Defeat on Wednesday would 'end' title hopes, admits Almunia

Manuel Almunia has admitted that a loss for Arsenal tomorrow against Spurs would all but end their chances of winning this season’s Premier League trophy.

The Gunners ‘keeper, speaking a week after Arsenal’s defeat at Barcelona, also revealed that he expects the atmosphere to be much tougher than the one he faced at the Nou Camp.

“It’s crucial. If we drop anymore points then we’re out of the [title] race. We need to approach Wednesday’s game with that in mind.

“At Tottenham it is going to be tougher. Barcelona’s stadium is massive with a lot of people. But it is not the same pressure and the people are more gentle. They enjoy their team.

“The rivalry Arsenal have with Tottenham will switch the people on. The atmosphere is more serious and tough. But we have played there many times and we know that very well.”

Fourth placed Spurs still haven’t cemented their Champions League place yet and so there is plenty at stake on Wednesday when Harry Redknapp’s will be looking to make up for their FA Cup semi final defeat to Portsmouth.

Gooner Talk will have all the build-up to tomorrow’s game with injury news, team predictions and lots more ahead of the vital derby clash.

True.. we NEED to win this match! Not only will it keep us up with chelsea and put us 2nd… if we win our confidence will shoot up i think.. prediction – 2-1 arsenal.. scorers : Bendtner & RVP … Modric to score for them.

I think Almunia and Jensen are the two worst goalkeepers in England, and look at us and at Burnley, we’re like 15 places up.

But, I love his comment that Spurs fans don’t enjoy their team hihi
