Tottenham Star Sticks The Knife In To Arsenal
Tottenham winger Gareth Bale admits Arsenal are a team on the decline, following the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has claimed Arsenal are a team on the decline, following the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
The Welsh midfielder believes his side took full advantage of Arsenal’s vulnerability in Sunday’s North London triumph.
“Arsenal have lost a few players, which makes them more beatable I think as that has damaged the way they play,” said the Spurs midfielder. “We exposed that. I think keeping your best players is a massive thing. They are used to how you play and what you do. It is vitally important to do that and build your team around them.
“It is important that we have kept him [Modric], and Arsenal were unlucky not to keep theirs.
Despite the claims, Bales insists Arsenal are only going to improve.
“But they are still a great team. They haven’t had the best of starts but I am sure they will improve. They have a lot of young players who are going to grow up in the next season or two and learn a lot. I am sure they will be fine.
“For us it’s massive for to beat the bigger teams, and especially our local rivals, which is important – not just for us but the fans.”
