In the build up to Sunday, when Arsenal and Tottenham will unleash their fierce rivalry and battle it out for glory, Spurs’ manager Harry Redknapp like every other manager has praised Arsene Wenger but points out that Arsenal are not in a good form so they will look to give Wenger’s side a tough time.

“They are a fantastic club and have made a great signing in Arshavin. Arsene Wenger is a top manager and has done an unbelievable job there. But of course it would be a big lift for everyone around the club if we could beat Arsenal on Sunday. They are always big games against the Gunners. I think we have got a chance at home and it is probably a decent time to play Arsenal. They are a top team, Arsene has done an incredible job there, but at the moment their record tells you they are not playing as well as they did last year. However, they have still got some fantastic players, so it is always going to be a tough game.”
