Tottenham and Arsenal fans spoke about each other’s squads and their respective strengths and weaknesses ahead of this weekend’s North London Derby.
The Gunners host Spurs at the Emirates Stadium for tomorrow’s early kickoff, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side arguably going into the match as top dogs in north London at the moment.
While in the past Arsenal fans will have had plenty to mock about Tottenham, Spurs fan and blogger Stuart Woodrow had plenty of stick for Granit Xhaka after his poor start in the Premier League.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Stuart said: ‘Their midfield is a bit of a liability. Xhaka is a delight for Spurs fans to watch. If there’s a decision to make, he consistently makes the wrong one.’

Stats from the Telegraph this week backed up Stuart’s point, with the Switzerland international reported as giving the ball away more often than any other player in the Premier League this season.
Despite impressing at previous club Borussia Monchengladbach, Xhaka has failed to live up to expectations at Arsenal.
This has also led to former Gunner Martin Keown telling the Daily Mail that Arsene Wenger should start Jack Wilshere in midfield for this weekend’s visit of Spurs.
