    Spurs star Kane snatches London derby record off Arsenal icon Henry

    Tottenham’s Harry Kane now boasts a better minutes-per-goal ratio in London derbies than Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. The England international has made a habit down the years of producing his best in meetings with local rivals. Arsenal 10/1 to beat West Brom 3-1 That record was maintained on Saturday as he bagged a brace in a 3-2 victory over West Ham. Kane is now netting at a rate of one effort every 113 minutes in clashes with Spurs’ capital neighbours, with nobody able to better that return. 113 - Harry Kane now has the best minutes-per-goal ratio in Premier League London derbies (minimum 10 goals). Overtaken. https://t.co/r5smMoaS6L — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 23, 2017 Arsenal icon Henry graced many derbies over the course of a distinguished eight-year stint with the Gunners between 1999 and 2007 – with none taken in during a loan spell in 2012. He collected a club record 228-goal haul during his time in north London, with the bar raised when it came to the art of finding the target in north London. Kane has already broken through a century of efforts for Spurs, with six in seven outings this term carrying him to 105. He will have to wait until November before taking in another Premier League derby, but will then face back-to-back clashes as Tottenham play host to Crystal Palace and then take on arch-rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

    Arsenal cult hero Bendtner loses Premier League goal record to Spurs star Eriksen

    Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen has overtaken Arsenal cult hero Nicklas Bendtner as the highest-scoring Dane in Premier League history. That record changed hands on Saturday, with Eriksen among the goals as Spurs took in a London derby date with West Ham. 4/1 for Arsenal and West Brom draw His second-half strike took him onto 33 efforts in English top-flight football, edging him ahead of his enigmatic countryman. 33 - Christian Eriksen has now surpassed Nicklas Bendtner as the outright top scoring Dane in @premierleague history. Updated. https://t.co/6qllMIKLjp — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 23, 2017 Of Bendtner’s Premier League haul, 24 of his goals came while on the books at Arsenal, and he also netted eight times while on loan at Sunderland in 2011-12. His most prolific campaign came in 2008-09, when he netted nine times in the Premier League. Eriksen can already claim to have bettered that record, having reached double figures for Spurs in 2014-15. He now has two in the current campaign and will hope to pull further clear of Bendtner in the months to come.

    'Go **** yourselves' - Wright blasts Arsenal fans after Oxlade-Chamberlain backlash

    Arsenal legend Ian Wright has taken aim at some of the club's fans on Twitter, after facing criticism for a post supporting former player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Liverpool signed Oxlade-Chamberlain in a £35 million deal on transfer deadline day, ending the England international's six-year association with the Gunners. Arsenal 8/1 to beat West Brom 2-1 Wright posted: "I'll always love you @Alex_OxChambo," prompting a backlash from Arsenal supporters, who pointed out the retired Gunners striker's criticism of other players in recent weeks. Mesut Ozil in particular has come in for stick from Wright, who recently described the playmaker as "laughable" over his apparent refusal to sign a new contract at the Emirates Stadium. Having had his fill of abuse, Wright posted: "Can't believe how many Arsenal fans I'm having to block over the ox tweet. I don't want people like you following me. Go **** yourselves." The former Gunners striker has been outspoken in his views of Arsene Wenger's side as a whole this season, branding goings on in north London "a shambles" back in August. He told Radio Five Live: "When you go through the list of everything that is going wrong, and you've got to throw in recruitment - whoever's doing the recruitment, someone's got to have a massive, massive word - it's an absolute shambles and I'm really gutted for everybody involved."

    Arsenal plot Welbeck and Ramsey contract talks in bid to avoid Alexis and Ozil transfer saga repeat

    Arsenal are planning to hold contract extension talks with Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey, but Arsene Wenger sees more deals being run down. The Gunners have seen the issue of expiring contracts become an unwelcome distraction at the Emirates Stadium, with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez entering the final 12 months of their current agreements. Arsenal 6/1 to beat West Brom 1-0 Both continue to generate intense exit talk as a result, although Arsenal have worked hard to keep the pair on their books. Wenger hopes that a similar situation can be avoided with another international duo, with discussions set to be held with England forward Welbeck and Wales midfielder Ramsey – who are currently tied to the club until 2019. “Yes, that is something we want to address,” admitted Wenger. “Both of them are in a good moment for us.” While hoping that such talks will progress positively, Wenger concedes that more players are going to follow the lead of Ozil and Sanchez as transfer fees continue to rise. He added: “You will have more and more players going into the final year of their contract. “You will be in a position where you either extend for money you cannot afford, or you go into the final year of their contract. “This season, there were 107 players in the Premier League who got into the final year of their contract for the first time, and you will see that more. “The clubs want too much more for normal players. Because they say if one player [Neymar] is worth £200 million, then this player is worth £50m. “But everybody knows £50m is too much for that player and they cannot afford it. So what happens? The club cannot sell, and doesn’t extend the contract, so more and more players are going into the final year of their contract.” Arsenal did choose to sell one of their contract rebels over the summer, with Liverpool taking Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a £35m deal.

    Wenger wants FFP to be fixed or completely ditched

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes "something will happen" in the next 12 months to slow rising transfer fees. The Frenchman had been a supporter of UEFA's Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations before he questioned its value in the wake of Neymar's world-record €222 million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain. Wenger, whose team will host West Brom in the Premier League on Monday, said he expects moves to be made to slow clubs' spending. "Something will happen," he said. "It is for the first time that politically the German prime minister came out and the president of UEFA came out and I think politically something will happen in the next 12 months to regulate and limit the transfer amount." Wenger said there were two options going forward – either stricter regulations, or none at all. "You have to go one of two ways. Regulate it properly, or leave it completely open," he said. "But you cannot be in between. That is where we are at the moment. That is only to the advantage of some clubs who can deal with rules in a legal way. "The regulation has to be stricter and clearer, or open it completely: you can do what you want, provided you can guarantee you have the money to pay."
