Dixon, Wright and more: Twitter gears up for Arsenal v Tottenham
Lee Dixon and Ian Wright take to Twitter ahead of Arsenal's north London derby against Tottenham at The Emirates
Arsenal will look to make a swift return to winning ways against Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s north London derby at Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday, although Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last five Premier League games.
Tottenham, who were 2-1 winners against Anderlecht in the Europa League mid-week, are unbeaten in the Premier League since a 1-0 defeat by Manchester United on the opening day of the season.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the former Arsenal and Tottenham players ahead of the north London derby at The Emirates.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright admits he misses playing in the north London derby:
