Harry Redknapp comments on upcoming Tottenham v Arsenal clash

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has commented on the upcoming League Cup tie between his old team and Arsenal.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT that fans are guaranteed a good match any time Spurs face up against Arsenal.

The two teams have been drawn against each other in the next round of the League Cup, as clubs up and down the country compete for the first piece of possible silverware this season.

It will be a good chance for fans to see how the teams shape up against each other and how they are each thinking about the tournament this season.

“The competition doesn’t normally warm up until the quarter-finals when everyone senses a chance to go all the way and suddenly put their best team out, but any time Arsenal play Tottenham, you’ll get a good game,” he told talkSPORT.

Which side has the edge?

Both teams have made indifferent starts to the new season, as they both search for their best level of performance and some consistency.

However, this is one rivalry where form and momentum goes out of the window for any game in any competition.

Tottenham have the home advantage, which gives them the benefit of a strong home backing as they look to get the first blow in this rivalry this year.

Tottenham may also feel that they’ve got a point to prove after a disappointing performance in the final of the competition against Chelsea last year.

However, Arsenal are arguably the better side when it comes to controlling possession and subsequently a match, as they look to wear down their opponents and progress.
