoonerLou
Then you're a better person than me Lou ..... Eboue has had just about his last chance. I'd be happy never to see him play in an Arsenal shirt again.
Rocky7
Well Rocky not that I'm kind or anything lol. I 'decided' to forgive him, I'm still trying hard to do so lol.. But honestly at 24, unless we somehow keep our first-choice players fit and Eboue out of the team, I'd really rather Wenger sign another guy for backup. He's not even good enough as our 2nd-choice.
GoonerLou
Song's out there playing his heart out. Toure is having a shocker in my opinion. Can't believe Djourou didn't start.
gunnerkid107
If we get to the ast 5 minutes at 0-0 do we play safe and go for the draw or throw Eddie or AA on and go for the win?
Rocky7
We've gone from having Henry with his sublime first touch to Ade and Bendtner who can't even control the ball
Gooner_Vin
Think Gallas and Denislon have been excellent today, not much else to be cheerful about.
Rocky7
I hope Mike dean dies of Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, soon. He is everything that is wrong with referees, his inflated sense of self importance leads him to believe he has to put his stamp on the game. The best referees are practically invisible. He destroyed the game.
GunnerBlood
Also Almunia has been excellent
gunnerkid107
Yeah I think Gallas and Den are having a good game. Nasri and Song are trying hard but we need some more creativity in midfield to really help RvP.
GoonerLou
"Same od Arsenal, always cheating" With blood *****ing out of the back of his head. Thick ********s.
Rocky7
Brilliant block Manuel!!
GoonerLou
0-0 FT - Thanks for nothing Eboue you w@nker.
Rocky7
How Eboue is a popular member of the sqaud according to Wenger is beyond me. Surely it must be the end of him? You have to say that the Eboue thing is a poor reflection of Wenger's management. Everyone can see that he's petulant and lazy.
Gooner_Vin
Besides Toure's few mistakes the defense was brilliant. Couldn't of asked for a better defensive showing in the second half. Now bring in AA to the right wing, and pray to god Eboue never sees the field again. We should of bit Athletico's hand off if they made a bid for him.
gunnerkid107
Glad to get a point and avoid defeat to the spuds in the end. I thought Bendtner did a lot better than Adebayor. Our hopes of a CL place are looking more distant tho.
jubair
Hahahha I was watching this show in Hong Kong. One Spud says on TV: "Yay, we didn't lose and will kick them out of the CL spots!" Then a Gooner laughs back: "We gave you a headstart by having like 3 key players out and you still couldn't beat us, ha ha ha!" I didn't know the support is pretty much the same everywhere. lol
GoonerLou
Hey guys, one positive thing: we've matched the old record of staying unbeaten against the same opponents for 19 matches (Villa and Chelsea on 2 occasions). Too bad the Spuds are out of the Cup and so let's break that record the first time we meet them next season.
GoonerLou
William Gallas was absolutely immense out there. His positioning was 1st class, his spirit was that of a man who refused to lose, Just whats required in the NLD. We did as much as we could after that B@rstard Eboue got sent off, he really has no place left at the club anymore his crimesheet is far to long and his lack of quality is so obvious. Also a serious lack of quality in keeping the ball today.
iceman10
a point neither of us wanted fair player to ye playin with 10 men, but from my side poor attackin an wastful
123spurs
The sad thing is Iceman is that Eboue was probably our best player prior to his sending off, he even scored a goal that SHOULD NOT have been disallowed. But you're right, that doesn't make up for anything, how many times has he let us down in these big matches now? Disgrace.
Rocky7
Don't feel too bad 123, your attack wasn't completely poor and wasteful, just that we defended well. :D "We only had 10 men!"
GoonerLou
i supoosed i was a bit biased but our crossin was so poor aagin an ye definded well also what ya think of placiocs i though he was fantastic.
123spurs
Eboue got sent off for displaying the sort of petulance that was almost routine in Vieira at one time - and led to red cards for him too. Problem is that Eboue doesn't have anything like the quality of Vieira with which to excuse it.
Amos.
aboue started well but he got over heated he kep naggin the ref an at that he was wrong ref to nag, he sent off most in prem
123spurs
We would be so much better if Kolo got rid of his half-afro and Ade got his braid/dreadlocks back, maybe a couple of mohawks would be good. Djourou and RvP have been great since they got theirs...
ArsenalRob
Oh no, it seems I missed Eboue's goal that got wrongly ruled out. Again, it's a combination of sheer bad luck and our own mischief that cost us the points. I'm not a 'what if' person but I just wonder if we played with 11 men, would Arsene have sent on Dudu or AA towards the end? We played well against all odds.. :(
GoonerLou
123 - I thought Palacious was excellent ..... I wonder how much Wenger could have gotten him for. A real work horse. I'd hazzard a guess that for all these sentimental signings Spurs have made Palacious will be the one to keep you up.
Rocky7
Yeah Palacios is clearly one of the best players in your team, if not the best. He played really well today, although perhaps tried to impress a bit too much towards the end. Great player though. Another "Wenger-Reject" doing great in the Prem.
ArsenalRob
The sad thing is I'm actually relieved to get a point, that's what spurs do to you. Had we had Defoe's finishing we would have won today but credit to you guys, Arsenal defended brilliantly don't know why before kick-off I thought you back line were big softies. A point was no good for either of us
Phartman87
I would be disapointed if I were a Spurs fan Phartman (god forbid ... lol) you had the lions share of possession and many more opportunities. I'm just *****ed off with Eboue.
Rocky7
Fair point about the hairstyles Rob - now that I'm also looking at Carlton Cole's mohawk, and he's scored in 5 straight games or something? :D
GoonerLou
Rocky, you can tell 'Arry felt the same disappointment too. Btw Ade's out for 3 weeks according to Setanta's estimation: http://www.setanta.com//uk/Articles/Football/2009/02/08/Prem-Adebayor-injury/gnid-39259/
GoonerLou
It also says that he's our top scorer though, but that's RvP isn't it? Probably an estimation - wanting to be first with the news, but not actually knowing the full story.
ArsenalRob
Eboues been doing this for years and sadly I think he'll continue to. The one weakness in Wengers management is his unwillingness to really get stuck into his own players but Eboue certainly needs a kick up the arse
Phartman87
three weeks seems official now... fair enough then... excuse my synicism
ArsenalRob
But another Wenger reject who hes massivley underestimated like Diarra, Upson, Bentley and someone who would walk into your first XI. Dont give us the old "Arsenal Reject" baloney. Id be rather upset if i were you that Wenger decided to keep hold of Eboue, Bendtner, Diaby etc and not opt for Palacios
HuddersfieldYiddo
I was impressed with Sagna and Gallas today, you looked really solid and i dont think wed have scored in another 90mins. Think ul nip 4th of Chelsea still, keep the faith jockeys!!!
HuddersfieldYiddo
HuddersfieldYiddo, you're completely correct, I'm just using the term loosely. Palacios and Diarra would be in our team now, rather than Song, Diaby and probably Denilson too, they didn't stay only because our midfield was crowded, and didn't look as though they were going to get many games here.
ArsenalRob
I wouldn't say HY is completely correct, infact he is largely wrong. Diarra, Upson & Bentley were not massively underestimated by Wenger, indeed he wanted to keep all three of them but against their better judgement they wanted to move on and AW is not the kind of person to stand in the way of a footballers career. Palacious could certainly be an oversight though.
Rocky7
Its annoying because he(eboue) put in a really good performance, probably our best player on the pitch up until he got sent off. He was strong, direct and looked like a threat. He then lets himself down by being a petulant tw*t. I was sitting down with my mate after he got his first yellow card for going on and on at the ref and saud "i bet he gets sent off". I wasnt let down, and he is closing in on his last chance in my opinion. Perhaps that was it.
paul_ownz
Rocky, he's not completely true about Palacios either. When he came for a trial, we had Cesc, Denilson, Gilberto, Flamini, Diaby in CM, plus Rosicky, Hleb, Song and Djourou (DM) who're also able to and/or wanted to play in CM last year. Arsene did rate Palacios but again, it's a case of a player needing games which Arsene couldn't give everyone so he opted out at the time. He thought he's good enough for the PL so he recommended him to Bruce.
GoonerLou
i think song was very solid today,won the ball, distributed it without fuss and kept his mouth shut when the ref blew for fouls
fran merida
I actually thought Song was useless. He was to slow to close down the ball and therefore kept getting bypassed with a simple pass. No positional sense whatsoever. He was in the box at one point and no awareness of Keane behnd him with a likely cross coming in. Eboue is a stupid man. Ade doesn't even bother to try. How many times was he in midfield with the ball about to be crossed by our wide guys. No point crossing if there is nothing to aim at?
Gael-Force
Denilson is a good player but he is in no man's land. I don't know what his game is in the team. He's not as good offensively as Cesc and he is not as good defensively as Flamini. He's a decent all-rounder, consistent but i just don't know whether he has the final pass or the crunch tackle. Neither as today i don't recall a tackle in midfield. He got his work permit on 'exceptional talent' rules. I'm waiting to see that.
Gael-Force
Denilson had a poor game today, but he was immense alongside Fabregas in a defined role as the more defensive of the two. Now Denilson is being forced to be creative because he is alongside Song and the sack of ***** Eboue. If he is put there as a DM he plays well enough, but without any defined creative player alongside him he looks poor.
Tom14
And Denilson did a lot of tackles today. But is anyone else started to become encompassed by rage at the pathetic media analysis? Every single game we play you hear "Arsenal are not at their USUAL best today", you think, this is EVERY game! Why do they not pick up on the fact that we are just not at that level? Then you hear "Arshavin is another creative little player like Nasri and..." then they move on without saying anything more. It is getting very effing annoying. This pathetic analysis fuels the idiots with crap opinions.
Tom14
To get a draw with 10 men is fantastic, we could have won tis game on numerus occasions. Gallasd was a giant for us and Almunia proved his worth.
Armory
I cannot wait for Eduardo and Arshavin to come back into the team. Two World Class footballers replacing pretty average players. All we need then is to have another World Class player in Fabregas replacing Song and a World Class defender and goalkeeper replacing Toure and Almunia.
Tom14
anyone wanna remind me what solar system wenger comes from??? i think it was clear to the entire world that arsenal where dominated from start to finish today, but yet he still feels the opposite!!!! reminds me of when he said the better side lost when we done you 5-1 ffs!!!....a very good manager, but has to be the most ungracious loser around!!! (p.s thanks so much for not signing palacious!!! ran the midfield and constantly broke up your play! looks a bargain at 12mil)
lillywhites101
Tom14 what the ***** is wrong with Almunia? he got us a point to nite and has been brilliant for us all season.
Armory
Wenger is a top manager and nearly has it right, but he has made a few mistakes and rated a few players too highly. I personally think that we need Arshavin to fit into the midfield, Eduardo to fit alongside van Persie and then find the right partner for Fabregas when he comes back (I think that Denilson could easily be that man). If he does that, we can maybe consider changing goalkeeper and then partner Djourou with the right player (Gallas for me). Almunia; Sagna Gallas Djourou Clichy; Arshavin Fabregas Denilson Nasri; van Persie Eduardo is 100 times better than the team we had out today.
Tom14
Almunia made a save that any goalkeeper would have made. He does not save the ones that Lehmann would make.
Tom14
lillywhites101 You could not beat us when we went down to ten men, infact you have not beaten us for a long time, u are prime for the drop, good luck in the championship next year.
Armory
When will the "Spuds Glory: 0-0 at WHL" DVD come out?
GoonerLou
Tom14 Her came out for every ball to nite, his shot stopping was spot on and he talked to his defenders all the time, what the ***** more do you want? he has been let down by his defence on so many occasions, by Gallas, Clichy and the rest
Armory
I want World Class saves. I want a better goalkeeper.
Tom14
But Tom you got a world class save to nite, what is your problem?
Armory
Tom, just to make my position clear for me there where two giants playing for Arsenal to nite, Gallas and Almunia, we can complain as much as we want but what counts is heart and fighting spirit and those two had it in abundance to nite.
Armory
One normal goalkeeping save does not make me think that a goalkeeper is World Class. I like Almunia as a goalkeeper, but he does not touch most top team's keepers. And Gallas was a beast for us today. A monster, as usual.
Tom14
Amory u must be *****ed of that your days of turning us over are well and truely finished!!! welcome to the uefa cup!!!!
lillywhites101
Welcoming us as if you will be in it next year! Palacious had a good game I wont dispute that but its the usual spud delusion of making 1 game wonders legends in your own tiny minds like the flying Winger Jose Dominguez or the yet to win a league game Gareth Bale. Come back and talk to me once he has played at that level over a sustained period of time. Wenger is an ungracious loser no doubt but guess what we didnt lose today! I know a 0-0 feels like a win to you lot lillywhites because its 10 years since you took 3 points off of us.
iceman10
Owned....lol
gunnerkid107
If you (spurs) lose your next game away to Hull (who beat you at home), mathmatically you could be joint bottom. For some strange reason which I'm yet to understand, you guys are happy about this result. Its just another draw in a ROTTEN run of form for you. You're probably only happy because its Arsenal. Had it been against say Middleborough today instead of us, maybe you wouldn't be happy. Maybe you'd be thinking about the relegation dog fight you're in. Only 1/4 of the season left.
ian7
owned????......how often do arsenal beat us these days??? with afew seconds left you couldnt even do it at the immigrants stadium....i know we didnt win today but we mauled you for the full duration....you where dominated from start to finish..end of...and as i said earlier, welcome to the uefa cup! LOL no shame in it lads!
lillywhites101
How often do we beat you these days? Well we beat you twice in four games last year and its 2 draws this year. The excitement you show at having an unbeaten season against us is laughable.....You could release a DVD about it names "the 2ers" witness the memorable unbeaten run from the 2008/09 season.
iceman10
Mauling? You had more possesions against 10 players, but created what exactly? 1 Chance for Modric and once chance for Keane. Not exactly mauling considering your playing with an extra man
paul_ownz
I love the ''how often do you beat us these days'' brag by a spud who's team have failed to take 3 points off us in a decade!!! LOL
MrArsenal
I'd like to remind lillywhite that yesterday Arsenal broke the record for the longest unbeaten league sequence in a North London derby. 19 games and counting since you took 3 points off of us.
Little Dutch
With all due respect guys, if you are honest spurs were all over arsenal yesterday. It isn't the first time 11 men have struggled to break down 10 men is it? i am sure that has happened to arsenal several times. When a player is sent off it often makes the rest of the team work harder for each other which i think was the case yesterday. So to say spurs were poor etc isn't really a true reflection of the game. Saying all that though your defence was brilliant and that is why we struggled in the final third. It is more about being honest really. In my own opinion this feels more like a defeat as i think we gifted you the point and should have won. We deserved the victory but fair play to arsenal as you worked amazingly hard and got the point. As for records etc, anyone can point to stats and records but it just masks your own problems so i would suggest you guys now divert your attention to picking up enough points to secure CL football for next year but by all means if it makes you feel better thinking of all these amazingly impressive records then so be it. Good luck for the rest of the season guys (meant sincerely as well).
spursfan4eva
I would suggest diverting your attention from Vital Arsenal and towards getting enough points to stay in the Prem, and not the CL which you all seemed so sure you'd be playing in next year.
TPowell
spursfan4eva - You would love to have our "problems" face it.
LondonGooner
The souvenir mugs and DVD’s of their two 4-4 and 0-0 victories over Arsenal will be out soon.
