Last weekend Tottenham ground out a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge that lifted them top of the Premier League on goal difference.

Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho renewed their managerial rivalry, but goalmouth action was in scant supply on an afternoon where defences came out on top.

Two thousand supporters will be back in the stadium for the Arsenal game, and they will hope to see their top-of-the-table Spurs side inflict more misery on their out-of-form neighbours.

There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a dreadful start to the season for Arsenal, though – their worst since 1981-82, having taken only 13 points from their opening 10 games.

Defeat against Wolves last weekend was a third on the bounce at home for Arsenal, and, while they have actually fared better on the road so far this season, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is one of the last places they will want to go right now.

The two clubs last met in July, where Spurs came back from 1-0 down to win 2-1 in the London derby…

Jose Mourinho

On Playing Arsenal

José Mourinho said that it is “always a good moment to play Arsenal and it is always a bad moment. The rivalry between the two clubs makes the game even more beautiful to play” according to the coach.

Simultaneously, it is “always a bad moment” because Arsenal is a good team, regardless of what it may say in the table. It is the standing in the table that has some worried that Tottenham may be a little complacent coming into the match, which the coach was asked about.

Of course, Mourinho went on to compliment some of the better wins of Arsenal over the last year, which have come against bigger clubs, including in the FA Cup against Chelsea and Manchester City and just recently against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

José Mourinho said Arsenal have several good players and are “fast in counter attacks” and “fast in transition” which is not something he needs to tell his team.

However, Mourinho said he “probably will” say something, but that the team all knows it is a derby. Furthermore, as Tottenham versus Arsenal nothing else really matters, except that.

On Fans Return for Tottenham

Arsenal got their first taste of fans in the stands on Thursday in Europa League, but Tottenham will have their first fans since March as approximately 2,000 fans will be in attendance on Sunday.

In terms of the impact of the fans on the match, Mourinho said that it really depends on who the fans are and the profile of the fans.

Mourinho described the profile of two different fans, the first was coming to enjoy both the game and “the most beautiful stadium in England”.

Mourinho seems to see this fan who is coming primarily to enjoy the stadium as a bit less raucous, with passion that will not make a difference. However, the alternative is the fan who wants to play.

If the fan “wants to go their (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium) and play, if they want to go there and wear a Tottenham shirt, then yes, that can give a little bit more motivation and pleasure for us”.

Mourinho’s point is not to sell jerseys, rather that the corporate fan who is coming for the gameday experience versus the fan coming to support the club are two different things and if we get more coming to support the club, then the fans can help.

“It will be interesting to see the fans in the stadium and the impact it has on the players, the referee, and the game itself. While I know the clubs need the fans back and the television broadcasters need something to drown out the language from time to time, I have enjoyed the sound of pure football, but am excited to hear live singing again on Sunday. Hopefully that singing comes from a bunch of fans in jerseys, ready to play and support their Spurs.”

Mikkel Arteta

On Spurs having fans in the ground being an advantage

“Well probably, because this sport without fans is completely different and everything is flat” he said when asked if Jose Mourinho’s men have the advantage.

“The players lose a bit of purpose and emotion and it’s something you want to share at the end of the day we are here to entertain, we are here to make the fans enjoy.

“They have a huge passion for our football club and when they are able to transmit that that gets directly into the players.

On what makes Mourinho special…

“I know him well,” he said. “We spent some time together in Barcelona and obviously we’ve played against each other a million times. I admire him, I think what he’s done in the game is incredible, it’s remarkable.
“He has a unique character and personality. He’s someone that I think in football we have to appreciate and admire. Me, as a young coach, I know what it takes to be sitting where we are and the way he’s done it in different countries takes a lot of guts.
“He’s brave and then he has an edge to be able to transmit a mentality to everyone to keep winning. That mentality for me is what makes him really special.”

Tottenham to Win – 19/20 with FanTeam

Top of the league at the start of the gameweek with the chance to widen the gap to 11 points on their North London rivals. Spurs’ and Arsenal’s form are worlds apart right now and that’s reflected in the odds.

Even so, at just under evens, José Mourinho’s side look well priced to claim a home win. Harry Kane has a fantastic record in the NDL and his partnership with Son could be the difference as Arsenal struggle for goals.
