Kane is Europe's best, admits Wenger despite derby tension

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp insists Tottenham Hotspur clash is a top-four six-pointer

Kane is Europe's best, admits Wenger despite derby tension

In my personal case? No.

Asked if he preferred the game to be at Wembley rather than White Hart Lane, Wenger replied: "Yes, because we have a positive history there".

Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira believes Tottenham star Harry Kane is the "most complete striker" ahead of team-mate Gonzalo Higuain and Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski. Most of the time, when a player is going to the goalkeeper, they push the ball away from goal.

"I don't tell my players to dive", he said.

This is a really big week for Tottenham, but they approach it with confidence and key players back from injury.

Every striker will do that. They extend the rules.

"Where is it and how far can you go?"

"But today we are so sensitive about details and sometimes it is difficult for me, because when you are honest and you try to explain the things - and my language is not English - it is hard to be right in my words".

81,978 - the Premier League attendance record set by Spurs' recent Wembley win over Manchester United could well come under threat. Since the start of 2018, they have suffered upsets to Swansea City and Nottingham Forest, and have only won three away league games all season.

"But I feel very good after 90 minutes [against Newport]".

"Arsenal will be tough to play, they have good quality, talented players and are one of the best teams in the league", Pochettino said at a press conference.

The Gunners will make the short trip across the English capital looking to build on their 5-1 win against Everton at The Emirates last weekend. "Arsenal's recent form has been typical of the team under Wenger in recent years; one good performance followed by an terrible one".

After Saturday, the Lilywhites visit Italy to take on Juventus for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday.

"Once the game has started, these guys have top-level experience", Wenger said.

Mauricio Pochettino's side - and in particular, the manager himself - have been painted as the villains in the wake of their dramatic 2-2 draw at Anfield.

The defence looked much more solid against Everton last time out and while Wenger could be tempted to go with a back three/five against Spurs, I think the boss will stick with a flat back four.

"I think we are in the middle of the season and they are top-quality players, so why should they not repeat that type of performance?"
