Wembley will feel like home for Arsenal, says Merson

"But of course those kind of games are the ones you always want to be involved in", Alderweireld said, as quoted by the Mirror.

Alli has been particularly criticized after receiving his third caution for simulation.

Wenger has conceded that while - according to the statistics - Kane is the best striker in Europe at the moment, he said that his side are also blessed with attacking talent. I think it's similar characteristics and quality.

He added: "When you compete against massive sides like Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and the broadcasters give them massive money, that massive money, for them, goes to investing in new players".

"Before, England was a little bit of a paradise for football".

"Every striker will do that".

Arsenal provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Macey, Mertesacker, Holding, Mustafi, Koscielny, Chambers, Monreal, Mavropanos, Bellerin, Nelson, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Wilshere, Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, Ozil, Iwobi, Welbeck, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang, Lacazette.

"I've no problem with that [having to make do without Cech]".

It is the first time Wenger has taken Arsenal to play Spurs at Wembley, a ground where the Gunners traditionally thrive, winning the FA Cup final in 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Premier League, spending over 21 years in charge at Arsenal. Tottenham finished fourth but missed out on the Champions League as Chelsea won the tournament, Redknapp was unceremoniously sacked and - despite the unfortunate reality that Chelsea were champions of Europe - things seemed to have turned out for the best as far as Arsenal fans were concerned.

Ron Jones and Brian Kerr will be in the commentary box for us at Wembley.

Harry Kane has scored 35 goals in 36 games and recently cemented his name as part of the "Premier League 100 club" by netting his 100th goal which salvaged a late draw at Liverpool.

The rejuvenated Arsenal will be taking on their rivals who also are in top form at the Wembley stadium.

The hosts were in cruise control after 26 minutes, however, when Moussa Sissoko's drilled cross deflected cruelly off Butler's heel and wrong-footed 'keeper Joe Day on its way into the Newport net.

"The Arsenal game was not the goal, it was just to be back as quickly as possible".

However, while insisting that they symbolise a bond within the group of something greater than friendship and that they are "special" to him, Son revealed that he was not the master behind the creation, but it was that of fellow attacker Dele Alli.
