Arsenal will host Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium, Sunday (25/9/2021). For the hosts, the match provided an opportunity to improve the rankings.
The Gunners are currently still stranded in 13th place in the 2021/2022 Premier League standings with six points from five matches. Arsenal have so far recorded two wins and three losses.
This caught Arteta’s attention. He mentioned many important things at stake in the match later. That’s why, he keeps reminding the players how important the duel against Spurs is.
“They (Arsenal players) know that (how important the game against Tottenham is). I will make sure they understand what that means. The history between the two teams and where it came from. Then, what is the emotional impact on the fans,” explained Arteta.
“You have to play the game with a slightly different approach. Because there are a number of things at stake,” he continued.
Arteta didn’t say what I was at stake. However, the public thinks one of them is his future with Arsenal. Because he was in danger of being fired.
“I think there is an increase in confidence after winning three big games in a row. We will play at home later. We have fans who support them. They will create their own atmosphere,” said Arteta.
