Former Gunner Marc Overmars believes Arsenal’s season will be finished if they fail to win against Spurs tomorrow afternoon.
The Gunners currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, two points behind fourth placed Chelsea and four adrift of Andre Villas-Boas’ side who currently sit third.
And Overmars, who spent three seasons at Arsenal, insists if Arsenal want to finish in the top four this season then they cannot afford to drop any points against their North London rivals at White Hart Lane:
‘Sunday is crucial for them.
‘At this moment in the Premier League, it is very difficult for Arsenal. They have to win the match. If they don’t, the season is over.’
A negative result tomorrow will no doubt heap even more pressure on Arsene Wenger, who looks almost certain to go an eight successive season without silverware and could, for the first time since joining Arsenal, finish outside the top four in the Premier League.
I for one agree with Overmars. A poor result will be hard to recover from, especially a loss to the club that THINK is bigger and better than us.
Its time for our players to stand up and be counted for, and to show all those doubters out there that we are still a top four side.
