    I dreamt we took the lead before half time, but ended up losing 6-1. We need more badgers.

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wary of refreshed Arsenal in derby

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino feels Arsenal have the advantage of some extra rest ahead of Sunday's north London derby.

    The clash at the Emirates will be Spurs' third game in seven days after they recorded consecutive wins over Aston Villa on Monday and then Anderlecht on
    Thursday in the Europa League.

    Both matches went the distance as Harry Kane scored late to end Villa's second-half comeback before Mousa Dembele sank the Belgians with a goal three minutes from time

    Arsenal were also in Champions League action on Wednesday as they were hammered 5-1 at Bayern Munich but, returning to London on Thursday morning, Arsene Wenger's men have enjoyed an extra day's recovery ahead of this weekend's crunch meeting.

    "I don't want to put out the idea they have an advantage in the game," Pochettino said.

    "But it is true when you play against Anderlecht in the Europa League, it is very difficult to play Thursday and Sunday.

    "Then when you play Monday against a very motivated team like Aston Villa and you need to run and suffer a lot, it is one day less to recover. You are always late to prepare for the game.

    "We are a young squad and sometimes we run a lot and sometimes the effort we make is a lot. But I am not complaining.

    "It is not an excuse. We are very strong in our mind and the way we showed character on Thursday and Monday showed we are ready to try 100 per cent to win the game."

    Spurs, unbeaten in 10 league games, are currently five points behind second-placed Arsenal in the table and Sunday is an opportunity for both sides to lay down a marker.

    "The derby is always a different game," Pochettino said. "You need to play with your heart and passion. I know what it means to our supporters.

    "It's not important the past, it's how you take the game and we arrive in very good form.

    "We have to be ready and be strong in our mind and try to win the game because we know what the derby means."

    Top man!

    All I've seen and read today from pundits and bookies is that we're going to lose, I saw 2 bookies going for 4-0 Arsenal !!

    Seriously wtf, I fancy our chances tomorrow, its an NLD adrenalin will get us through the tiredness plus the fact they have 8 or 9 injuries whereas we don't

    2-1 Spurs

    Wash your mouth out ;) you know that the ref is always to blame if/when we lose. Some fans always have to blame someone.

    Looking at the low goal count today I predict that there will be a lot of goals tomorrow and I'll go for a 4-4

    With the Goons seriously weakened down their right flank I would seriously consider starting with the pace and skill of Son down our left

    I think we need to attack their flanks. We need to remain solid in the centre and use pace and trickery on the wings, that is the best way to attack them. Plus get a midfield runner to occupy Koscielny, so that Kane can have fun against Mertesacker.

    Villa. And I sort of agree about Alli, not just the past two games, but not yet. Imagine dumping him for Mason and we get battered.

    fudge! I'm so nervous for this game! Can't say I have a good feeling about it. + I have an exam to finish this week, and if we lose I'm not gonna be able to do anything for days! So basically I'm fudged. Unless we trash them of course.

    I agree that changing Alli for Mason seems like a decent plan. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. His long term development can be managed just fine even if he starts today. A part of the inconsistency expected with young players is that they can have one off games and return to form quickly.

    Always more nervous than excited before the NLD I think...

    Nope. Trashing them means hours and days spent in a haze of happiness unable to focus on anything else ;)
