Arsenal taking momentum into Tottenham derby - Wenger

Arsene Wenger is happy to see his Arsenal side take some winning momentum into this weekend's clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners defeated Leicester City 1-0 at the Emirates on Wednesday night to make it three victories on the trot, including the weekend's FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City.

This Sunday, they face North London rivals Spurs at White Hart Lane and Wenger believes they have some positivity heading into the meeting with the in-form second-placed side.

"We're in a positive mood to prepare well," Wenger told Sky Sports.

"The target is clear for us, just go out and win the game.

"Of course, every win gives you a little momentum, so that's just going into the next game."

The narrow win over the Foxes came courtesy of an own-goal after Nacho Monreal's shot struck Robert Huth late in the contest.
