Kevin Campbell has warned it could be “too late” for Tottenham to land Champions League spots when they take on Arsenal in the rescheduled north London derby. as he told the Highbury Squad.
There is a lot going on in this game as both Arsenal and Tottenham compete for Champions League football at the end of the season.
No date has yet been set for the north London derby but it seems the broadcasters are playing a clever game.
The later they leave it, the more the game depends on it and it could be a case of defeat in this game for both teams, ending their top 4 hopes.
Former Highbury hero Campbell warned it could be down to that game as he dismissed the notion Spurs would have the easier run-in in these final months of the season.
“The crazy thing about this game is that it could be at a point where it might be too late for them,” Campbell said.
“We hope so, it might be too late for them.
On Tottenham’s schedule: ‘What easy on paper? (Compared to Arsenal). It’s easy to write down profits and losses.
“One thing we do know is that the game is going to be such an outstanding game. When all the chips are in the middle, or we’re ahead of them, or they’re ahead of us. Who knows what will happen?
“It could come down to this game – if it went against us then you’re gutted. But you believe in this team. We have a game in hand with them.”
They don’t want to be left on the losing bench when the north London derby takes place as this closely fought game will be the most aggressive.
NLDs always produce goals galore, action drama and controversy. It wouldn’t be a surprise if there were a few notches this time.
It is also crucial when the game takes place, both in terms of injury status and the form of both teams.
And while both Arsenal and Tottenham are rocking it, they’ll also have Manchester United and possibly West Ham to look over their shoulders as they chase that fourth place too.
