They have been that bad away from home that at times I have found it hard to watch them.

Tottenham comes into this game one place and four points better off than their London rivals, in fifth on the Premier League standings.

He has clarified his comments though ahead of this weekend's north London derby against Arsenal, and as reported by Sky Sports, reminded journalists that he too had fallen victim of diving with Argentina at the World Cup, as well as suggesting that he was previously misinterpreted.

"It's an opportunity to come back in the table and get closer to the Champions League spots".

Tottenham have shaken off their early teething problems at their temporary home and are unbeaten in their last 12 league games at Wembley - showing similar form to last season when they were invincible at the now demolished White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal will meet for the 195th time in all competitions on Saturday. "Arsenal have lost six away games this season, but have got one of the best records at Wembley in recent years, so this is a bit of a home game for them".

Wembley is a happy hunting ground for Arsenal's current generation as well. They might've struggled at the same pitch against the likes of Brighton, Burnley, Swansea and West Brom, but they find it tough to break these sides down because of the way they defended and refused to make it an open game.

The mayor said the city's rising grad rates prove the public schools are better than ever. The West Ada School District, Idaho's largest district, has a 84.7 percent graduation.


Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino fears that English football has changed for the worse as managers no longer have as much control over everyday business. Now we start to feel that it's home, when before it was just a new house.

Wenger will decide today whether to play Petr Cech or David Ospina in goal as the Czech continues to recover from a calf injury that led to his substitution in last Saturday's 5-1 win over Everton.

Tottenham struggled at England's national stadium when playing in the Champions League group stage last season, but Pochettino believes his side have finally become accustomed to their new surroundings.

Defeating Arsenal would help that ambition, while carrying the added bonus of derailing Arsenal. "But of course those kind of games are the ones you always want to be involved in", Alderweireld said, as quoted by the Mirror.

Lucas Moura could make his debut after working on his fitness in training this week following his deadline day move from Paris Saint-Germain.

"I think he will be ready, maybe to be in contention for Saturday", the Argentine told the club's official website. "We need to assess him, but after the last session I hope we can put him in contention".
