Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have recently flocked to comments made by former Arsenal player Paul Merson ahead of the North London derby.

Today, the Gunners travel to The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to face Jose Mourinho’s outfit in a 4:30pm kick-off (per Premier League).

Ahead of the match, Merson discussed the derby and aired his concern for Mikel Arteta’s side as Spurs have been in impressive form recently.

He said: “I worry for them, I dread it, I can’t see how Arsenal win it, Spurs are just looking so good right now under Jose Mourinho.”

The comments were made on Sky Sports and were shared on Twitter by Football Daily, which then led to the clip being relayed to Tottenham fans by Last Word On Spurs.

It’s safe to say that a lot of Spurs fans were worried after Merson’s comments.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

So, what did Tottenham fans have to say about Paul Merson’s comments?

The last time the two sides met back in July, Mourinho’s side claimed victory at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a 2-1 win (per 11v11).

Are you confident ahead of the North London derby?

No, we will lose it

No, we will lose it

Yes, we will win it

So far this season, Tottenham have been in solid form in the top flight as they have won six, drawn three and lost one of their opening 10 matches (per BBC).

The Gunners, however, have been in much weaker form as they have won four, drawn one and lost five of their first 10 outings.

As can be seen in what these Tottenham fans had to say, they believed Merson’s comments to have been some kind of jinx for their club.
