Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur this weekend in the much anticipated north London derby, and it seems that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has a plan.

It obviously involves Harry Kane, with the Spurs forward the focal point of their attack and of course all the attention from the media, and when Wenger was asked if he knew what to do in terms of stopping the forward, his answer was rather tongue in cheek.

Wenger quipped that his plan was “to keep him quiet, yes,” and noted that Kane is a top quality forward, and his side will have to be at their very best if they want to stop their rivals – and seemed fully aware that a win was needed in terms of their faint title hopes and certainly their push for the top four – not to mention London pride.

Wenger also spoke about forward Lacazette, with the player recently dropped for the big games the Gunners had to face, and the Arsenal boss thinks that while his mind is not yet made up in terms of who will pay on the weekend, he does trust the forward.

Wenger was asked if he had an issue with the Frenchman, and said: “No, not at all. 

“I have a big choice to make every time, decisions to make up front.

“He has played many games. He did not play away from home at City, that’s the only one, and overall I trust him.

“The decision is not made yet,” he said. “It’s possible because he’s available.”
