Johan Djourou looks forward to Spurs test
Arsenal defender Johan Djourou believes facing Tottenham is like going to war.
The two sides face off this Sunday at the Emirates, with the Gunners hoping to avenge their 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane earlier in the season.
"When you play them, you forget the table; it is a battle and the best team will win," Djourou told Arsenal.com.
"They are in great shape this season, they have been playing a lot better than before but you have to forget about that and go to war.
"They have a lot of quality, we shouldn't be blind about that. They have players like Modric, Parker, Adebayor and Bale so its a good team.
"When you play well you gain a lot of confidence. At the start of the season some people wrote them off because they lost a few games but since then they have been unbelievable. But it is up to us to show that we are the kings of London."
Victory for Arsenal would see them close the gap between themselves and Tottenham to seven points.
