You’ve probably seen Lucas Torreira pick up a red card at the very end of the North-London Derby on Saturday for a foul on Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose. The decision from referee Anthony Taylor was, to put it mildly, ridiculous. The Uruguayan did commit a foul, and it was somewhat reckless from him, and it probably deserved a card, but certainly not a red one. There was no intention, no malice in what he did.
Torreira now faces a three-match ban because of Taylor doing a poor job, and he’s set to miss not only the crucial crunch clash with Manchester United next weekend, but also games against Newcastle and Everton. .......Read more here.....

With just a few hours to go before the north London derby at the Emirates between Arsenal and Tottenham, the tension is building amongst both sets of fans.
Is has become the custom in recent years, there is far more to play for than just local bragging rights. Both teams are in the fight for the top-four and it could be argued Spurs will believe they are in the title race.
It is no doubt a big game for both teams. However, I just cannot see the Gunners losing this match. I may be cursing them, but the Gunners under Unai Emery are looking like a slightly tougher nut to crack. .......Read more here.....

Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane ‘may be risked’ in next weekend’s north London derby against Arsenal, according to England boss Gareth Southgate.
Kane pulled out of the Three Lions squad for international friendlies against Germany and Brazil. The striker has just returned from injury and there were suggestions in the media that the striker was not in fact injured.
However, Southgate disputed that fact by telling the media: “Harry Kane – I knew he was in trouble because he stayed down – Harry Kane doesn’t stay down. .......Read more here.....

This weekend is, of course, the north London derby, as Arsenal visit north London rivals Tottenham in a massive Premier League clash.
As always there has been combined teams and talk of who would get into whose team. However, Sky Sports pundit and former Arsenal star Paul Merson reckons the only Arsenal player who would get into the Tottenham team is forward Alexis Sanchez.
In all honesty, it is hard to agree with Merse on this one. He can be an idiot at times, but I think he is pretty accurate in his assessment of this: Sanchez is probably the only Gunners player who would get in the Spurs team. .......Read more here.....

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham are set to launch a summer bid for reported-Arsenal transfer target Morgan Schneiderlin. The Saints are believed to rate Schneiderlin in the £20million bracket and blocked the Frenchman’s exit last summer.
The Standard claims that Spurs are set to offer either England winger Andros Townsend, or young French midfielder Benjamin Stambouli in part-exchange to sign the highly-rated French international midfielder.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men had a move for Schneiderlin blocked last summer, as the Saints had already lost a raft of their key players to other Premier League clubs. However, they believe they can successfully secure his signature this summer because of his relationship with former-Saints boss Pochettino. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal host Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium in the north London derby on Saturday looking to build on last weekend’s 3-0 win at Aston Villa.
The Gunners are unbeaten in the Premier League this season, but three of those games have finished in draws. Arsene Wenger side are currently fourth in the table, four points off league leaders Chelsea.
As per usual Arsene Wenger fielded a weakened team in Tuesday’s third round Capital One Cup game against Southampton and the Gunners suffered a 2-1 home defeat. The veteran Frenchman fielded very few first team regulars in the defeat and rested his star performers ahead of the big derby clash. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal hosts Southampton at the Emirates Stadium in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.
The Gunners ended a run of four games without a win in all competitions last time out winning 3-0 at Aston Villa and producing a far more impressive display than in previous games. The Gunners had previously gained three consecutive Premier League draws, before suffering a 2-0 defeat at Dortmund in the Champions League.
The draw at Aston Villa was the Gunners first clean sheet in the Premier League this season. Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil played a key role in the win creating a goal and also getting on the scoresheet. New signing Danny Welbeck also opened his Gunners scoring account against the Villans. .......Read more here.....
