Hoddle gives insight into Tottenham mindset, predicts Arsenal clash

He says the current crop of Tottenham stars have shown they have more than what it takes to win at the Emirates, especially after their 3-1 Champions League win over Real Madrid earlier this month.

England meet Australia at Twickenham Stadium in the second match of the Old Mutual Wealth Series.

Despite finishing above their north London rivals for the first time in 21 years last season, Tottenham's talented group are yet to add any silverware to a trophy cabinet which hasn't seen any additions since Jonathan Woodgate scored the winner in the 2008 Carling Cup final. The Spurs management sacked three managers, including former Arsenal man George Graham, and two caretakers before zeroing in on Glen Hoddle to tackle the Frenchman during that period.

Arsenal haven't beaten Tottenham in the league since March 2014, a barren streak stretching to six matches.

Arsenal are sixth in the standings, four points behind third-placed Tottenham and 12 behind leaders Manchester City, with six wins in 11 league games. "No, not at all", he said, as quoted by the BBC.

"It is a massive challenge competitive against a team that in last 20 years won more trophies than us". And I'm a big fan of Mesut Ozil but he doesn't turn up in the big games. But, Arsenal have largely been imperious at home and should have enough firepower to avoid a loss, although it might be a tough ask to win against a highly confident Spurs side.

"So I'd be amazed if he didn't play him this time with Sanchez moving across to the left". Arsene Wenger has all too frequently cut a jaded and frustrated figure on the touchline over the course of the past two seasons, while Mauricio Pochettino has consistently proved himself to have the tactical edge over most opponents.

"He didn't play away from home at City, I think that's the only game he didn't start (along with Liverpool)".

Arsenal's club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette has completed 90 minutes on just one occasion since his summer arrival from Lyon. Harry Redknapp was the last Spurs boss to head back to White Hart Lane with three points following an enthralling 3-2 win back in November 2010. "Not by me talking here, we need to show on Saturday that it's not true".

On paper, then, Saturday's game at the Emirates appears Tottenham's to lose. The first is that making predictions when Spurs play Arsenal is a risky business.

"Now we need to believe we do not deserve too much praise or credit. Now we need to believe we are there and build our project and our era too". "I admire him a lot, he is a very special manager". As another season passes them by, it is quite hard to see them challenging for the league in the near future, let alone actually winning it.

Tottenham will welcome back Kane, Alli and Winks after they missed the international break, but Toby Alderweireld is set to miss the clash through injury.
