Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger praises Henrikh Mkhitaryan attitude

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger praises Henrikh Mkhitaryan attitude

"If you look at the numbers, no, because he has high numbers", Wenger said when asked if there was a better striker in Europe at the moment than Kane.

He added: "Our strikers are top class as well and we want them to express their talent".

The roulette of January transfer window has now ran its course and Arsenal ended up losing Oliver Giroud and Alexis Sanchez, but gaining Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. He left Arsenal's 5-1 win over Everton early due to a thigh injury.

But despite games running out and the importance of the results of those around the Lilywhites, Alderweireld believes he and his side simply need to focus on themselves.

"These guys are top quality players. That is down to the referees and I think that sometimes, at normal speed, it is very hard to determine, I must say", the coach said.

Wenger then hinted at his plans to stop Kane from scoring at Wembley. They have another date set for Wembley later this month to take on Manchester City in the final of the Carabao Cup, a competition the Gunners manager has never won.

The North-London derbies are always feisty affairs. Maybe we are talking about one of the last managers to be able to apply this power over everything in a football club.

" I just think that, for us, it will be more about sorting out the tactical problems". I don't know if he will be available.

Harry Winks, Serge Aurier and Danny Rose also made their injury comebacks on Wednesday night but all three are likely to drop out as Pochettino is expected to recall a number of his key men who were rested in the cup replay. It should be a similar squad. "I will not take any risks if he's not 100 per cent because I've full confidence in Ospina".

Petr Cech is still being held out of training, however.

Following their controversial draw at Anfield that saw Spurs win two late penalties and Dele Alli booked for diving, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino defended his players by criticising the fixation with diving in English football.

"In my personal case I don't encourage them to dive at all".

Arsenal are now in sixth place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and break back into the top four this season.

That is because Spurs face arch enemies Arsenal in the second north London derby of the season at Wembley on Saturday lunchtime, in what could prove to a be a crucial game at the end of the season.
