BBC – Arsenal releases lineup ahead of Tottenham clash Auba & Mkhi Off

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, Sky Sports and so on.

This is what the boss had to say in his press conference ahead of Saturday’s north London derby at Wembley Stadium:

Just by focusing on their performance and on our team play. We want them focusing on how we want to play the game, tactically and technically. Once the game has started, these guys have experience, they have played top-level games. They know what is important and they know that the most important thing is to focus on the performance.
I think we are in the middle of the season, and they are top-quality players so why should they not repeat that type of performance?

on Alexandre Lacazette not getting off the bench against Everton…
You do not have to understand too much [about not being able to play]. What you want is that everybody focuses on winning the game. Do they start the game or not? In this game he didn’t come on because we had a problem with the goalkeeper. You do not want the players to understand too much about why they don’t play. They don’t understand. I completely agree with them because they want to play. That’s natural and normal.
