The two sides have been evenly matched this season, with the Blues finishing 3rd in the Premier League on 72 points and the North Londoners on 70 points in 5th.

The defender hasn’t lived up to his reputation since his £35m move to north London, and so the comments made ahead of the tie are considered somewhat ironic by fans.
