PIERS MORGAN has urged Arsenal to call on the spirit of The Invincibles ahead of tonight’s crunch north London Derby.
Mike Arteta’s side are currently four points clear of Spurs in fourth place but a defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will create a tense run-in.
And Morgan has warned Arteta’s charges that “losing is not an option.”
The lifelong Arsenal fan tweeted: “North London Derby Day.
“You know what to do, lads – losing is not an option.”
Arteta is well aware of the stakes for tonight’s match and insists his troops won’t sit back and rest on their laurels.
The Spaniard said: “We always play to win and that’s the way we will prepare this game.
“I’m sure [Spurs] will try to do the same. That’s why hopefully it’s a really spectacular game.
“It’s the opportunity to achieve something we haven’t achieved for many years.

“It’s the game that will decide it.
“Normally you don’t play games like that in the league unless you are competing for the trophy but we know that, at our level, what this game can deliver to us is really important.”
The former Gunners midfielder said of the magnitude of the match: “The expectation is huge.
“This is an opportunity for one of the clubs to achieve what we are looking for, and on top of that is the emotion and the passion that the derby brings with it.
“We need to be away from that and focusing on what we have to do.
“To win the match we are going to have to be at our very best.”
