Arsenal anger Tottenham with 'request' to postpone north London derby despite Arteta claim

Arsenal have reportedly angered their north London rivals Tottenham by requesting to postpone this weekend’s crunch derby. After a spirited performance against Liverpool on Thursday evening, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta issued a rallying cry to his team ahead of the clash, which could have huge implications on the Premier League’s race for fourth place. 

Arsenal seemed to be riding a more positive wave of team morale than their rivals going into Sunday’s scheduled meeting. 

They dug deep to hold Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Anfield on Thursday, despite going down to 10 men within the first half-an-hour. 

Spurs, meanwhile, crashed out of their Carabao Cup semi-final with a whimper as Conte oversaw home and away defeats against his former employers, Chelsea. 

With matters extremely tight in the race for fourth place as the season continues to take shape, however, the Gunners are seemingly intent on postponing this weekend’s north London derby.
