Jenkinson insists Arsenal are better than Tottenham

Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson believes that his teammates have better quality than Tottenham and will win this Sunday’s North London derby, The Daily Mail reports.

Jenkinson has been sidelined for three months with a back problem, but is hopeful that he can return to action at the Emirates Stadium this weekend. The Gunners have endured a bad run of form in their last two games with a 2-0 loss to Sunderland in the FA Cup following a 4-0 drubbing in the Champions League against AC Milan. Spurs are in great form and have lost just two out of their last 23 games, so Arsenal have a difficult task ahead of them.

The former Charlton player believes that Arsenal will have enough confidence and belief to come out on top against Spurs. Arsene Wenger’s side lost the reverse fixture this season and Jenkinson is keen to correct the wrong of White Hart Lane.

‘There’s no hiding the fact that they (Spurs) have done well, but we have got a stronger squad in my opinion and we have got to show that on Sunday. We have to beat them. We have been training hard this week and it is a big game for us. All the lads are going to be hugely up for it and we have to go out there and do the business’, Jenkinson said.

I'm convinced these idiots would still say they (Arsenal )were the better team if they were bottom of the division. Let's face it Jenkinson, take Van Persie out of your team and you are nothing, nothing ! Wake up and smell the coffee.

The only 'Van' that will be leaving North London this summer will be Van Persie. I will be sad to see Ade go, but we will spend to replace him, can the same be said for Wenger when more of your key players leave to chase silverware?

You just have to laugh, for years every Gooner has told me they are better because they are higher in the league, fair statement really, now they are 10 points behind they are better due to their squad! Really? Fabregas out Arteta in, a very average PL player at best, stop kidding yourself people, Arsenal are fighting for 4th for onereason alone....they are not one of the best 3 teams in the league, simple really.

If anyone is deluded, it's you mate. You are indeed having a better season than us. But better team? Wait and see how well you do when Harry leaves, Ade goes and Van goes to a better club.

You must be on drugs...On what basis do you make these statements. Is it the fact that we are 10 points ahead of you or the fact that you have not beaten us since 2009 in the Premier. I think you need to go into rehab and get a dose of reality.

Jenkinson who?! Lol! Of course Arsenal are better than spurs. I mean the 10 points that they are behind spurs by and the fact that in recent times spurs have got more points off of arsenal than arsenal have spurs plus with spurs players being better than arsenals who wouldn't say arsenal have the better team. Deluded idiot!
