Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka sends Tottenham six word warning ahead of north London derby



Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has provided a simple six word answer when asked about the upcoming north London Derby by Arsenal fans.

The game between Arsenal and Tottenham threatens to be the biggest between the pair in at least a decade, perhaps even since Arsenal won the league at White Hart Lane in 2004, with Champions League qualification on the line.

The Gunners currently have a four-point lead over Tottenham with three games to play, and can confirm their Champions League status next season with victory over Spurs. Equally, a draw would mean that one win would be enough to snatch fourth place.

As a result, Tottenham desperately need a win, and even then would have to hope their bitter rivals slip up either against Newcastle United or Everton to stand a chance of qualifying for next season’s premier European competition.

Xhaka sends message

Now, a message has come from the Arsenal camp, via midfield general Granit Xhaka. Tottenham’s Ben Davies warned after his side’s draw with Liverpool that the Gunners are under ‘a lot of pressure to keep it [their run of form] up and do it in the remaining games’.

And, as recorded on social media platform tiktok, a group of Arsenal fans stopped Xhaka in London and asked for his opinion on the upcoming clash.

The Swiss midfielder gave a simple answer. ‘We don’t speak, we do it’.

Whether he and his side will be able to back up the statement with a massive win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against a resilient Antonio Conte side remains another matter entirely.
