The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are already beginning their preparations for the North London derby. Spurs are set to face off against Arsenal on Saturday, and it has all the makings of a fantastic fixture.
A hotly contested rivalry between two sides that are bang in form, and two sets of players that are amongst some of the best in the Premier League. Indeed, we’re expecting a classic down in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Ahead of the game, both sides will likely be feeling pretty confident, but Mauricio Pochettino’s recent comments regarding Lucas Moura are sure to make preparations even smoother for our resident Lilywhites.
Moura has yet to play for Spurs, and so his arrival in the team would certainly be exciting, not to mention the fact that he would be a bit of an unknown quantity for Arsenal to deal with.
Unsurprisingly, this news has generated a lot of excitement over on Twitter, with Spurs fans taking to the social media site to discuss it.
It’s fair to say that a lot of supporters are expecting a big performance from Moura if he is selected, and one fan has even called for him to replace Dele Alli in the first team.
Take a look at what else has been said below…
