Last week Tottenham lost to Chelsea and Tim Sherwood came out and questioned his players commitment and performance levels. Can the Tottenham players bounce back and show both the fans and their manager that there is indeed fight in this group of players? There is no bigger game for a Tottenham player than facing their north lond rivals Arsenal, it will of course be extra special for Emmanuel Adebayor who started out in England with arsenal. Without Adebayor Tottenham would not even be close to the top four and there is no doubt Sherwwod will be looking to Adebayor and Soldado to bring the goals to beat Arsenal.
After bowing out of the Champions League midweek Arsene Wenger knows his Arsenal team must continue to win games to gurantee a spot in the top four. With a tough schedule over the next four weeks Arsenal could enf up outside the top four if they lose the next three against Tottenham, Man City and Chelsea. Wenger will look to Giroud, Cazorla and Ozil to prodvide the inspiration for the Gunners. This is a really huge game in the start of a really tough schedule. The question now is can Arsenal stay the course?
Huge game here for both clubs, I think its going to be tight and tense. White Hart Lane will be hopping and the question is can Tottenham bounce back from a couple of poor performances. Arsenal played midweek in an energy sapping game against a great Bayern Munich team. Spurs played on Thursday in the Europa League in a really tough game against Benfica. I think both of these games will have an effect. I'm going to take both teams to cancel each other out here and the game to finish in a draw. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
