Wenger: English players are the best divers

Both teams boast lethal attacks, Arsenal perhaps more so than they did before the January transfer window after bringing in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gunners come into the game on the back of a thumping 5-1 victory over Everton while Spurs drew 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield last weekend. Mauricio Pochettino has been trusted with developing players - Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier and more - from talented young players into elite performers.

"He has a very professional attitude in training and matches", said Wenger. That is down to the referees and I think that sometimes, at normal speed, it is very hard to determine.

Wenger then hinted at his plans to stop Kane from scoring at Wembley. "I can talk and talk and talk, but it's the numbers which will show that".

"I think they had a good rule in England when I arrived here". But Pochettino claims to have made no decision as yet. You have not to let the emotions take over.

"Of course Wembley is a pitch that is quality, a stadium with a big crowd and it is always a special day in your mind so overall, yes".

The London Evening Standard understands that the senior trio could be in line to feature against Tottenham Hotspur if they overcome illness and injury before the bout on Saturday.


"When Arsenal are really at it - as they were at home against Everton last week - they can embarrass teams". I don't know if he will be available. Nacho Monreal should be alright, so it should be a similar squad. The 35-year-old hasn't trained this week but reports suggest he'll be fit so I think Cech will once again start between the sticks with David Ospina on the bench.

"But the English players have learned very quickly and are maybe the masters now".

However, he adds: "Our strikers are top class as well and we want them to express their talent".

Tottenham start this match as strong favourites - but Arsenal convincingly won the reverse fixture 2-0 despite little sign they'd be capable of outplaying Spurs, and will look to do the same thing here as they attempt to make up ground on the top four.

Also Arsenal have an incredible record at Wembley, having stayed unbeaten in 10 Cup Finals, semifinals and Community Shields, so you could imagine we were playing at home! "At Wembley you play special games where you are under pressure to perform and we responded well to it every time".
