Former Tottenham defender Paul Miller has urged Harry Redknapp to tell his men to attack Arsenal from the off as they look to beat their rivals for the second time this season.
Spurs sit third in the Premier League, ten points ahead of Arsenal who are fifth, as they look to finish above their neighbours for the first time since 1994/95.
And Miller feels the first goal in the game will be vital and wants Spurs to use their pace on the wings to get at the Gunners early.
“Harry won’t worry about Arsenal,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast. “Harry never worries about the opposition, generally. It’s about us and he’ll go there, he’ll have plenty of pace in the team and he’ll just say, ‘let’s go and attack them’.
“Arsenal’s confidence will be a bit low at the moment and the fans are going to be a bit down after their recent spell of results but Harry will want to say let’s go there and score in the first quarter of an hour or twenty minutes because it makes it a lot easier.
“As we all know, nowadays in the Premier League the first goal is key, especially in big games like that.”
Meanwhile, the former White Hart Lane defender believes that if they negotiate some tricky games coming their way third place will be all but sealed.
“Tottenham have come a long way in the last couple of years, certainly since Harry has been there. They’ve got a fantastic squad of players and play delightfully.
“I believe as long as they avoid defeat against Arsenal and Chelsea the minimum they will finish is third.
“I can’t see them winning the Premier League, I’d love them to but I can’t see Man United and Man City blowing up.”
