Arsenal Legend Puts Pressure On Derby Win
Arsenal will fall seven points behind their neighbours with defeat at White Hart Lane and could be five points adrift of the Champions League places if Chelsea also pick up three points today.
The Gunners also have a tough task to overturn Bayern Munich’s 3-1 advantage when they travel to Germany in their last 16 second leg of the Champions League later this month leaving Arsene Wenger another season without a trophy.
A home defeat to Blackburn in the FA Cup was a large number of Arsenal fans’ final straw with Wenger who is now as unpopular as ever in the red side of North London.
Overmars won a number of medals in his time at Highbury under Wenger and the Dutchman believes the Arsenal fans must stick with the manager and the board.
“Sunday is crucial for them,” Overmars told talkSPORT.
“At this moment in the Premier League, it is very difficult for Arsenal. They have to win the match. If they don’t, the season is over.”
“They have to keep faith in Mr Wenger and the board.”
“The problem is football has changed a lot in the last ten years. With all clubs having private investors or owners, it makes it more difficult.”
