Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to put their recent troubles behind them when they take on Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.
Ian Wright has claimed that Tottenham’s Harry Kane is ‘the new Drogba’ for Arsenal ahead of the North London derby on Sunday afternoon.
During his playing days, Chelsea’s former hitman Didier Drogba always had a habit of scoring against the Gunners and Wright feels that Tottenham’s Kane also falls into that bracket.
Kane goes into the match at the Emirates Stadium with two goals to his name from four Premier League matches this season, but both of those strikes came on the opening day of the campaign.
Ian Wright stated on his personal YouTube channel that Arsenal can pick up the three points against Spurs, but he did highlight their dangerous players.
“I genuinely think we are going to win,” Wright told his own YouTube channel. “Spurs have their own problems. They are better away from home. At home, they can’t break teams down.
“But then again, we know what we have upfront. We know what we are capable of doing, so Spurs will be very afraid, especially the Spurs defence that I saw against Newcastle.
“Son will be dangerous without a shadow of a doubt, so will Moura and Harry Kane. He [Kane] is the new Drogba for us. He always seems to score against us. But at this particular time, with the players we have got, I think we can score more.”
Mauricio Pochettino’s side go into this game with a number of off-field issues affecting the club, but they will be looking to put that all behind them for the North London derby.
If Spurs were to lose at the Emirates then it would only add to the early pressure the manager and the players are currently under.
However, three points could just provide the whole team with a much-needed boost going into the international break.
