Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Saturday’s north London derby with Tottenham will bring the best out of his side.

The Gunners still remain in the hunt for the title and currently sit third in the Premier League – six points adrift of league leaders Leicester with 10 games left to play.
Arsenal travel to Tottenham, who are second in the table with a three-point advantage over the Gunners, with the pressure growing after Wednesday’s defeat to Swansea.

Wenger’s side have failed to win in four matches in all competitions since beating the Foxes on February 14 and punters using their free bet may want to back Arsenal to get back on track with a victory.

The Frenchman insists the Gunners are preparing in the same way they would for any other outing.

Wenger said: “It will bring out the best in them and I’m confident that it will be very vocal. Of course, what matters is what goes on, on the pitch.

“We have players who have played everywhere in Europe, in very vocal places, and when you have the right performance we have always got the right result.

“It is a big game and an important one. We prepare for every single game with the same intensity, the same focus and there are not a lot of special things to do. Maybe the impact and consequences on the table are more significant but the preparation is the same.”
