Spurs star Harry Kane: Arsenal will come out firing after humbling against Bayern Munich
Tottenham striker Harry Kane expects Arsenal to “come out firing” in Sunday’s north London derby after the Gunners’ heavy defeat against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
Spurs travel to the Emirates with confidence and momentum following a 3-1 league win over Aston Villa on Monday and a late 2-1 victory over Anderlecht in the Europa League last night (Thursday), with Kane scoring his fifth goal in three games and Mousa Dembele registering for the third game in a row.
On the other hand, Arsenal suffered a humbling 5-1 loss in their Champions League clash in Munich this week.
But Kane says that might make Sunday’s showdown harder rather than easier, as Arsene Wenger’s side look for a big response in a high-profile game against their arch-rivals.
“They took a bit of a hiding in midweek and they’re going to be wanting to put that right,” he said. “We’ve come off two very good wins so we’re going into the game on a high and hopefully we can finish the week off well.

“It’s going to be a great battle and everyone’s looking forward to it. We want to go there, set a high tempo and play well.
“It wasn’t a good night for them [on Wednesday]. A lot has been said about that result and, as fellow players, you know they will come out firing to try and put things right, so we know what to expect.

“I’ve never played at the Emirates before so hopefully we can go there and get the win. We’re going to have great away support there, as we always do, and we’re looking forward to it.
“It’s a big game coming up on Sunday and we couldn’t have asked for more from the two games this week.
“Anderlecht are a good side and it shows the character of our team to go again. It was a great strike by Mousa to get the win and we could not be more delighted.”
