Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says Spurs have a player in their ranks who's such a 'big threat'
Sunday sees Arsenal and Tottenham contest the North London derby at the Emirates Stadium.
Before the international break, Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges would’ve been considered heavy favourites, but now it’s not so clear-cut.
The Gunners were bottom of the table after three defeats without scoring a single goal, while Spurs sat top after three 1-0 wins.
But going into matchday six, Arsenal have won their last two league games by a goal to nil.
Meanwhile, Tottenham have suffered consecutive 3-0 league defeats.
However, both sides were handed a confidence boost in midweek, winning their respective Carabao Cup clashes.
In Kane, Spurs have one of the best strikers in the world at their disposal, but his form in the league hasn’t been great so far.
The 28-year-old is yet to score in the top-flight, though he has netted in the Europa Conference League and Carabao Cup.
On Friday, Arsenal’s media team asked Arteta whether he’ll speak to his defenders about how to play against Kane.
“Obviously we have to show them the threats and the qualities, and where they will try to hurt us,” he said.
“We have to try to prevent that as much as possible and we know that [Kane] is a big threat and a lot of things come from his contribution in attack.”
