I'd be disappointed if we didn't leave with all 3 points. They've seemed to give up on the top 4 now judging by the reactions of the players and manager yesterday but this is a derby match and we haven't won there in a while.

Hope Ramsey is fit for this, even if he's rusty he's better than anyone else we've got in that position so I'd play him as long as he is fully fit.

Yeah 3 points is a must. We won't win the title but it'll be nice to keep the push going for the rest of the season

If we win then our title hopes are still alive and fourth place is all but guaranteed, but a draw/ loss and we're out of it.

Szczesny
Sagna - Mertesacker - Koscielny - Gibbs
Arteta - Ramsey
Chamberlain - Ozil - Cazorla
Giroud

Fabianski
Jenkinson
Vermaelen
Flamini
Rosicky
Podolski
Sanogo

I think the team pretty much picks itself. If Ramsey's not back I'd start with Flamini alongside Arteta.

If the Chavs can beat them we can beat them. They'll be well up for it though...

I am not an eternal optimist. I am a realistic sort of guy. Title is lost already imho. Tottenham are there to be taken but they are playing at White hart lane and they are going to be super motivated to beat us no matter the circumstances. My heart says we will win but my mind says it is going to be a high scoring draw. It would be interesting to see the team Wenger picks on Tuesday against Bayern which can have lot of says on both our physical and mental preparation for the NLD.

Our form has been dismal in the league. We beat Sunderland but lost away to Stoke, got spanked by Liverpool, drew against a hapless out of form, out of sorts United at the Emirates. We need to get our tactics right cos they have the players to hurt us. We simply cannot go out and commit forward the sort of numbers we did against Everton cos it can really backfire. This games is going to be a high tempo end to end stuff and playing Arteta in this one will not be a wise idea. I hope Ramsey is back for this and i want him to partner Flamini in the middle of the park. As i said the game against Bayern is more of a distraction than a help.

I dont know. I think they will be shitting it personally. They are under pressure atm. Their 4th place chances are slipping, sherwood went off on one quite publicly and they will be nervous as f**k trying not to make those same horrendous mistakes they did against chelsea
They could respond to the drama, but they havent really had a track record of comebacks after setbacks this season.

I still think we can win the title, we're only 4 points behind and there's still enough games to make up the gap.
I think Wenger got the tactics spot on against Everton by pinning their fullbacks back and exploiting space left in behind and I think adopting similar tactics against Spurs will work considering how big a liability Kyle Walker is. Flamini looks worse than Arteta in fast paced games IMO, he was poor yesterday and against City earlier on this season both in end to end games. Arteta does a better job than Flamini at stopping the counter too, Flamini seemed to stop doing this after his yellow yesterday. I'd start Flamini against Bayern because they'd probably have more of the ball and he has a better engine.

Hope you're right. As Keane said after the FA cup game against them, "Tottenham will always let you down" :lol:
