Thursday night’s Europa League success against Shamrock Rovers – albeit with 10 changes from the DW Stadium – continued the momentum of a squad in fine form.
“It doesn’t get any bigger than this, does it?” Bond told the Spurs website.
“We’re really confident and looking forward to it, but not over-confident. We know the threat they carry.
“I went to watch them at home to Olympiacos on Wednesday night and they are always a threat when they have the ball.
“They have some players missing but they’ve also replaced them with some good players. We hope we can give them a problem or two as well and it’s a game we’re looking forward to.
“We had a difficult first couple of weeks to the season with the Everton game postponed and then the two defeats but everything has settled down since the close of the transfer window, a couple of good performance and victories and the mood around the place is noticeably different.
“Confidence is high and we’ll be more than a match for any team at the Lane - and it doesn’t come much bigger than the Gunners on Sunday.”
