Arsenal v Tottenham

Arsenal has momentum. The Gunners' locomotive just ran over Villareal with no problem. The result in that game should have been 2 – 0 but Thierry Henry’s goal was illegitimately taken off of the board. On the 15th they dispatched West Brom 3 – 1 in a stellar showing of talent and execution.

Since a birth in next year’s Champions League competition is up for grabs in this Saturday’s Arsenal – Tottenham: meeting, one must look almost entirely at each teams’ motivations to play. The question is who will be hungriest. Given that Arsenal is playing in this years CL competition and just had a nice win, they are going to come out motivated. As one of the last matches at Highbury, Arsenal should come to play and take care of an unimpressive Tottingham. Oh, and the gunners have Tottenham beat in almost every statistical category: .

Arsenal: 1 – 0 Tottenham:

Big match, given what is on the line. I do think that Arsenal have the edge, but Tottenham have been playing pretty damned well too. And almost anything can happen in a derby match. Can't wait to see what happens in this one.

Should be a good match. For the first time in i dunno how long, BOTH teams are playing for something. I think it will be a 1-1 draw. I can see Arsenal winning 1-0 its hard to call. As a neutral i cant wait for this match!!!

Well, you were right, 1-1. It's gonna be hard now. We may have to qualify Liverpool-style.

Arsenal didn't play too bad, but Tottenham played pretty solidly as well. Wasn't too happy how the Spurs goal transpired, but it happened. Just because one coach believes in fair play doesn't mean they all do. It didn't help that Febregas, Eboue, and Henry all started on the bench, but I understand why. It does make it tougher, but its not impossible.

Any for anyone thinking that Arsenal finishing 4th or 5th is tragic, consider that they have yet to finish lower than 2nd in the Prem under Wenger. Thats amazing consistency. This year is going to be a bit disappointing, unless they do win the CL, but a bit disappointing is something every supporter has to put up with now and again. Keeps us from being too spoiled.
