Tottenham Hotspur lost against Arsenal in the North London derby last weekend.
The former Tottenham midfielder has suggested that Tottenham lost the North London derby against Arsenal last weekend due to their arrogance.
Jenas, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport and BT Sport, has suggested that Tottenham should be not arrogant when they are playing big teams such as Arsenal and Manchester United.
“It’s a weird one because obviously you look back to the North London derby, the game against Manchester United at Old Trafford,” Jenas told BT Sport. “They went into those games kind of playing the Spurs way.
“They are at a level now where they are quite arrogant, they are playing good football, they pop it around quickly, they are one of the most enjoyable teams to watch in the Premier League when they are really at it, and I felt especially in the game at the weekend, that arrogance went a little bit too far, they forgot that it's a battle, they forgot that it’s a fight, maybe a little bit of more of that needs to be involved in their tactics in the way they approach these bigger games.”
Tottenham have one of the best teams in the Premier League, but their record against the big teams away from home in recent seasons is not great.
According to Sky Sports, since Mauricio Pochettino became the Spurs manager in the summer of 2014, Spurs have won only once in 17 away league fixtures against their 'big-six' rivals.
This poor record needs to be addressed if Spurs are to win the Premier League title anytime soon.
