Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczęsny is known for his brash confident nature and his comments after the Gunners win at QPR have undoubtedly heightened the tension in north London.
Having made an excellent save late on at Loftus Road, Szczęsny was interviewed by Arsenal TV and had a stinging rebuke for local rivals Tottenham.
These quotes came before Chelsea secured all three points at Old Trafford and Szczęsny admits he thought Spurs had drawn 0-0 with Southampton, presumably failing to hear of Gareth Bale’s late winner at White Hart Lane.
Szczęsny: “I believe (2 wins) will be enough. Look at Chelsea’s fixtures as well, they have Tottenham and Everton left and they won’t be easy games… Tottenham do not have enough quality, so there you go.”
Intriguingly, the inflammatory quotes which originally appeared on the official Arsenal website have now been removed.
This is not the first time the Arsenal keeper has taken a dig at Spurs, which will no doubt endear himself to Gooners everywhere.
Around this time last season, the Pole said he “hates” “that other north London club.” And it would be “fantastic” if Spurs finished outside the Champions League places, which they duly did.
Video of Wojciech Szczęsny saying Spurs don’t have “enough quality” is below, with a longer clip of the post QPR interview after.
