Arsenal midfielder Iwobi taunts Spurs: C'mon Liverpool!

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi is backing Liverpool to beat Tottenham in next week's Champions League final.

It will be a huge week for both north London clubs as Arsenal take on Chelsea in Baku on May 29, three days before Spurs do battle with Liverpool in Madrid on June 1.

But Iwobi insists his side are fully focused on their own game - although they are desperate not to see their rivals get their hands on the Champions League trophy.

Iwobi said: "We're not trying to focus on Tottenham to be fair, I actually hope they lose.

"We're not trying to look at them, they've done well to be fair, you have to give it to them, but we want to focus on ourselves and bring a trophy back."
