Arsenal anger Tottenham with ‘request’ to postpone north London derby despite Arteta claim

Arsenal anger Tottenham with ‘request’ to postpone north London derby despite Arteta claim

Understandably, Spurs are seemingly keen to play their local foes in such a circumstance, given the bragging rights and Premier League implications that would come with a victory. 

Tottenham are two points behind Arsenal in the table, but thanks to a host of Covid-related postponements of their own, they also have two games in hand. 

A response to the request is expected on Saturday.  

It comes despite a midweek post-match message from Arteta which suggested that he and his players were pumped up and ready to give it their all at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
