Tottenham. There are no such occasions as friendlies when it’s Tottenham. Whether it’s the Mind Series or it’s the good old days of Robet Pires in his pomp, Arsenal vs Tottenham is a game to savour.
It hasn’t been much of an enjoyable visit making the short journey north of late. Not in the past seven away visits has victory been clinched. That’s far too long.
Pre-season had been relatively enjoyable up until the Chelsea defeat as despite no victories in Scotland against Hibernian or Rangers, the form and fitness of the team was steadily improving.
Thomas Partey’s injury was a huge blow building up towards the Premier League curtain-raiser away at Brentford, while the defeat on home soil to the Blues wasn’t especially enjoyable either. But it’s only pre-season, right?
Amid the daunting task of shipping out a wealth of players and trying to considerably improve the squad with new additions, all the fans’ anguishes and concerns can be briefly put aside for the four mile journey to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Nuno Espirto Santo’s side have their own transfer ongoings to be dealing with at present, with Harry Kane trying to force a move to Manchester City this summer to satisfy his taste for silverware, something he is only familiar with when it comes to methods with which to eat his food.
Having clawed their way back from a 2-0 half-time deficit at Stamford Bridge to draw 2-2 in their opening Mind Series match, there is the possibility of another Audi Cup-style moment to tell the grandchildren for Spurs on Sunday.
As for Arsenal, they can claim the incredible spoils of this prestigious competition if they beat Tottenham and score four or more goals. It’s a big ask but victory is all that truly matters in this one. Who cares about fitness so long as everyone stays fit?
North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal square off in an intriguing pre-season clash on Sunday, just five days before the 2021/22 Premier League campaign gets underway.
The pair finished within just a point of each other last season, with Tottenham claiming seventh, and therefore a place in the inaugural Europa Conference League play-off round, ahead of Arsenal in eighth.
Though it’s technically the first non-competitive north London derby since 1990, the pair will reignite their rivalry once more, going head-to-head in their final pre-season outing, before Tottenham host Manchester City in their opener, while Arsenal will get the Premier League campaign underway with a Friday night trip to Brentford.
