Arsenal face arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur in a hugely significant North London derby clash at Wembley on Saturday, and Gunners fans are all thinking the same thing ahead of the game.
Arsene Wenger’s men come into the clash in sixth position and five points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea in the race to qualify for the Champions League, while they are also four points below their latest opponents.
Defeat would see them drop seven points behind Mauricio Pochettino’s men and severely dent their chances of finishing in the top four, although they will come into the match full of confidence following their 5-1 win against Everton at the Emirates Stadium last weekend, as well as the fact they have a really good record at the new Wembley.
Arsenal supporters have been having their say ahead of the derby via social media, and they are all thinking the same thing.
While one said “I’m both nervous and excited about today’s game”, another said “I don’t remember a NLD where I’ve been so nervous and excited at the same time”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

I’m both nervous and excited about today’s game. Spurs are clearly the favourites considering Arsenal poor away form but they have performed well at Wembley when we’ve played there and we look a different side going forward now with our January signings. #TOTARS #COYG #NLD

NLD incoming. Arsenal won the league at WHL but I can honestly say, I don't remember an NLD where I've been so nervous and excited at the same time. We got this, I know we can get a result but every player needs to be on their game! #afc 🔴
