Former Tottenham midfielder Micky Hazard has tweeted “there’s nothing better than a north v south London derby” ahead of Spurs’ clash against Arsenal on Sunday.
The two fierce rivals are set to meet at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon for the 12:00pm kick off.
Tottenham go into the clash in poor form without a win in six matches, while also suffering a 1-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen at Wembley on Wednesday evening.
Hazard, who still holds a close affinity to Spurs watched the defeat and posted on his personal Twitter account that he was “feeling gutted”, while also sharing his eagerness for the upcoming fixture.
Bad day at the office, very baffling but we can still do it,feeling gutted this morning but nothing better than a north v south london derby

Form will be expected to fall out of the window for Sunday’s clash.
However, Tottenham have not been helped with injuries to star duo Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane in recent times.
The pair have returned to training this week, with Kane training with the team, while the Belgium international trains on his own.
The star forward is the most likely to feature against Arsenal, but he will not be expected to start the match having been out since September.
The two rivals last met in March and played out a 2-2 draw with goals from Kane and Alderweireld cancelled out by Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez.
