Harry Redknapp believes that Tottenham are confident they can defeat Arsenal in the North London Derby this weekend. Mikel Arteta will welcome the Lilywhites to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon in what is expected to be a blockbuster clash.
The Gunners head into the tie off the back of a composed 1-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park at the weekend, extending their unbeaten start to the Premier League season. Spurs will also be feeling a sense of invincibility after they scored two stoppage time goals against Sheffield United to continue their rich vein of form under Ange Postecoglou.
The North London Derby never fails to impress and Redknapp is looking forward to seeing how James Maddison gets on. The 26-year-old attacking midfielder has proven to be a fantastic addition at Tottenham after joining from Leicester City in the summer.
«It will be a good game, at the weekend,» said the former Spurs boss on talkSPORT, as quoted by HITC. «Both teams are in good form. Tottenham have done well. Maddison, what a signing for that money. What a good player.
»A fantastic talent. Tottenham are looking strong. So, I think they will go to Arsenal on Sunday and feel they can get something from the game. It’s going to be a great London derby between two good teams."
Son Heung-min is also looking forward to the North London Derby, insisting that the Gunners are afraid to face Spurs this term. In an interview with The Times, the South Korea international said: "[Arsenal] won’t want to face us at this time.
