Arsenal’s winning run was ended by Leicester City on Tuesday. It looked certain to become our fifth consecutive win before we lost our momentum due to the red card dished out to substitute Eddie Nketiah.
In all, I saw more positives than negatives despite the result, and I am pretty confident that we can beat Tottenham on Sunday.
We will be taking on a Spurs side that has struggled with inconsistency since the restart.
I know that each team will get better as the games come by, but I am also very aware that our team has improved so much that we can beat anyone.
Against Leicester City, our players showed a willingness to commit to every loose ball as well as the desire to win the game.
I had expected the game to be a very close one, however, we showed greater initiative and until we had the red card, the Foxes struggled to carve out a meaningful chance from the game.
We have also beaten a Wolves team that had been unbeaten since the restart.
The Wanderers are one of the most coordinated teams in the Premier League, yet we proved to them that we are a better side and that we can deal with any kind of pressure.
Leicester City is just one of those days that your best isn’t good enough, but I am pretty confident that we would get all three points against Tottenham for a few simple reasons.
We are in better form, we are more of a team, we play more positive football, there will be no home fans and we have the better players now.
So, forget the two dropped points against the Foxes and focus on the three points we will pick up in the Tottenham v Arsenal North London derby on Sunday.
