Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale has revealed the one thing he will not do to Tottenham Hotspur fans in the North London derby next week.

The Gunners and Spurs are battling hard for that fourth spot. Mikel Arteta’s men are currently the favourites to get there, but many believe the derby is the game that will decide who will make it into the Champions League next season.

In the reverse fixture, Arsenal were on another level compared to Spurs. They smashed three goals before half-time and even though Tottenham were much better after the break, a win for Arteta’s side was never in doubt.

Ahead of the derby next week, Ramsdale went on Peter Crouch’s podcast and the two had a little chat about players applauding fans.

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale: I won’t clap for Tottenham fans

There’s probably no other goalkeeper in the Premier League who has as much fun with opposing fans as Ramsdale.

The Arsenal man is constantly seen winding up the spectators behind him and even when he’s on the receiving end, he takes it well. Ramsdale told Crouch that he makes it a point to clap for the supporters every single game. However, he made it clear that he will not be doing that at Tottenham.

“I made a point to clap the fans, apart from Tottenham this season, because that wouldn’t go down too well,” the Arsenal shot-stopper said.

“But, every game I play the away end, I make an effort to clap.”

As we said earlier, many are convinced that the North London derby next week will be the decider for the final Champions League spot. However, the pressure is more on Spurs than Arsenal.

Antonio Conte’s side take on Liverpool at Anfield this weekend and unless there’s a surprise, the Reds should be able to pick up a win as they continue to put pressure on league leaders Manchester City.

Arsenal face Leeds and if they win that game, Arteta’s side will go into the North London derby with a five-point lead against their fierce rivals.

If things pan out this way, Arsenal can seal Champions League qualification at Tottenham’s home with a win, which would make it a whole lot sweeter for Gunners supporters.
