Nwankwo Kanu sends strong message to Arsenal players ahead of derby

Arsenal are not in good form at the moment.

Nwankwo Kanu has taken to social networking site Twitter to send a strong message to the Arsenal players ahead of this weekend’s game against Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal will take on North London rivals Tottenham away from home at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners will head into the Premier League game on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Swansea City at the Emirates Stadium.

Former Arsenal forward Kanu has urged the current players to step up their game and start winning again.

Arsenal need to win the North London derby on Saturday afternoon in order to maintain their chances of clinching the Premier League title this season.

Arsene Wenger’s side are not in good form at the moment, having lost 3-2 to Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the league last weekend.

Prior to that loss, the Gunners had gone down 2-0 to Barcelona at the Emirates in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie.
