Wenger Reveals Why he Loves Playing Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal will be taking on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday and ahead of the North-London derby, Arsene Wenger has revealed what he loves about the tie.

The Arsenal rivals have not lost any of their last 10 league games and the Frenchman expects to feel same tense atmosphere as the ones we have seen in previous meetings with Spurs.

“They have been a threat every year since I’ve been here,” he said. “In the last 20 years, they always had very strong teams and let’s not forget that some periods we were eight or nine points behind them in April, so they have had very strong teams.

“This year they are younger, they work very hard and they will be a tough opponent again - they are every year.

“I enjoy [the derby] because I believe that what you want in football is to play games that are important and where there is an excitement in the preparation, games that have meaning for everybody.

“Football can give special emotions to people and you want to be part of that.”

Wenger will take charge of his 46th game against Tottenham and will hope to get a similar result to the one Arsenal got when they visited White Hart Lane earlier in the season.
