Jamie Carragher has responded to a Tottenham Hotspur fan mocking Arsenal for having no backbone by telling the fan “it has to be proven this season” by Spurs, he told The Overlap.
This lack of backbone is being thrown at Arsenal because at the end of last season, they were the ones who opened the door for Tottenham to secure Champions League football.
Defeats against Crystal Palace and Newcastle United – both away and at night – have hurt Mikel Arteta’s side hard.
But the hardest hit was their defeat in the north London derby, if Arsenal win that match, fourth place is in the bag.
Instead, that door was opened and Antonio Conte’s entire squad benefited, with Carragher issuing this response when Flav told Tottenham fan Robbie of AFTV that it wasn’t the fact that Spurs finished one point above them, but ‘how Arsenal collapsed’ is something that might not be the case. be fixable.
“Let’s not start by saying that Spurs have the backbone,” Carragher said, raising his hands in confusion. “Oh my gosh! How many times do you throw it away. It has to be proven this season.”
Who will appear as the backbone this season?
Spurs have had the Spurs crest on their heads for years and years, and in fact, until they crossed that dotted line, that will never change.
But the man in their lair is far from that and that is where Spurs fans are hoping things will turn around for them.
Arsenal collapsed in alarming fashion last season, and with this campaign coming to an end, it wouldn’t be surprising if the north London duo had very little between them again.
Then the real test will come and the backbone of these teams will be questioned, with positive summer transfers going forward.
Arsenal’s best buy may have been Gabriel Jesus, who joined several Premier League winners from Manchester City, while Richarlison was the most expensive buyout for Tottenham, although Ivan Perisic may have been their best addition on a free transfer.
