Arsene Wenger: It would be 'dangerous' for Spurs to read too much into derby victory over Arsenal

Arsene Wenger warned Tottenham it would be “dangerous” to read too much into their victory.

Spurs leapfrogged their London neighbours as they try to finish above Arsenal for the first time in 20 years.

But Wenger is convinced Arsenal will bounce straight back as he prepares to start fit-again Alexis Sanchez against Leicester in midweek.

The Gunners boss said: “Yeah, of course, it is dangerous. But the fact is we lost a game and we cannot deny that.

“But overall there’s a long way to go, so I believe just keep going and recover, show quickly a strong response on Tuesday and then we see where we stand after that. It’s not the first time we lose a game, but how we bounce back is to take the information from what we got at Tottenham and respond very quickly.

“One player who has a chance to be on the bench or to start maybe is Sanchez. We have been consistent recently, but it was a big game.

"And again, when it was tense, we did make the mistake that you cannot afford and it’s a bit disappointing to concede the second goal.”

Wenger was unhappy with his side – and referee Martin Atkinson. He added: “We made too many technical mistakes. We lost too many balls where we could have put Tottenham in trouble.

"And the Spurs defensive pressure, especially Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb. They got away with a lot today, especially Mason.”
